We are Savi & the Hot Toddies! We're a little sweet, a little spicy, and we'll make you feel real good!
If you are looking for a classy band to liven up your cocktail party, gala, or main stage event, you've come to the right place! Whether you like traditional jazz standards, or you want a more contemporary flare, we are able to provide a great sound and a polished look. We specialize in music from the 20's through the early 50's, popularized by the greats like Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Louie Armstrong, and Billy Holiday. Our repertoire includes songs like "I've Got You Under My Skin", "Fly Me to the Moon" and "All of Me". We also have a lot of fun taking indie, pop and rock songs and recreating them to fit our style...tunes like "Riptide", "No Rain", "Back to Black" and "All About That Bass".
This is a band that can morph to fit your every need. Our normal group consists of vocals, piano, upright bass, and drums, but if you want different instrumentation feel free to ask. We have lots of friends who are as great as we are!
For a small fee, we also have the ability to provide an entire sound system for your event, so don't worry that you'll have to rent a system, or be held in to a venue that has one. Just be sure to let us know you need one.
Whatever your needs, we are here for you! Feel free to call and chat about a gig, and we'll work with you to make your event the best it can be!
