There's a good reason they're the #1 jazz band in Texas. San Francisco born Hale Baskin and her Jazz Addiction live up to their name. They are addicted to exemplary musicianship, hip changes and deep grooves which enhance the vocal stylings of this talented young chanteuse.

Hale Baskin is endowed with a clear, beautiful voice, a sure sense of swing, and a seemingly innate sense of the nuances of Jazz phrasing. She moves effortlessly from channeling the stompin' swing of the 1920's, to evoking songbirds of the 1940's Big Bands, to Ella Fitzgerald-inspired Jazz favorites, all the way to Motown, soul, and down-home blues. Performing professionally for over 13 years, Hale has a bio which could be attributed to an entertainment veteran twice her age. By the time she had her nineteenth birthday, Hale was awarded three Down Beat Magazine Awards for Student Jazz performances, recorded two full length CD's, performed with such notables as Arturo Sandoval, the Count Basie Orchestra, and the Mike Vax Big Band, and led her own ensemble-- booking venues in four western states.

Hale is now offering her talent in Texas to anyone who wishes to make their event a guaranteed success. She has been booking with Gigmasters since 2006 and has always held a 5 star rating; clients rave about her performances. She works closely with each client to help find the right fit for their needs, from an intimate duo all the way up to a swingin' 18-piece BIG BAND. Hale and her band are a great choice for any venue/stage size, budget, or audience taste.

Want to kick the party into high gear? Hale's "Little Big Band" can do that too. The songs of Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Stevie Wonder, Tower Of Power, Al Green and other Soul and Motown hit makers are in our private reserve playlist. Looking for something in particular? Just ask!

Hale Baskin has a phenomenal voice and is backed up by a band of incredibly gifted musicians. The music which they provided was perfect for dancing, listening and as a background for conversation. Our guests of all ages enjoyed the style of music and were amazed by Hale's vocals. Hale prepared songs for our special dances, providing us with some of the sweetest, most tender moments of the day. If there were more stars on your review, we would rate this group off the charts. The band created the perfect atmosphere for our daughter's wedding and we feel so very blessed to have afforded this extraordinary group for her and our new son! Janet Cavagnolo
