Whether you're celebrating an anniversary, wedding, birthday or company corporate event or just need beautiful, sophisticated ballads, roaring Gatsby swing or intimate cocktail hour entertainment at your event, Jackie West and her Jazz Band provide the ultimate CLASSY and ELEGANT performances of the Great American Songbook (Gerswhin, Rogers and Hart, Cole Porter, Ellington, Berlin, etc) with some of your favorite jazz standards very few jazz units can imitate.

Jackie West and her Jazz Band (at the core a Jazz Trio (guitar, bass, vocalist), that can also expand into a larger unit easily with added drums, piano and horns) comprised of some of NYC's most talented, young jazz artists who swing and call to your heart strings.

Jacquelyn West was born to a family of musicians and surrounded by the croons and celebrations of jazz from an early age. Her uncle was drummer Ernie West--and her grandfather was a crooner. Her grandmother was a jazz dancer who frequently hosted Sarah Vaughn at her dinners. While she grew up listening to the rock n roll her father played, Jacquelyn was taken care of by her grandmother who exposed her to swing, bebop and the compositions of great cousin, Henry Mancini. Jacquelyn studied tap dancing and poetry, then turned to the microphone.

Jacquelyn brings a fascination to the spontaneous, collaborative aspects of jazz. She studied with master vocalists over the years and performance at the New York Jazz Academy. Her style is rooted in tradition, having spent time learning the blues in St. Louis, Missouri. Poets and musicians describe Jacquelyn's voice as "soft, honest, and playful with no maneuvers" and "like having a peppermint and a cigarette at the same time".

Bring elegance, charm and style to your event by adding great music and musicianship only Jackie West and her Band can provide.

I am seriously not one to give all 5’s however, Jackie West and her Jazz band were incredible. They performed at our wedding at Bryant Park on the roof for cocktail hour and they were incredible. They completely set the tone for an elegant wedding. Their manager Laurence was incredible and great to work with. The group made you feel like you were in another world like the roaring 20s. They really added the magic to our fantasy of a wedding at the Bryant Park Grill. Can’t wait to have another event to hire them and recommend them to others!!

Jackie West and Her Jazz Band were absolutely a delight. They performed in my backyard for a small family gathering for my husband’s 80th birthday. Everyone was enthralled with the music. Jackie has such a beautiful voice and the acoustic guitar and bass were perfection. I would definitely have them at my next celebration. I most highly recommend Jackie West and Her Jazz Band.
