Dewdrop Society is the ultimate 1920s and 1930s jazz age band! Authentic hot jazz, swing, charleston, roaring society, barrel house, antique ballads, along with raucous New Orleans tunes, Harlem big band, and tin pan alley music for your soiree. Think swanky Gatsby with a Boardwalk Empire edge! (and certainly some Downton Abbey class without all the drama!)
Dewdrop Society has taken the party and wedding industry by storm! The band is a collective of musicians & leaders from the top New York City jazz era ensembles that's hitting on all sixes. And how! Dapper doll Shawn Aileen (from the popular retro music band Lapis Luna) is at the helm and joined by swell fellas on upright bass, clarinet and saxes, stride piano, guitar & mandolin & banjo, drums, trumpet, and trombone. For weddings & dancing we recommend our 6+ piece band. Dewdrop plays a mix of instrumental and vocal songs, and can be sized to fit any event (3tets to our 6/7+ piece bands). The band dresses the part and will keep the festivities going all night!
That Dewdrop sound is inspired by the music of Duke Ellington, Billie Holiday, Louis Armstrong, Fats Waller, Ruth Etting, Bing Crosby, Mills Brothers, the Boswell Sisters, and all the fanciful music of a century ago. Listen to Dewdrop and try not to move! Available for weddings, cocktail hours, speakeasy gatherings, burlesque shows, Gatsby garden parties, and any event requiring real, true to life hot hot hot jazz!
Voot! Here is what they're talking about:
"Simply perfect band! Definitely the best choice of the 1920s jazz bands, and we looked at all of them. Professional and fantastic musicians. Highly recommended." RM, wedding, February 2013
"Had them for cocktail hour. Wish I hired them to play dinner too! Our DJ was great but we should have had the band for a little longer because they were so much fun! Thank You, you really made things special for everyone in attendance." Anna G, cocktail hour Amagansett, NY January 2013
"Hired them for our wedding reception, full 8 piece band. What a fun group! Great song selection, started the dancing during dinner which we didn't expect (had DJ playing 80s & motown after band). definitely worth every penny. Run, don't walk to get this band! And they looked really great too." Ritchie A, wedding, Brooklyn, NY February 2013

"Absolutely amazing band! Best thing about our party was Dewdrop Society! We checked out all the 'hot jazz' 20s style bands and this band was by far the best of the lot as compared to music style, song selection, presentation, and correspondence (I'm a big music fan and really know my stuff). The lead singer is amazing and adorable. The music was so fun, the musicians were pros and obviously well versed, I was very impressed. What else can I say? Hire them. Do it now! Our guests raved about them. Thank you."
