Wedding Reception in Carlsbad, CA on 09/25/2010
"Third Season Jazz performed during dinner at my wedding reception and they were incredible! They worked with us in advance to formulate a play list that would be meaningful to us. They were at the venue and setup ahead of schedule and were happy to accommodate when I asked them to start playing a little earlier than originally planned. Their performance was flawless and they were very obliging even though we had to move our reception to a smaller venue at the last minute without as much space as we had originally planned. Thanks much to Ian and the band!"

Banquet in Carlsbad, CA on 09/12/2009

I worked with Ian Tordella for the booking and he was very responsive to all my questions. The group arrived on time and looked and sounded amazing. They were extremely flexible and even to our guest requests. This group certainly made a lasting impression on our guests. I would defintely recommend them!"

Wedding Cocktail Hour in San Diego, CA on 07/31/2010
"Ian and 3rd Season played our wedding and reception, and they were Dyno-MITE! So much better than a DJ. Of all the things we paid for at our wedding, Ian and 3rd Season Jazz was easily our best investment.
They customized wedding and reception music based on our choices, and Ian put together a great band, with vocalist. The fiance was concerned it would be too loud in our small room, but that was not a problem. Like the other reviewers, i highly recommend them. "

The ceremony, where they did a flute/guitar performance that set a wonderful tone to the entire wedding. 2. The reception, where the 3-piece band did a great jazz set for the cocktail hour and into dinner.
They were perfect for all of our needs."

Wedding in San Diego, CA on 07/18/2009

Wedding in Rancho Santa Fe, CA on 09/16/2006
"They were great! We didn't want a "wedding band", that played the typical wedding music. We wanted the standards, swing, and Latin. They played them all really well. Everyone is still commenting to me about what a great band we had. We also hired a jazz vocalist with the who did a suberb job. I'm from a family of professional musicians and I work in film in Hollywood, I'm very picky, and this group made me very happy.

Corporate Function in San Diego, CA on 09/05/2006
"This band was hip yet very classy. They did not look like a typical jazz trio but they definitely played like one. They were patient with us while we figured out how we wanted them to set up and they allowed us to move them to a second location without any fuss. Their music was absolutely beautiful. They chose the perfect songs and rhythms for our event. Everyone had positive feedback about the jazz trio. We were very satisfied with Third Season. They were fabulous. I hope to hire them for future events. Thanks guys!!! "
