Hella Fitzgerald provides the perfect musical touch. From Gatsby to Rat Pack and Motown to Modern, we work closely with clients to customize the perfect musical backdrop for any event. Drawing from diverse musical experiences, their repertoire vintage Swing & Jazz, classic Motown soul and R&B, and of course, 90's up to contemporary Top 40 radio hits. The band size is flexible to rock the best dance parties and also able to support mellow intimate events. Hella Fitzgerald will work with you to support your venue size, budget, and musical tastes creating a special and memorable event. Consisting of some of the most accomplished and professional musicians in the area, we are available for weddings, parties, and corporate events.

DANCE & RECEPTION
The full band features female vocals, two horns, guitar, keyboards, upright bass, and drums. The band is able to adjust larger or smaller including male vocals to fit your musical vision, budget, and space. With our experience and sensitivity to details, we support you and your special event so you can relax and enjoy your moment.

We begin our dance sets with upbeat Speakeasy jazz and swing with New Orleans style jazz, followed by Classic Soul/Funk/R&B, and finishing off the night with more current 90's and contemporary Top 40 songs. Hella Fitzgerald is happy to accommodate requests. We can learn specific versions of songs as well (for choreographed dances, special dances).


CEREMONY
Our versatile musicians can provide anything from traditional classical piano or guitar selections, to mainstream choices with or without vocals. We recommend a small combo for this setting. A wireless and lapel microphone, and speaker system are available.

DJ DUTIES
A customized iPod playlist is provided for the breaks so the musical flow of your event is never interrupted.  We can expand DJ duties to continue after the live music portion if noise ordinances are in effect.

EMCEE DUTIES
We can provide emcee duties to facilitate the announcement of speeches, toasts, and other events throughout the evening such as cake cutting, bouquet/garter toss, and transportation announcements (shuttles, etc). Our wireless microphone and speaker system can be made available to you and your guests for announcements, toasts, and speeches as well.
