TRP plays lively jazz, blues, funk & classical music. Mesmerizing to watch, this unique quartet combines flute, cello, guitar & drums. Gorgeous compositions weave elements from around the world into up-tempo, high energy jazz and haunting sounds that flow from calypso to waltz feels. This very polished jazz quartet has evolved to become one of the most unique quartets in the world.
Although fairly new to Gigmasters, we have many years of experience, and are all full-time, professional musicians who love to play! We have played charity fund-raisers, outdoor concerts, concerts with symphony orchestras, jazz clubs, weddings, corporate events, casinos, birthday & anniversary parties, Holiday events, children's events, jazz festivals, coffee houses, TV shows, & more.
We can make your event special. We can play acoustically or "plugged in," from as quiet as a whisper to filling a large ballroom, concert hall or outdoor festival with sound. Our sound engages audiences of all ages & backgrounds.
We can perform as a solo, duo, trio, quartet, quintet & can add vocals when requested. We can play whole programs of jazz, classical, Irish/celtic or mix & match from our entire repertoire.
"Last month my family celebrated my father's 80th birthday with a surprise party which was, in actuality, a family reunion. The musical group of choice for the event was The Reese Project. The afternoon was a huge success and this was due, in no small part, to the performance of this skillful and energetic quartet. The Reese Project (TRP) played three hours of captivating instrumental Celtic songs and Big Band tunes, perfect for our Irish-American ocotogenarian. TRP's renditions of these popular genres were refreshingly unique and vibrant without overpowering the event; 50+ guests were able to hold conversations and socialize easily as they enjoyed the music.
These professional musicians also possess excellent organizational and planning skills; dealing with them was so easy! Tom Reese provided several websites which allowed me to conveniently listen to different samplings of the group's many musical genres (jazz, folk, blues, celtic, classical, funk and lots of original compositions) prior to hiring the group. Also, Tom and Laurie Haines Reese's positive attitudes, attention to detail and willingness to accomodate the client instilled a lot of confidence as I planned this important family event. It was a pleasure to work with The Reese Project. These are experienced, classically-trained musicians who get the job done with flair and fun."
