The Creswell Club is a constellation of musicians who specialize in music that makes life better. We're rooted in jazz standards and music from the 1920s and 30s, but we're experts at branching out; we can play everything from swing to bossa nova, Motown to the Rat Pack, Edith Piaf to Lana Del Rey. We play hard, we dress well, and we look like we're having a blast (because we are!).

We're here for you. We love talking with clients about styles and song lists. We know thousands of songs, and we're always eager to try new songs and new arrangements. We can be anything from a duo to a septet—and, because several of our members are multi-instrumentalists, we offer guitar, piano, bass, drums, sax, trumpet, clarinet, banjo, accordion, and vocals.

Members of The Creswell Club have played with the most celebrated names in modern jazz (and beyond), including Herbie Hancock, Dave Brubeck, Chaka Khan, and Ray Charles. We were Gigmasters' 2016 and 2017 Top Jazz Ensemble, and we've won "Best of Gigmasters" awards four years in a row. But none of this matters when we're playing together. When we're playing together, what matters is the music. What matters is the mood. What matters is the moment we're all sharing together—you, us, and the people in the room.

If you're planning an event, we'd love to hear from you. Contact our bandleader, Dan Martin, and let's talk about what's possible.

We received so many compliments at our wedding regarding Dan Martin’s band. In fact, a cousin with extra extensive experience booking live entertainment for clubs/restaurants told us that this was the best band he’s ever heard. We loved all of the song options available to us and they even learned a few extras. Dan was incredibly professional and always responded to any questions we had nearly immediately. He also coordinated a few last minute changes we requested to add two additional musicians for our reception. We would highly recommend them!

Can't say enough wonderful things about these guys. Not only do they have incredible raw talent when it comes to music, but their professionalism throughout the ENTIRE hiring process--from initial contract to event performance--was unparalleled. They consistently went out of their way to ensure that I had EXACTLY what I desired. Upon our request, Dan even transcribed the theme from Disney/Pixar's "UP" to play at our wedding ceremony. It was absolutely beautiful! I'd recommend Dan Martin to anyone in a heartbeat. A true class act, and the humblest group of musicians I've ever met. They'll give you a performance that will knock your socks off. Guaranteed.

If you do not hire Dan Martin for your party you are absolutely missing out! Dan was very professional and patient during the set-up process, putting-up with all of our requests and questions. I work for a very particular person and company, and everything needs to be perfect, and it really was for this event. The music was beautiful and couldn't have been more spot on for the type of party and the crowd. I will definitely use Dan Martin again! Thank you Dan & crew!!!
