The James Zeller Trio are known for their elegance, class, foot tapping swing and most of all for the magic they bring to a party. Featuring the unique, heartfelt vocals of leader/trombonist James Zeller, the trio draws their inspiration from the great American Songbook and the swinging jazz music of the 1920's, 30's and 40's.
Their repertoire ranges from 1920's to the 50's, from Dixieland Jazz in the style of Louis Armstrong to classic songs by legendary crooners like Frank Sinatra and Nat King Cole. They can perform subtle, romantic music or get a party started with high energy classic swing. They can also perform R&B and pop hits from Sam Cooke to The Beatles when called upon. When you hire the James Zeller Trio, rest assured you are choosing a band that and takes great pride and enjoyment in their work.
The trio also performs as a quintet and even larger ensemble. Please see the "James Zeller Quintet" on Gigmasters!
