$200 - $2000 per event
The Hard Coretet is a group of versatile musicians ready and willing to provide the music for a wide variety of settings. Whether you want entertaining and original modern jazz for a performance setting, relaxing renditions of standards to create ambience at your restaurant or corporate event, or lively swing to keep the guests at your wedding reception dancing, we are ready to work with you. We have an extensive repertoire that includes standards, jazz classics, modern jazz, latin jazz, funk and originals. We are also always more than happy to do our best to honor requests.

The Hard Coretet is lead by trumpeter Carson Wahl and guitarist Griffin Semple. Carson and Griffin began playing together as teenagers as members of the Virginia Music Adventures program. Through this organization, they were able to perform around the world, including the Dominican Republic, Turkey, Peru, Ecuador, Australia, throughout Europe, and on a Caribbean cruise.
Carson and Griffin both completed jazz studies degrees at Loyola University in New Orleans. Studying jazz and music composition in the city where jazz was born simultaneously connected them to the roots of jazz while inspiring them to explore possibilities for the future of jazz. Being in New Orleans also gave them the opportunity to play at numerous renowned venues in the french quarter and the prestigious New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival.
In addition to performing regularly in New Orleans and the D.C. area, Carson and Griffin also teach and inspire the next generation of musicians, instructing students of the Virginia Music Adventures program as well as teaching in various other capacities.

The Hard Coretet was AWESOME!! They were everything and MORE than we expected! From the beginning of the booking to the end of our event, they were nothing but professional! Griffin, the lead guitarist, worked with us from the onset and was very accommodating to our needs! He was open to all request and tried to make sure all requested music was learned and played at our event. Our guest raved at the level of expertise in the sound and skill! The entire trio was warm and inviting! They interacted with the guest and made everyone feel "right at home"! We will DEFINITELY use them again and again in the future! Don't miss out on this group....AMAZING!! Derek & Kelly

The Hard Coretet was absolutely fabulous! They played a very nice selection of jazz for my Sunday Brunch. The music was a soothing backdrop to all of the guests in attendance. I would call them again to perform at another event I would have. They made my event that much more memorable. Received a lot of favorable compliments of The Hard Coretet and wish them much success!!!

I hired the Hard Coretet to play at a fundraiser I held at my home. They were absolutely amazing. The arrived on time and actually started playing early as we were setting up. Because we had a series of presentations and speakers, the group needed to play small sessions. They were very accomodating. This is a group of very talented musicians. Their playlist was long and very flexible -- they took requests. Their professionalism impressed all of us. I would without question hire them for another event of any type. Very, very highly recommend!
