Prickly Pair Jazz Duo played at my wedding reception. First off: they performed wonderfully! They created an an atmosphere that was pleasant, classy, and relaxed. Secondly, all my guests loved the music! Nobody had to shout over each other and the overall mood was pleasant. These guys are on time, respectful, clean cut, and very talented. I would recommend them to everyone!
The audience of ~75 loved their performance. They have played with some of the all-time jazz and blues greats for a very definite reason. We are definitely having them back. Top notch.
Prickly Pair was exactly what I was looking for at my event.
They came early, were prepared and were very nice!
Everyone enjoyed the music!
Prickly Pair showed up ahead of time, set up and started doing their thing - which is wonderful to hear! Smooth Jazz which everyone could enjoy - added to the atmosphere without being intrusive just gave the right "vibe" to the evening.
Would wholeheartedly recommend.
The guys were terrific. Consummate musicians and very personable. Our even planner mentioned how they added greatly to the ambiance. 200 attendees who stayed for the duration! So happy with how it all turned out!
I did not want a DJ for my wedding, but I did want some live jazz. The Prickly Pair Jazz duo was great: they played standard jazz favorites, and the music was a great compliment to the reception! Communication was very easy, and I enjoyed working with them.
We are so pleased with Prickly Pear the guys were amazing !!!! They entertained our wedding party for the whole evening ,there repertoire was amazing and we would only use them for our future events !!!
Dennis and Dave of The Prickley Pear Jazz Duo were perfect for our Celebration of life event even in a venue with less than stellar acoustics. Very accomplished musicians and very personable.
Our guests came about 10 minutes early so they asked if they could go ahead and start! The volume was just right to hear but still allow conversation. I went outside briefly and missed the one song I had specifically requested, so they played it again for me!
Couldn't have been better!
They arrived and were set up before our dinner began at the Musical Instrument Museum in the courtyard. They are experienced and talented and just very cool dudes.
This Duo was perfect for our event. Professional, accommodating and of course GREAT MUSIC!!!
Start to finish, this was a fantastic experience. These guys are great players.

Thank you so much for making our wedding so fantastic with your fabulous music. It was the perfect added touch that we were looking for.
They play straight-ahead jazz, quiet but intense. You can have a conversation over it, but it's worth devoting your listening attention to it if you're so inclined. -Jay P
These guys were super! I couldn't have asked for more. They're brand of music was just the right touch for our corporate event. They were also very accommodating in handling a few special requests. They are great musicians, and I would definitely use them again without hesitation. -Teddi J, Phoenix, AZ
Perfect for our event! -Jim R, Phoenix, AZ
I can’t recommend a better local jazz musician. We hired Dan for our wedding and he really kicked the occasion up to another level of class with his solid playing. We’ll definitely call him again for some future event. - Dave McElfresh (former jazz writer for Goldmine, Cadence, Coda, Downbeat, Wire, Phoenix New Times, Tucson Weekly, Jazz Now)
