I hired Julie and the Kensie Jazz band for my wedding that just passed on May 20th 2017. they were incredible! I had them located out in the foyer where guest entered. it brought class and sophistication to the wedding. guests were enjoying the performance while in the receiving line and I received a lot of great feedback from guests at the end of the night. I would highly r commend them. I know I searched a lot of bands when looking and what sold me on Julie and the Kensie band was the audio you can listen to online. Julie also was amazing with communication! Any question or email she would respond back to me within the hour.

I hired the Kensie Jazz Ensemble to play for our store opening party. With the intention of this celebration to create an elegant, yet fun atmosphere -they could not have been more perfect! They were easy and quick to communicate with beforehand, were on time, professional, and best of all, a wonderful group of incredibly talented musicians, with Julie's rich, sultry, seamless vocals setting the perfect tone for the evening. Our guests loved them! I would certainly hire the Kensie Jazz Ensemble for future events, and highly recommend this group!

Julie and her band were simply amazing! I have no words to describe the wonderful performance they gave. Our guests were delighted, and most important - my wife (birthday girl) was on cloud #9. Every aspect of working with Julie was flawless, and when it came to the performance itself, she was fantastic. Beautiful voice, great selection of songs, fantastic delivery - THANK YOU JULIE & BAND! I would strongly recommend the Kensie Jazz Band and I am certain you will not be disappointed. Tal Vilenski
