Since playing his first professional jazz gig at the age of 15, saxophonist Trent Harris has been sharing his passion for jazz with audiences for over 25 years. Trent offers instrumental jazz throughout Michigan in small groups that sound and look great for any type of event. Whether you seek jazz as a subtle sonic backdrop for your guests' enjoyment, or whether you seek jazz as a concert where the music takes center stage and the musicians command the room's attention, Trent and his fellow musicians can deliver.

Over the years Trent has played hundreds of professional gigs ranging from restaurant and club dates, to birthday and anniversary parties, to corporate evens, to weddings, to funerals, and all things in between. Also, Trent has developed great working relationships with a wide network of great jazz musicians in cities across the State of Michigan. So When you book a jazz group with Trent Harris, you get:
- music tailored to the mood of your event, and that constantly adapts the playlist and volume of the music to keep the energy level just right throughout your event
- top-notch professional jazz musicians who have spent a lifetime honing their craft
- responsive communication before, during, and after the gig
- a group that you can be confident will show up early, and starts and ends on schedule
- musicians who show up looking sharp, who conduct themselves with class and professionalism, and who reflect positively on you and your event

Trent Harris and his group did a fabulous job playing at our wedding reception. We received many compliments from our guest on the Jazz Qaurtet.

This was the third summer we have had Trent Harris bring his group to our Concerts on the Grass series. This time we had people come out specifically to hear them, giving us a core group for the whole concert. Other people dropped in for a while and left. There were several requests for favorite songs, and the trio obliged with exceptional performances. They always do more than asked and are easy to work with. I plan to have them back again!

The Trent Harris Quartet played for Ella's Patio Party on 5/28/2015. They were wonderful, and our guests really enjoyed them. Definitely a group of very talented, professional musicians. They will be playing for us again in 2016, and hopefully throughout the coming years! Donna Riley, Director of Membership & Development at Ella Sharp Museum
