We plays dance music, jazz, bossa nova regularly in Bay Area venues - come out & hear us prior to hiring. We have Noel Jewkes on sax/clarinet for some engagements. The Alex Markels-Noel Jewkes quartet cd has received considerable radio airplay.
Lady "D" is versatile - we play a few jazz standards in the early part of an engagement and then go into Motown/Soul Dance music for the 2nd part of an engagement, or stay within 1 genre.
Karen Sudjian sings Bossa Nova - she sings in the original Portugese, as well as jazz and blues.
Tina Marzell has a active career in musical theatre and jazz engagements with the our band. She singsjazz standards & Broadway rarities.
I recently had the pleasure of hiring The Rent Party Rhythm Section for our Christmas tree lighting party, and I couldn't be happier with the experience. From the initial communication to the final performance, they proved to be an absolute delight to work with.
Alex's responsiveness and easy communication made the planning process seamless. He was not only accommodating but also displayed a remarkable level of adaptability when it came to last-minute changes in both timing and program. This flexibility truly sets them apart.
What impressed me the most was their ability to seamlessly transition between jazz and Christmas music. The variety in their repertoire added a special touch to our event, creating a festive atmosphere that perfectly complemented the holiday spirit. Their performance was a huge success, and our guests couldn't stop raving about them.
The Rent Party Rhythm Section not only met but exceeded our expectations. Their musical talent, professionalism, and willingness to go the extra mile left a lasting impression on everyone in attendance. In fact, numerous guests inquired about their contact information, a testament to the band's popularity at our event.
If you're looking for a band that brings not only exceptional musical skills but also a positive and collaborative attitude, I wholeheartedly recommend The Rent Party Rhythm Section. They turned our Christmas tree lighting party into a memorable and magical evening, and I can't thank them enough for their outstanding performance. I will absolutely hire them back every year!
I hired Alex Markels and Lady D to perform at our gala celebrating our 75th Anniversary and they were exceptional! They played various songs from old jazz to soul to pop. Everyone enjoyed them and they added more to our event! They were fantastic and I highly recommend!
I found Alex and Lady D and the tramps through Gig Salad and was very pleased! Alex came to meet with me on site more than once to ensure set up would go smoothly and was completely on board with how we wanted the evening to go. Our residents loved the music and danced the night away! Highly recommend!
We at Olimpia’s on the Boulevard have hired these fantastic musicians many times over and have never been disappointed! They are all great entertainers who truly have a passion for music and enjoy warming the hearts of all they play for!
Alex Markels is one of my personal favorites!!! He is an amazing guitar player and really brings this jazz standard to the spotlight! Lady D always brings her gorgeous voice and attitude, James Moseley & the 13 Strings constantly have us singing along, Tina Marzell & Karen Sudjian always soothe our souls, and I can’t say enough about Noel Jewkes…LOVE LOVE LOVE him on Sax!!! It is an honor and privilege to hear these musicians delight us on a regular basis, would absolutely recommend them!!!
