The Secret Jazz Band added just the right touch to our luncheon. With over 150 guests, it was just the right blend of music for everyone there. The band came early to set up and were so accommodating, friendly and professional. We enjoyed their presence and performance immensely.

Thank you, Alice! It was such a pleasure working with you and your team. The day could not have been more lovely! Thank you for taking such good care of us. I look forward to working with you in the future!
Katie & The Band
What an amazing musical experience. This band clearly could play any genre, but they specialize in vintage work of Gershwin, Berlin, etc. Front and center of the quartet is the lead singer, charismatic Katie Harris. Her sensitive interpretations of legendary love songs and sassy swing tunes is captivating She evokes stylings of Peggy Lee and Sarah Vaughn, but is uniquely her own artist. Some of LA's best recording session musicians accompany her brilliantly. But the best judge of any event is the audience--smiling, bouncing, and on their feet at the end! I was one of them.
Our guests had a wonderful, magical evening and it wouldn’t have been as lovely without the musical stylings of The Secret Jazz Band. Looking forward to seeing you at our next holiday bash coming up at the House of Blues.
Worked with Katie for a work event and the music was perfect. Feedback from all that attended was great as well. Will be working with them again!
