I had The Jazz Experience play this past weekend to celebrate the life of my beautiful wife who passed away much too young. I asked the band to play background music and accompany the James Taylor song, "You've got a friend". Since this was a life celebration, I asked that they play more cocktail party than funeral and they nailed it. They played a great variety of songs, it was great background music to some wonderful conversations that were going on, but it also was great music when folks paused and took time to listen. Would definitely hire them again.
