JFK Jazz is a premier jazz combo based in the Washington, DC area, offering musical entertainment to make your special event even more special.
From intimate private functions to concerts at some of the largest venues in and around Washington, our performances have entertained audiences of all kinds. We match unbeatable talent with hassles-free professionalism to help you create a memorable event, no matter how large or small, formal or informal.
JFK Jazz is a trio of Bobby Jasinski (piano), Ethan Foote (bass), and Jason Kelly (drums). The group has been performing for several years and boasts a broad repertoire of classic standards, jazz favorites, popular hits, and more. We tailor our performance to meet your needs. Your event may call for something lively or something more laid-back, uptempo numbers or relaxed balladry, music for dancing or for dining, or some combination of these. We do it all. We'll also happily accommodate virtually any stylistic preference--swing, bop, Latin, funk--you name it. While JFK regularly performs as a trio, your event may require a bigger band and different sounds, which is why we regularly work with outstanding vocalists, saxophonists, trumpeters, guitarists, and others. Whatever it is you like, we've got it covered.
The members of JFK jazz have performed at Blues Alley, Twins Jazz, The Kennedy Center, The Howard Theater, Arena Stage, The Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center, Artisphere, The Mansion at Strathmore, The Newseum, The Ronald Reagan Building, The Embassy of France, The Mansion on O Street, Meridian House, and many other venues and event spaces.
Please let us know how we can help you put on an outstanding event!
