Ron Kieper Jazz Ensemble entertained nearly 300 individuals from all over the country at our closing dinner for Executive Women International. His beautiful Jazz music was the perfect pre-function entertainment and background music during our dinner. I would highly recommend him for any event. It was a pleasure working with him.
Fantastic group of guys to work with! They were very accommodating and
flexible to our schedule and music requests. Their music created the perfect
atmosphere for a formal fiftieth birthday party. Absolutely would recommend for
your next gathering - formal or informal. You will not be disappointed!
I hired this group to do a small party. They were a hit! Everyone loved them. I will be hiring this group again for my next party!
These guys are great. We had a party of about 125 and everyone there raved about these guys. I would most definitely use them again.

What to Expect
Our group provides a wonderful ambience for any private party or other special occasion. There is just something about a live jazz group that offers a level of class and sophistication that cannot be matched by other styles of music. We will always show up early for setup, dress the part, will only take very brief 5-10 minute breaks for each hour of performance, and will be kind and courteous to you and your guests.
