Pianist Sean Stanley and vocalist Miss Dior possess a special chemistry; it's not simply their warm, dynamic interplay, but their unique blending of influences that comes together so effectively.
As well as performing as a solo or duo act for intimate occasions, the group is available in larger combinations. "The Sean Stanley Trio & Miss Dior" for a classic piano trio/vocal performance, all the way up to "The Sean Stanley Septet & Miss Dior" which provides the full "performance band" experience.
This polished group brings early jazz and blues to life, mixing landmark standards with “modern" jazz and popular songs helping to make your event special and memorable.
We hired the Sean Stanley trio for a corporate reception and they were perfect. Great song choices and the perfect volume to enjoy the music yet could still have conversations. Great guys and easy to work with. Would definitely hire them again.
We had the Jazz Trio with Sean on keyboard at our industry cocktail reception/tradeshow. They were perfect for the event. They played upbeat and fun music that was just background enough to allow conversations with no problem. Their look was elegant but funky. I had many comments and compliments from attendees on their sound and the prestige they added to an industry party. In fact, the facility manager liked them so much she took their card and fully intends to use them for future functions. I would highly recommend them for anyone looking to not have to worry about the entertainment - they'll take care of you! A 20 our of 10. Thank you again Sean for the fabulous performance.
Sean Stanley and Miss Dior have a robust resume, including performances at the TD Toronto Jazz Festival (as part of the Restaurant Host Events), Canada Day 2016 in Niagara Falls to an audience of over 500 people, finalists in the 2015 Toronto Blues Society's Annual Talent Search, as well as more intimate performances at Jazz Bistro, Evergreen Brickworks' “Thursday night Jazz" series, The Senator Wine Bar, their 4-year ongoing residency at Harlem Underground, as well as over 200 performances in the past 3 years.
