"Artisan Jazz did a fantastic job at my sister's wedding. From start to finish, Kevin of Artisan Jazz was very prompt and professional in every correspondence. My sister wanted a classy lunch-time reception with no dancing, yet entertaining for her guests. That is exactly what Artisan Jazz delivered. The volume was perfect for conversation, their song choice was perfect for the occasion, and their personalities were enjoyable to watch. The band even honored a last minute request for a very special dance. We received countless compliments on the band, and I would highly recommend them!" -- Danielle M, Medina, OH, 8/18/2012
