They made my party swing!! I hired Hot Club of Flatbush to play at my 40p cocktail/birthday party in Manhattan. We had an ensemble of five players and they were fabulous. They truly delight in playing this music, a mix of gypsy jazz and standards, and my guests loved them! From the booking date to the event, Jayson was a pleasure to deal with. They really MADE the party, as evidenced by the rapt attention they got and did I mention - the dancing!! I even wish I had hired them for longer. You won't go wrong with these talented musicians and I highly recommend them!!
Birthday Party (Adult)
Hot Club of Flatbush was the finishing touch to the rehearsal dinner making it a memorable event- they were perfect for our venue and added a worldly sophistication. Talented, personable, attractive and expertly professional and able to handle any situation with ease and grace. Highly recommend them-they will "make" your event a huge success.
I can't speak highly enough of the Hot Club of Flatbush. The were classy and professional. Jayson was professional from the very first meeting. I asked if they could learn the song "Only You" by Yaz for our first dance which is outside of the Jazz genre and it sounded wonderful. My guests all commented on how elegant the band looked and sounded. I couldn't have asked for a better music arrangement. Thank you Hot Club of Flatbush for helping to make our wedding such a memorable event!
Hot Club of Flatbush was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. They are so talented and professional. Jay was very accommodating to our individual requests throughout the months leading to the day and put us at ease with his prompt responses and optimistic character. We could not have hoped for better communication or for a better delivery. Our friends and family were so impressed with the band---the music, the sound quality, their look and composure made the night feel magical. We are so grateful to the band!
The Hot Club of Flatbush was amazing! Jayson was easy to communicate with in the planning stages, and the band checked in with us and set everything up quickly and professionally.They were also extremely accommodating with all of our requests: we had an instrumental trio for our ceremony, a quartet + singer for the cocktail hour, they played a beautiful instrumental arrangement of "Here Comes the Sun" for our processional, and they even provided an extra microphone so we could make announcements. We got so many compliments on their music, and couldn't be happier with the choice to book them!
Perfect wedding band! These guys were everything and more! Such a great attitude and I got compliments all night about how great the band was. As a musician myself I am picky and these guys knocked it out of the park. Highly recommended! Also generally you should buy their albums on iTunes and go see their shows!
HCOF was essential in creating the New Orleans jazz vibe we wanted for our event. Especially the cocktail hour. Guests loved them.
HCOF performed at my wedding during the ceremony, cocktail hour and a portion of the reception. They were incredibly flexible, professional and pleasant to work with. Most importantly, HCOF are incredible musicians. Aside from their normal repertoire, they also prepared an arrangement of a song I requested that they had not played. The arrangement that they ended up playing was one of the best I had ever heard. I would highly recommend working with Hot Club of Flatbush.
Wedding Cocktail Hour
Ben Swan,the leader of The Hot Club Of Flatbush,is the consummate professional.The ensemble's level of musicianship and repertoire is second to none. Ben is also very easy to work with. I expected a lot in terms of performance and The Hot Club Of Flatbush exceeded my expectations. My guests,some of whom are musicians like myself,enjoyed the total Gypsy Jazz vibe.As one guest stated : "I could have listened to them play all night!" In short, Ben Swan and The Hot Club Of Flatbush are"top shelf" all the way. James Brennan.
The Hotclub of Flatbush was AMAZING! They are a very talented 5 piece band that we hired for our wedding at The Pocketbook Factory in Hudson, NY. They really set the tone for the evening - our guests we blown away by the music!
