About the Band
Jazz Hands is Ben Wheeler (guitar), Edgar Haimerl (guitar), Traci Staffen (vocal) and Bonnie Birch (Accordion). We play Jazz Standards, Gypsy Jazz, Blues, Bossa Nova, and Latin Jazz.

Jazz Hands is a flexible concept and fits many different types of events and venues:
As guitar duo for small venues or parties.
With two guitars and accordion and/or vocals for small to mid size stages, e.g. fund raisers, wineries or restaurants.
As full band with two guitars, vocals, accordion and rhythm section for bigger venues and events.

About the Musicians
Ben Wheeler is a Seattle native who grew up in a musical family. He started playing guitar at age 10, focusing on classical guitar through high school and college. Alongside his 25 year career as a K-12 classroom teacher, administrator, and curriculum developer, Ben has played guitar professionally in a wide range of venues in Santa Barbara, California, and Seattle, Washington. Ben continues to perform both classical music and jazz, with an emphasis on gyspy jazz, bossa nova, and standards.
Bonnie Birch started accordion lessons at the age of seven and is an active professional accordionist in the Northwest. She plays many styles of music including Gypsy Jazz, Italian, French, German, and American Standards. She has received numerous awards over the years for her virtuosity.
Edgar Haimerl was born and raised in Regenburg-Germany (near Munich). He started playing guitar at high school. As a student in Freiburg he played electric guitar and bass in rock bands, dance bands and in a rock musical. Beside these regular gigs he played in a classical guitar duo. When he moved to Seattle with his family in 2004 he developed a growing love for Jazz music. He got involved in various Jazz bands, playing standards, latin and gypsy jazz on electric and acoustic guitars.

Jazz Hands were wonderful, they performed beautifully, acted professionally and brought a lot of energy to our event. The music was mellow enough to talk but lively enough to compliment the good time our guests were having! They were also, simply, nice people; we had a good conversation before the event started, and after. They were adaptable to our evening's "program piece" and pushed back their break to more effectively fit our timeline! I would absolutely hire them again!
