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.
