WEDDING AND EVENT PLANNING
In addition to top notch music, our detailed planning is something past clients have greatly appreciated! We utilize a proprietary wedding planning document that covers EVERY detail you'll need to think about in terms of your wedding music and announcements. We aim to make planning as simple and fun as possible!
We agree to learn up to 4 new songs that aren't already on our song list to help customize our performance for you. We typically only take a break during your main entree for dinner, but play the entire rest of the reception. We coordinate all of the timeline details with your venue, caterer, and photographer in advance of your wedding, so that everyone is on the same page before the date of your wedding. We've got a track record of coming up with creative solutions to any challenges you might encounter along the way.
BAND SIZE AND INSTRUMENTATION
We offer a variety of instrumentation options to accommodate different size and space requirements:
6 pieces - female singer, keyboards, guitar, bass, drums, and sax
7 pieces - male and female singers, keyboards, guitar, bass, drums, and sax
8 pieces - male and female singers, keyboards, guitar, bass drums, sax, and trumpet
9 pieces - male and female singers, keyboards, guitar, bass, drums, sax, trumpet, and trombone
We're happy to provide input on the right size band based on your venue, and also the styles of music you're most interested in!
CEREMONY AND COCKTAIL HOUR:
We can professionally cover your ceremony and cocktail hour needs. Our keyboardist, Andrea Shaut, is an incredibly talented classical pianist - currently the pianist for the world-famous West Point Military Academy Glee Club. She has experience playing at hundreds of wedding ceremonies. We can add other instrumentalists or vocalists for the ceremony as well.
For your cocktail hour, our popular options include solo piano (jazz or classical), sax / piano duo, guitar / bass duo, or a jazz trio (horn, guitar, and bass). All of our cocktail hour options will provide great background music for your guests to enjoy!
PAST CLIENT REFERENCES:
Every client we've worked with has offered to be a reference for us. Not a bad track record! We can tell you we're great, but it's better to hear it from others that have worked with us. We'll gladly share the names/numbers/email addresses of some of our most recent clients so you can hear how much they loved us directly from them. In addition to awesome music, the other themes you'll hear from everyone are that we're organized, responsive, accommodating, professional, and fun to work with.

"I can't say enough about how professional, talented, accommodating, and caring Joe and the whole Kazz crew were. Thanks to Kazz, my wedding was the best party I've ever been to, and I'm not the only one with that opinion." - Chris and Kerry
"We wanted to take a moment to thank you for helping to make our wedding the most special, magical, outrageously funky night of our lives. You guys blew us away with your utmost professionalism, enthusiasm, and pure talent. Our guests still talk about how much fun they had and how great you all were." - Annie and Chris
"You can tell that they love music and that they love playing together, which means a lot when it's your wedding." - Ariel and Naava
"They were so easy to work with and coordinated a lot of the details and flow of the wedding with the other vendors without us even having to ask. The week before the wedding was hectic, and Kazz was the only part of the wedding that we did not have to worry about. They were on top of everything and beyond prepared." - Kate and Whit

Wedding in Brooklyn, NY on 10/04/2013
"Kazz music orchestra is an absolute pleasure to work with. They were extremely flexible and helped me achieve our vision of having an all Motown/60s wedding. Joe was quick to answer his emails and detailed with his suggestions ans feedback. He was attentive to all of our needs and any changes that arose. We appreciated their professionalism, but even more, they are talented! What a group of performers; you can tell everyone is passionate about what they do. They kept the party going all night until midnight, and played our ceremony!! I've already recommended them to a friend's sister who will use them for their wedding, and would highly recommend them!"
- Jenna S.
Wedding in Hamilton, NY on 06/15/2013
"Joe was an absolute pleasure to work with - an unusual mix of extremely professional and on top of every detail, but also super friendly, personable, and easy going. I was absolutely thrilled when I found out that Kazz was available for our wedding date, especially since comparable bands seem to be quite a bit more expensive. What we really wanted at our wedding reception was a great dance party and that's exactly what we got. Kazz was AMAZING - the dance floor was completely packed the entire night, and everyone was RAVING about how great the band was. Multiple friends said that it was the best wedding band they had ever heard. We were in seventh heaven!! "

"We loved Kazz - they were absolutely amazing and I would highly recommend them to anyone considering them. They were great to work with in advance of the wedding and then wildly fun when they performed. They are fantastic! "

"Kazz Music Orchestra were simply the best. They were personable, professional, incredibly talented and were the hit of the wedding. The music they played had our guests up on their feet the whole time. They also had a wonderful vibe and Joe Kazz, the band leader, was an absolute pleasure to work with. I couldn't be happier with hiring this band! I would recommend them for a gig in a second - I know I sound cheesy but I'm just a delighted bride! :) They ROCKED! "
- Bronwyn S.
Wedding Reception in Ho Ho Kus, NJ on 08/04/2012
"We hired Kazz to play our wedding reception because they sounded great online, and they far exceeded all our expectations. They were great throughout the planning process (very organized, responsive, and flexible) and were committed to making sure our reception was fun for our guests. The bandleader even drove over an hour out of his way to see the venue and made recommendations to improve the party solely to our benefit. He arranged our song requests perfectly (even for our complicated first dance), and the band played amazing music all night. This is a group of people who just really enjoy playing great, soulful music together, and our guests couldn't stop dancing."
- Christopher Z.
Banquet in Utica, NY on 12/10/2011
Kazz' played at Utica College for the Black Student Union's 22nd Annual Kwanzaa Dinner. As President of this organization I wanted to blow away our audience, and by hiring Kazz Music Orchestra, I did just that.
Within minutes of playing, the musicians had everyone on the dance floor and grooving to songs even older than the students themselves! They grabbed the attention of the audience the entire night with oldies like “My Girl” by The Temptations and “Respect” by Aretha Franklin. From the singer, all the way down to the keyboards-very ELECTRIFYING and soulful.
We couldn't have asked for a better experience!
- Shanell F.
Wedding Reception in Easton, PA on 07/15/2011
"We were so lucky to have found Kazz. They were eager, professional, and hard working. They rehearsed new songs- very challenging songs for that matter- in just a few weeks before our wedding to give us exactly what we wanted. They brought such great energy for an array of different styles, and our guests couldn't get over how great they were. The country club said that out of all the weddings they've had- they've never heard a group like this. They delve into soul, rock, and 70s music to get your guests DANCING! For the amount of talent we got, the price was MORE than reasonable... In our opinion they should start charging more, SO BOOK THEM NOW before they do! :-)"
- Mary M.
Wedding Ceremony in Mamaroneck, NY on 09/09/2011
"I can't say enough about how professional, talented, accommodating, supportive, and caring Joe and the Kazz crew were during this entire process. Thanks to Kazz, my wedding was the best party I've ever been to -- and I'm not the only one with that opinion. Oh, and you've got to hear their version of "Let's Get It On." Pitch perfect!"
- Chris S.
Wedding Cocktail Hour in New York, NY on 07/16/2011
