Choose The Bailsmen, New York's jazz band! We love working with brides and party planners to create the perfect event.

A little bit french bistro, New Orleans dance party, and New York sophistication. The Band draws from the inspiration of Django Reinhardt, Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, and Sidney Bechet. The Bailsmen jazz band has been packing dance floors with high-energy, vintage music since 2011.

We perform over 200 concerts and events a year at favorite New York venues The Rainbow Room, Gramercy Park Hotel, The Belfry, St. Mazie, and Radegast. Past clients include Vince Camuto, The Super Bowl, Conde Nast, New York Fashion Week, and The Huffington Post. Not to mention the many wonderful couples getting married and friends throwing private parties. We want to get your party started.

The Bailsmen were consummate professionals and the saviors of our wedding. When our first band cancelled unexpectedly, close to our date, The Bailsmen swooped in to save the day. And they absolutely killed it. From the vintage victrola horn used as megaphone to the thumping strums of the upright bass, the music sounded as good as it looked. We would recommend them highly to anyone considering a booking.

We asked The Bailsmen to come play at a small wedding party in Brooklyn. Every encounter we had with them up to the event, planning the party and on the day of the party was professional. They are accommodating and wonderful to work with. Beyond that, they play excellently and made our event even that much more special. I would highly recommend them without hesitation!

We hired the Bailsmen to perform at our wedding at the Museum of the Moving Image. From the initial contact to the night of the wedding, they were the friendliest, most accommodating, and thoroughly professional guys to work with. And the music! They were spectacular! Not a few people said that it was like having the best, most intimate French/gypsy hot jazz quintet in the world playing for you and your friends. And as a bonus, they are as handsome as they are talented. At the end of the evening, they asked to take pictures with us. What more could one possibly want at the end of a long day? :)
