Performed as ballads, swings and Latin styles, Eugenie's repertoire includes Great American Songbook jazz standards made popular by greats such as Sarah Vaughan, Frank Sinatra, Nina Simone and Ella Fitzpatrick. The band also performs beautiful renditions of contemporized, smooth jazz tunes made popular by the likes of George Benson, Bobby Caldwell, and Oletha Adams. Eugenie also soulfully renders many R&B favorites and blues tunes and as a singer/songwriter she creates and performs wonderful jazz and blues tunes.
Eugenie's vocal style is described by audiences as extraordinary, awesome, sultry, sexy, and beautiful; while the musicians that play with her are among the A- list Pacific Northwest musicians including, Seattle Jazz Hall of Fame pianist, Overton Berry, Pianist, Darin Clendenin, Chris Morton and Jim Cochran; Bassist Osama Afifi, James Clark and Nate Parker, and Drummers Devan Stovall and Akim Finch.
Beyond incredible vocals, as a band leader Eugenie has the unique ability to interact and engage the audience and is a superb entertainer.

"Eugenie captivated everyone with her beautiful sultry voice. I love all the song choices and how she interacted with the audience making them feel connected with her. She also sang songs that you can dance to. Additionally, her band was just as fantastic. They were all so in tuned with each other like a family. My guests also complimented Eugenie directly and her band on how much they enjoyed the entertainment, especially listening to Eugenie sing. We are very fortunate and proud to have a local talent like Eugenie Jones! I highly recommend hiring Eugenie Jones Jazz Trio for any occasion!"
