TJ & Dave Jazz Duo are a vocal and piano jazz duo who perform wonderful live jazz music to energize private parties, cocktail hours, dinners, company parties, and jazz clubs in the Metro Atlanta GA, Athens GA and the Southeastern Regions.
Enjoy the classic jazz and swing hit music of Fitzgerald, Ellington, Holiday, Sinatra, King-Cole and Krall, along with a mix of Broadway, Latin Jazz, R & B, and Pop hits. The elegant and charismatic T.J. Graham is a jazz vocalist with 5 CD's to her credit. Her infectious style and stage presence have earned her the praise of jazz enthusiasts and critics alike. All agree that she and Keyboard Dave have put together a fabulous repertoire of songs.
We booked TJ and Dave for our daughters Engagement Party. TJ's voice is fabulous and Dave's jazzy accompaniment was great. They provided the perfect entertainment to get everyone in the mood for a celebration
Enjoyed them very much. Very professional. I would highly recommend.
The song selections were perfect and we received very positive feedback from all who attended. I also appreciated your flexibility to perform at the garden site and relocate to perform at the reception. You were professional at all times and your performance transitions were smooth. I sincerely apologize for being so late with this review!! Your perfomance was outstanding and the cost was very reasonable, a high value event.
T.J. Graham is a Memphis-based jazz vocalist who, according to Robert D. Rusch, Cadence Jazz Magazine "is a jazz singer without fanfare or gimmick, who uses understatement and considerable subtlety. She chooses her material and addresses it, not with competition, but with support and clear delineation, producing a natural partnership in her interpretation and reflections.
It all appears so effortless, but talent and sincerity should."
Born in Buffalo, New York, T.J. knew early on that jazz was her true passion. In an era when the pop sounds of musicians such as Michael Jackson, the Commodores, Jeffrey Osborne, etc. were the rage among her contemporaries, T.J. was drawn to such jazz greats as Betty Carter, Shirley Horn, Nancy Wilson, Sarah Vaughan, AI Jarreau, Mel Torme, Joe Williams, Johnny Hartman and Nat "King" Cole. While T.J. cites these and other jazz greats as her major influences, she credits Sheila Jordan and Jay Clayton as being her initial inspirations.
With five CD projects to her credit, T.J. has performed and/or sat in with many of Memphis' talented jazz artists and has hooked up with Keyboard Dave to bring her music to the Atlanta GA, Athens GA and the Southeastern regions of the U.S.
Her 2 most recent CD’s can be purchased from her website, which is:
Keyboard Dave's superb jazz keyboard stylings have entertained audiences in the New York/ New Jersey areas for 25 years before he relocated to Atlanta, GA and has now taken up residence as one of Atlanta's best party and wedding pianists.
Playing acoustic piano, he'll make romantic love songs come alive with feeling and emotion and when the occasion calls for it, he'll turn up the volume on his multiple electronic keyboards and turn into a one-man-band with a wonderful rhythm section, perfect for slow or fast dancing.
Audio samples of Keyboard Dave's music can be found on his website:
Together with TJ Graham, this awesome duo's experience and musicianship has brought top-notch classic jazz music to the Atlanta, GA music scene.
TJ and Dave play the right mix of instrumental piano & vocal songs to keep your atmosphere lively, yet they maintain the appropriate volume level never overpowering the location, so there is plenty of room for your conversations over the music. Through the magic of midi file accompaniments, they also have quite an extensive repertoire of music that can be danced to, whether it is big band swing, latin, rock & roll, r&b or pop hits, they play it all for your listening or dancing pleasure!
Why invest a large amount of money to hire a full jazz band when TJ and Dave can provide you with very affordable soothing dinner music or lively dance music that adds style and joyous ambiance without breaking the bank?
The duo can bring a small sound PA for use with a provided piano, or they can bring a portable piano and sound system that allows them to perform at indoor or outdoor locations without pianos.
