The Revisionists specialize in American jazz traditions with original songs and arrangements inspired by all your favorites--from Billie Holiday and Duke Ellington to Lionel Hampton and Louis Prima. Whatever you need, we're here to deliver; whether that's beautiful cocktail-hour ambiance or music that will inspire an active dance floor.

We regularly perform at large private events for corporate galas and award ceremonies, held in such places as Hudson Yards in New York City, The Ritz-Carlton in D.C., and the American Swedish Historical Museum in Philadelphia; as well as intimate celebrations like weddings and birthdays; plus, special events like the New York Transit Museum's annual Subway Swing festival.

By request, the ensemble can be customized to meet your specific needs. Our standard 7-piece band includes both Female & Male Vocals, a dynamite horn section (Trumpet, Alto Saxophone/Clarinet, Trombone), and a driving rhythm section (Piano, Upright Bass Drums). Depending on your needs, we can perform as a light, acoustic trio or and even as an authentic 17-piece big band!

Let us know if you're looking for Gatsby-esque party music, timeless melodies from the Great American Songbook, traditional or New Orleans-style jazz, a group of incredible dancers, or anything else! We love playing all styles of American jazz.

If you would like to hear us live we frequently perform at several venues around New York City, including The Django in Tribeca, Hofbrau Bierhaus near Grand Central Station, and The Lexington Hotel in midtown. Reach out to find out where you can hear us live!

Why the Revisionists?

1. Professional: easy to work with, friendly, prepared to meet your needs
2. Ready to entertain: whether you want gentle background music, high-energy brass sound, or even interactive dance lessons for your guests
3. Built-in emcee: if you need someone to make announcements, or simply use our speakers to amplify speeches
4. Quality: full-time professional musicians at the top of their field, each member holds a degree in music performance
5. Affordable: Customize the band size to accommodate your budget and vision

We hired The Revisionists to perform as guests arrived at our wedding and then again at our cocktail hour after the ceremony. They arrived and set up promptly and looked the part-very dapper boys! They were all incrediblely talented on each of their respective instruments and it was clear to see that music is a life-long passion for all of them. Our guests absolutely loved them and they brought the party! Great communication in the run-up to the wedding and made the day incrediblely fun and stylish. Thanks again to you all

This band is AMAZING!!! If you are looking for something cool, classic, elegant and hip for your special day this is your band. These are some of the finest young jazz musicians around. Their rep list is filled with all of the classic Jazz standards as well as all of the Great American Songbook favorites. Every single person at our wedding raved about them and said "This was the best wedding band they had EVER heard!" They do not play contemporary American pop music but their elegant and timeless repertoire was absolute perfection for our event. Danny their band leaders is easy to work with and very accommodating. If we could give them a 10 star rating we would!!!!!!
