Dear Prospective Client,

The Rhythm Section Jazz Band is an extremely versatile jazz orchestra. From classic jazz to pop-rock, our song selection consists of over 6,500 tunes from the Paul Sherwood arrangement Library.

We have worked very hard to put together 'books' of different styles of music to give our clients more choices. We can choose our favorite songs to best fit your event or you can help us choose your favorites.

1. Swing is our speciality.

2. But, if we pull out the 'pop rock book' then get ready to rock, because we play over 150 songs from the 1960's, 70's and 80's.

3. If Dance is your thing, then, let us bounce, jump, fox trot, mambo, rhumba, tango, conga, cha-cha, samba, stomp, swing and waltz your group to nirvana.

The Rhythm Section Jazz Band core is a 10 piece 'Little Big Band' and consists of 1st sax alto/clarinet, 2nd sax tenor/clarinet, 3rd sax alto/soprano, trombone, trumpet, piano, guitar, bass, drums and vocalist.

If you prefer, we also play as a full big band with 5 saxes, 4 trombones, 4 trumpets and full rhythm section (piano, guitar, bass and drums).

Or, we break down to any smaller size combo if space or budget are tight. Our pianist is available to play earlier for cocktails and dinner or the whole night if that's all you need.

We, also, perform as a post bop quartet with saxophone, piano, bass, and drums. Add a vocalist?

If you need a studio band, recording sessions are our bread and butter.

We can provide a pit orchestra for your next play, on or off Broadway.

TRS has a commitment to excellence and professionalism that assures a successful outcome for your event's entertainment. Not only are the musicians top notch, but, our crew sets up the band well advance of the musicians' arrival. The PA equipment that we travel with is of the finest quality and our people are the nicest in the industry.

Thank you for looking and we look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

Paul Sherwood, band leader

We were so pleased with the Rhythm Section Jazz Band. Their talent level is amazing, and they were very accommodating to our needs and requests. The pianist even learned an accompaniment for our ceremony without the aid of sheet music. They set the tone for our whole evening. We got tons of compliments on their performance, and would definitely recommend them for any event.
