We're so glad you're here. Five things to know about us:

1. We're friendly, flexible, top-shelf musicians who love the worldwide evolution of jazz in the 20th century. And who play like people in love.

2. We're not so much a jazz band as an emotional weather system. We're a party on Gatsby's lawn. We're a cobblestone street in Paris at dusk. We're a nightclub in Rio. We're the early hours of the morning in the French Quarter of New Orleans. We're a mood, an atmosphere, an experience.

3. We're here for you. We love talking with clients about styles and song lists. We know thousands of songs, and we're always eager to try new songs and new arrangements. We're also magically able to transform ourselves into different combinations, from a duo to a sextet—anything with guitar, piano, bass, drums, sax, trumpet, or vocals (plus clarinet, banjo, and accordion!).

4. We're aware that the name of our band isn't especially clever. The most accurate name for our band would probably be We Love Playing So Much, We Didn't Stop to Think of a Good Name for Our Band. But that seemed a little too complicated, so we went with the shorter option.

5. We were Gigmasters' 2016 Top Jazz Ensemble, we've won “Best of Gigmasters” awards three years in a row, and we've played with people like Herbie Hancock, Chaka Khan, and Ray Charles. But we don't play for likes, or ratings, or stars. We play for love, we play for lovers, and we'd love to play for you.

Can't say enough wonderful things about these guys. Not only do they have incredible raw talent when it comes to music, but their professionalism throughout the ENTIRE hiring process--from initial contract to event performance--was unparalleled. They consistently went out of their way to ensure that I had EXACTLY what I desired. Upon our request, Dan even transcribed the theme from Disney/Pixar's "UP" to play at our wedding ceremony. It was absolutely beautiful! I'd recommend Dan Martin to anyone in a heartbeat. A true class act, and the humblest group of musicians I've ever met. They'll give you a performance that will knock your socks off. Guaranteed.

If you do not hire Dan Martin for your party you are absolutely missing out! Dan was very professional and patient during the set-up process, putting-up with all of our requests and questions. I work for a very particular person and company, and everything needs to be perfect, and it really was for this event. The music was beautiful and couldn't have been more spot on for the type of party and the crowd. I will definitely use Dan Martin again! Thank you Dan & crew!!!

The music last night was just perfect. We had Dan's group play at the reception and dinner for our small and very intimate wedding. The musicians were talented, professional, courteous and friendly. Dan's responses in planning the event were punctual and helpful beyond what I expected. They followed the feeling of the evening, from quiet cocktail ambience at the beginning to some upbeat songs after our dinner. They included a few special unconventional requests, too. They were all set up and playing when we arrived. This may all sound overly positive, but that's just because things went so perfectly. (And even crazier is that they were the first group we contacted!)
