The Envoy Quintet is a group of talented musicians who aim to effectively embody the styles of small group jazz. All musicians are students at some of the top music schools in the country including the Berklee College of Music, and the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music. The quintet is a versatile group that can provide music for any type of event.
Group did exactly as we discussed- jazz standards and were even able to pull off happy birthday too. My husband enjoyed hearing them throughout the evening of his birthday and said they did very well (he has played bassoon for over twenty years/ so he knows).

What to Expect
The Envoy Quintet performs a variety of jazz ranging from swing and bebop to modern jazz. The client may specify which style he/she prefers for the event, or a general feel they want for audiences members or event attendees.
The Envoy Quintet is led by saxophonist Spencer Edgers, who is currently pursuing a degree in jazz performance at the Boyer College of Music and Dance at Temple University. The rest of the band includes trumpet, piano, bass, and drums. The group is looking for performance opportunities in Seattle, Bellevue, Kirkland, Edmonds, and any other surrounding areas. It is preferable for the venue to have a piano, but it is not absolutely necessary.
