“Bringing back the romantic days of the old jazz standards.”
Do the names Ella, Diana, Sarah or Melody Gardot mean something to you musically? The Jade Moon Jazz Band covers songs performed by these artists and more! Freshly new to the jazz scene, we have been performing jazz standards, contemporary jazz and blues. Our vision will bring back the songs from the days of the "torch singer" and introduce a jazzy take on today's ballads.

What to Expect
We love entertaining you and your guests with a setlist of many of the old jazz standards. Our performances have brought us to local wineries, brewery restaurants and bourbon/whiskey bars and fine dining restaurants.
Our band has featured up to 5-6 musicians or we have also played as an acoustic duo. We are flexible to fit the sound you are looking for.
Our favorites include songs performed by many of the greats: Ella Fitzgerald, Nancy Wilson, Sarah Vaughn, Julie London and recently Melody Gardot. We also like to play some more current songs with a jazz rendition just for fun.
Our sets last 50 minutes and we have been scheduled for 3-hour performances or less. We enjoy being the focal band for weddings, but have also loved being the pre-reception entertainers for casual gatherings and formal parties.
