$600 - $6000 per event
The Jazz Lobsters have been tearing up the New Jersey shore for over 30 years at clubs, wedding receptions and parties, playing everything from the swingin' sounds of Count Basie and Frank Sinatra to Motown hits, reggae, dance favorites and rock classics. The size of the group varies from a duo to the full big band of 18 pieces and the size can be tailored to exactly your size and budgetary needs.
The band, led by James Lafferty, arranger and keyboardist, features his wife Audrey on saxes and clarinet and includes some of the hottest musicians in the tri-state area who have shared the stage and recorded with such artists as: Bruce Springstein, The Asbury Jukes, Billy Joel, Jimmy Buffet, Sam and Dave, Paul McCartney, Charles Earland, Blood Sweat and Tears, Tower of Power, Dido, Stan Kenton and Tommy Dorsey, Kool and the Gang to name a few. NOTE: We carry our own insurance policy, which is required by some venues.

Specializing weddings and private events, the Jazz Lobsters have backed up major acts and entertained at their parties. When members of Bon Jovi and Skid Row wanted their wedding receptions to jump, they called in The Jazz Lobsters to entertain.

With the ability to cover all styles of music from big band to funk, klezmer to rock, jazz standards to modern hits, why not call one of the hottest bands in the tri-state area to liven up your party or event?

The Jazz Lobster Party Unit was the perfect band for the occasion of my father's 90th birthday. I heard nothing but compliments all night long from the 20-somethings to the 90-somethings. Best of all, my dad was delighted. Fantastic job!

We had a 70th birthday celebration for our family and friends at our local synagogue. They played both traditional Jewish music (Horas) and also dance music and some really great rock. They all havs great voices, and several people remarked that the two women who played the sax and the trumpet, were both great singers as well as accomplished musicians. One nice thing, was that when the dinner was served they continued to play, but they played soft dance music. We also received many comments after from our friends about how great the Jazz Lobsters were. They got a lot of the folks up an on the dance floor. We were 100% satisfied with the Jazz Lobsters.
