What to Expect
The team of Yazz Jazz Entertainment provides continuous, seamless music from start to finish. The energy will be uplifting, fun and professional. The team can take requests, watch the vibe of the room and make sure the music is appropriate both with volume and style. Amy goes to all of the venues ahead of time to make sure all of the load-in information is clear and that the clients are happy and satisfied. Most importantly, the dance floor WILL be packed!
Yazz Jazz Entertainment was established in 2010 by vocalist and bandleader, Amy Yassinger. After numerous requests came in for Amy’s band for events, her band Amy and the Yazz Men turned into Yazz Jazz Entertainment. It was at a wedding where she connected with a DJ and learned how crowds interact at weddings and what they are looking for musically. Because over 65% of couples request a DJ, Amy brought on several talented and experienced DJ’s to her team to enhance the experience of her couples. Her band grew from 4 members to 39 members.
Professional vocalist Amy Yassinger (nicknamed the “jazz singer”) has been building her singing career for a decade. As a bandleader and recording artist, her music has been heard in festivals, events and cruises both in America and overseas. She has recorded 2 albums; “Sometimes I’m Happy” (distributed by Warrior Records) and “Cruisin’” with the Shout Section Big Band and have sold internationally.
Born and raised in Chicago, Amy discovered her passion for music as a teenager after having spent a summer at Berklee College of Music in Boston. Her studies in Jazz and Pop Music continued at the University of Miami in Florida, followed by a Master’s Degree from Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Amy embraces all opportunities to sing in a variety of styles. She has appeared on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” as a backup vocalist for Charice Pompengco and Usher. She is regularly performing with her own band within Yazz Jazz Entertainment or as the lead vocalist for The Shout Section Big Band or the Park Avenue Orchestra. When she is not performing or recording in Chicago or working with clients to create a musical landscape for their events, she is working as an educator, teaching a variety of private voice students.
Her love for weddings continues to grow with each event that her team does. Whether clients are looking for a subdued, elegant event or a big, lavish, non-stop party, Amy goes above and beyond to deliver.
