We're so glad you're here. Five things to know about us:

1. We're friendly, flexible, top-shelf musicians who love the worldwide evolution of jazz in the 20th century. And who play like people in love.

2. We're not so much a jazz band as an emotional weather system. We're a party on Gatsby's lawn. We're a cobblestone street in Paris at dusk. We're a nightclub in Rio. We're the early hours of the morning in the French Quarter of New Orleans. We're a mood, an atmosphere, an experience.

3. 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're also magically able to transform ourselves into different combinations, from a duo to a sextet—anything with guitar, piano, bass, drums, sax, trumpet, or vocals (plus clarinet, banjo, and accordion!).

4. We're aware that the name of our band isn't especially clever. The most accurate name for our band would probably be We Love Playing So Much, We Didn't Stop to Think of a Good Name for Our Band. But that seemed a little too complicated, so we went with the shorter option.

5. We were Gigmasters' 2016 Top Jazz Ensemble, we've won “Best of Gigmasters” awards three years in a row, and we've played with people like Herbie Hancock, Chaka Khan, and Ray Charles. But we don't play for likes, or ratings, or stars. We play for love, we play for lovers, and we'd love to play for you.

Dan Martin and his band is, quite simply put, the best. Not only are they reasonably priced, but their level of professionalism is off the charts. Almost every guest at our wedding came up to me to tell me how amazing the band was. Wonderful music! It sounds like they just hopped off a studio recording. A great range, they can play everything from Dixieland Jazz to the Beatles! Amazingly accommodating, I cannot recommend them enough. Awesome communication, Dan Martin always got back to me immediately if I had a question or concern. If you are looking for a jazz band to play your event, hire Dan Martin and his band. They are the best. Thank you, Dan Martin!

The Dan Martin Trio was just the right group for our dinner party. Dan was most responsive to my requests even though I booked them less than two weeks to the event. Their music playing was terrific my family did not stop raving about them. I would recommend them highly. Sit back and enjoy. They definitely added the great mood for our celebration.

Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! Beautiful music. All our guests raved about Dan Martin and his band and asked where we found him/them. Incredibly professional and easy to deal with. Flexible and friendly too. They arrived early and were set up and ready to play before we even arrived. Would hire again and again. Thank you so much for making our special night even more special. Love Bill and Maria.
