Aland Music provides Florida's finest Violin/Guitar based ensembles as well as premiere event planning services. We have the experience and artistry to help you create the perfect ambiance for your wedding, private party, fundraiser, corporate and fashion event. Please visit our media/audio to see and hear for yourself. We are also proud supporters of marriage equality.

Proudly presenting Aland Music's premiere ensemble the Hot Club of SRQ Quartet.- "Reputably the most swinging, versatile and refined Gypsy Jazz ensemble in the South"(Mac Chrupcala). We play music that is deeply rooted in the style of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli. This music simply swings and is full of beauty and romance! We emulate the style of what the French call "Jazz Manouche" and "Le Jazz Hot" in the style of Sinti virtuosos and the "Quintette du Hot Club de France" circa 1934-1948. We have also have a trio and a duo version of this ensemble if your event requires a smaller footprint.

Each performer is absolutely proficient in classical as well as the jazz genre (this is not common). We draw inspiration from all cultures playing music from around the globe specializing in Rumba Flamenco, Gypsy Jazz, Bossanova, Samba, Tango, Afro Cuban and the American songbook.

We pride ourselves in working together as a team to assure that every client's needs are understood, recognized and exceeded during the performance.

As part of our event planning service we have the ability to arrange and create compositions that can be previewed by our clients.

Aland Music has a state of the art recording studio that can produce a professional quality keepsake in the form of an audio CD with your own images, logo, or photo! This makes for an impressive and thoughtful wedding gift.

I could not have been more pleased with Aland Music. They are very accomplished, and very talented. To top it off, they play with soul; they are not mere technicians. I highly recommend Aland Music.
