The sound of Perseverance Jazz Band brings back the dimly lit speakeasies of the roaring 1920s and crackling gramophones playing long-forgotten 78's. In their hot rhythms and sweet melodies, you'll find the glamor, mystery, and excitement of the Jazz Age, the era of Prohibition and the setting of The Great Gatsby.

Known to grip their audience from beginning to end, Perseverance Jazz Band gives a memorable performance every time. When not touring, they play swing dances, clubs, and private events in and near Philadelphia.

Perseverance brings the sound of New Orleans everywhere they go, by way of 1920's and 30's Hot Jazz, Ragtime, Dixieland, and Second Line tunes. The band ranges in size from three to ten musicians and plays weddings, proposals, New Orleans-style funerals, and everything between. They specialize in leading New Orleans Second Line processions.

Perseverance's new album 'Hard Times Come Again No More' can be found at www.perseverancejazzband.bandcamp.com!

Overall they are a very talented group, and their leader was very accommodating for our requests and changes. They were definitely a great addition to our wedding. They did begin to pack up while there were guests still in the room so that was a little off-putting. I used to work weddings as well, and we always waited until all guests had cleared out of the space. However, that is a very small detail in the grand scheme. Their music was incredible and perfect for our event.

Ultimately, the music was AMAZING AMAZING But, the lead-up to the wedding, and a hindsight review of the band is very disappointing. The bandleader (and reason we chose the band in the first place) quit about 6 weeks before our wedding. The new bandleader was slow to contact us, not as thorough in communication, and ignored one of our guaranteed requests. The band showed up late on the wedding day, shortened the Klezmer medley for the Hora, didn't even play one of our requests (and we only got a handful of requests), played an unrecognizable version of our first dance, and then left town without staying in the hotel rooms we contractually booked and payed for them.

Perseverance Jazz Band’s Response:

We are glad that Sarah points out that the music was amazing and are very sorry that she felt disappointed. We feel that it is unfair of Sarah to complain about the hotel rooms, as it was contractually agreed upon that Sarah would pay for the rooms, so that they would be available if we needed them. We respectfully disagree with the rest of her complaints- they do not reflect our experience of what happened.

The band was great, everyone loved them! I pretty much told them to play whatever they wanted instead of having special request and I am glad I did, they did an amazing job. They really made our 1920's wedding great!
