Are you looking for top-quality live jazz for your wedding reception, office party, or special gathering? The Matt Dinsick Machine is a New York-based jazz band that is perfect for you, whether you're looking for world-class, improvised music worthy of a serious listening session or simply the best live, acoustic musical background. Unlike many other bands, we don't perform other kinds of music on our gig, like disco, rock & roll, or current pop tunes. Instead, we pull our inspiration from the great jazz combos of the 50s and 60s and our repertoire from the best jazz and latin-jazz standards. We believe jazz is one of America's greatest cultural institutions, and we're dedicated to preserving the spirit of group improvisation for audiences to enjoy.
No gig is ever treated the same way, because today is not yesterday, and neither one is tomorrow! Matt works closely with the client, whether scouting the performance space, selecting the tunes or working out the scheduling of the event. This ensures that each performance is unique, seamless and to the client's needs. Moreover, the members of the band are all up-and-coming young performers educated by some of the finest artist/teachers in the area and have years of professional experience, which guarantees music of the highest quality.
We don't really play weddings, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, engagement celebrations, family gatherings, office parties, corporate events or birthdays. We actually perform live jazz concerts that take place at those events. Our clients appreciate the fact that we play with spirit and soul, because as jazz musicians, we truly love what we do!
The core of our swingin' group is the trio of piano, double-bass and drums, and the full group adds tenor saxophone to make a quartet. As per client's wishes, we have also included trumpet and a female vocalist in the past, and we are always happy to perform in whatever format the client asks for, so if you have a special instrumentation you'd like to perform, just ask! We're also capable of performing in a wide variety of situations, so if you need us to provide, say, ceremonial music for your wedding ceremony followed by straight-ahead jazz for the reception, we can swing that!
Please contact Matt Dinsick today if you'd like rates or any other info about hiring us for a performance. You won't be disappointed!
