Do you love the Jazz Standards, the Great American Songbook, the fabulous, danceable tunes from the 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s? From the Gershwins and Irving Berlin, Jerome Kern, Lorenz & Hart, to the great Cole Porter - we bring them all and make you feel like Fred & Ginger.
Or do you dig the cooler repertoire? Charlie Parker, mysterious Thelonious Monk, Miles Davis, zany Eddie Jeffersion and Jon Hendricks vocalese? Here's to the Ladies Who Scat! is one of our themes.
Go all the way back to the Roaring Twenties, with our Great Gatsby Party, perfect with the whole quintet.

We like to tailor our 300+ repertoire around your event needs, from cocktail hour, to corporate event, from a fundraising gala, to family celebrations.
Duo, trio, quartet, quintet or more: vocals, piano/guitar, bass, drums, sax, clarinet.

As an educational, high-energy fun offering, we also have our 'BOP GOES THE WEASEL - JAZZ FOR KIDS' best suited for pre-school through grade-school ages.

We thoroughly enjoyed the entertainment Ms Drapkin and her accompanists (guitarist and bassist) provided for a 60th birthday party. They were so accommodating with our request and even agreed to have a duet with one of the guests. Their rendition of songs from different genre- great american songbook, samba, bossa nova truly made the night quite memorable. Thanks again! Highly recommended!

We hired Chris for our wedding reception. Everyone loved them! Chris was very responsive to our particular needs and took the worrying out of the process. Highly recommend!

Chris Drapkin Jazz’s Response:

Thank you, Lawren, for your lovely feedback. It was a pleasure working with you, and helping shape the celebration: -- having our guitarist play classical selections for your ceremony in the gazebo; -- working up that moving Dionne Warwick song that your guest could sing it during the reception. -- And, hey, you made me learn some really fun 1970s tunes (that everyone in my band knew except me). Always an extra kick to try and bring in those extra little touches. Thanks for having us play for your wedding! Christiana

The group was wonderful from the time that we contracted with them to their performance at our fundraising gala. Christiana has a lovely, warm voice and she did a beautiful job performing a wide selection of music from the 1920's, 30's and 40's. If we have need, we would hire them again!
