THE ESSENTIALS

The Essentials are a classic jazz group, specializing in the soulful, sophisticated sound of Blue Note Records and rooted in the standards of the Great American Songbook. With our members' years of experience playing in clubs worldwide, degrees from the country's top jazz schools (Manhattan School, Berklee, and Calarts), and roots in LA's fertile jazz scene, The Essentials offer a combination of talent and professionalism to help make your event relaxed and fun from set-up to tear-down.

LIVE JAZZ FOR ANY OCCASION
The Essentials bring a uniquely stylish mood to your special event by performing an eclectic mix of Classic Jazz Standards, Bossa Nova and Swing in the style of such luminaries as Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, and Norah Jones. The band is a perfect fit for popular event themes such as Great Gatsby, Old Hollywood and Speakeasy Clubs. From a small duo to a full 5-piece band, we are flexible enough to fit any variety of situations, from a corporate event or wedding to a casual backyard party. We are happy to cater our repertoire to your specific event as well, whether that means performing a set of holiday tunes or jazz renditions of modern pop hits.

WEDDINGS
Whether you are planning your own wedding or using a professional planner, The Essentials will become a part of the planning process. We like to take the time to get to know you and help to put together your perfect day, for example, discussing and suggesting special song requests, helping to work with your time line, toasts and announcements, and most importantly making sure your wedding is a fun, relaxed, romantic and unforgettable experience for you and your guests.

EQUIPMENT
The Essentials are a totally self-contained band with our own sound system and pre-recorded background music during band breaks. We can provide a microphone for your speeches, toasts and announcements.

PARTNERS
- We work with a DJ group called Wild Dreams who specialize in 90s R&B/hiphop and dance classics from the 60s to today. They will pack your dance floor, guaranteed.
- We also work with a highly pedigreed and stylish String Trio/Quartet who will add a classical touch to your ceremony and mix in contemporary pop arrangements, as well.

Simone's voice will take you to a new level. The Essentials are great with or without vocals but Simone is definitely a cherry on top. They were a pleasure to work with and we were so happy we found them for our wedding. They were awesome at setting a romantic mood!
