They were exactly what i wanted. They were a very professional and enjoyable jazz trio that played during our cocktail reception and dinner. I would highly recommend this group!
I would highly recommend Ed and the guys to anyone looking to have a classy or more upbeat swinging event! They were friendly, and even arrived early. It made for a lovely evening with no worry.
It was the first time we've used The Ed Barrett Trio for a New Orleans Ballet Theatre event and we were, by all counts, impressed. They were professional, timely, warm, and engaging. They were incredibly flexible with all aspects of their participation, and it was and absolute pleasure to have them play at our event. We would highly recommend them without reservations to anyone looking for a band for their next event.
We thoroughly enjoy the Ed Barrett Trio at our event, Saint Joseph Abbey + Seminary College "Deo Gratias" each year! Thanks for entertaining our guests and making their evening enjoyable each year!
