When looking for a jazz group, please consider The Fran Dimmick Jazz Trio. These professional musicians are seasoned and have been playing shows, corporate and private parties, cabarets, restaurants, weddings and other venues for several years. They are "user friendly" and have an extensive repertoire that includes jazz and latin standards, pop, classic rock, swing, oldies, country and holiday tunes. They are available as a duo, trio, quartet or 5-piece ensemble. Because the Fran Dimmick Jazz Trio has an eclectic song list, they can play tunes from various genres of music. Their jazz repertoire gives a nice ambiance for your cocktail party and then they get the fun started with your favorite party tunes.
