I hired the NM Jazztet to play my wife's surprise party. In short, they did awesome. Everybody at the party was totally impressed and LOVED the music. The band played tight, they gauged the crowd incredibly well and kept our party hopping. They played for 4 hours and everyone wanted them to play longer. Best part, I even got compliments from my neighbors :). They played on March 24th, which also happens to have been unseasonably hot (my yard got to 88 degrees) and sunny. They were under the sun, and rolled with it with no issue. I'd hire them again in a heartbeat. They were a great value for the talent and tunes and fun to work with!
