FEATURED IN EVENT SOLUTIONS MAGAZINE - "With a voice like Ella Fitzgerald and the looks of a speakeasy singer from the '30s, Katie Harris and her band provide the perfect combination of ambiance and entertainment for your event. . . the group focuses on classic jazz standards such as "At Last," "I've Got You Under My Skin" and "The Lady is a Tramp." Their musical styles make them the perfect act for social or corporate events of all sizes." -Aubrey Blankenship, Event Solutions

The Secret Jazz Band creates a vintage inspired atmosphere from a time when live music, style and elegance graced the dance floor. We are a perfect fit to compliment popular classic themes such as Great Gatsby, Old Hollywood, The Roaring 20's and the Speakeasy Jazz Clubs of the 30's, 40's and 50's. We love to dress the part and help to create the "Vibe!"

For your Corporate Event, Wedding or Casual Backyard Party, we play many styles of Jazz, Swing and Bossa Nova - a great combination for cocktails, dinner and dancing. From a small Duo to a 5 piece band, the band performs a variety of classic jazz standards in the style of such luminaries as Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, Louis Armstrong and Diana Krall.

With over 10 years' experience performing at weddings and private events, we enjoy the planning process and care that goes into every event. We are always happy to talk or email anytime to discuss any adjustments to make sure your special day runs smoothly. We love what we do - both before and during the event!

For the DIY Bride and Groom, we are more than just a band - we can also become a part of the planning. We like to take the time to get to know you. We can help to put together your perfect day, for example, discussing and suggesting special song requests, helping to work with your time line, toasts and announcements, and most importantly making sure your wedding is a fun, relaxed, romantic and unforgettable experience for you, your fiance and your guests!

The band provides it's own sound system, stage lights and background music during band breaks and a microphone for your speeches and announcements.

The band has been featured on the TLC television show I Found The Gown. Some of our clients include FOX Studios, Warner Bros. Studios, UCLA, Singularity University, IKEA, 3D Systems and Cooper-Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum. We have played at numerous well known venues including The Victorian (Santa Monica, CA), Calamegos Ranch (Malibu, CA), La Quinta Resort (La Quinta, CA), The Standard Hotel (Los Angeles, CA), The Mandarin Oriental (Las Vegas, NV), The Las Vegas Convention Center and Pier Sixty (New York City).

And finally, we hope the reviews speak for themselves. Here are just a few snippets from past clients.

Katie and the Secret Jazz Band were exactly what I was hoping for. Their music set the tone for beautiful evening. I had compliments on the music from folks in their 20's through their 80's. I was a little bit nervous to hire a band sight unseen from the internet, but from start to finish The Secret Jazz band met or exceeded my expectations. Katie was very clear and responsive in communicating with me and setting arrangements prior to the event. On the event night the band arrived very early, had everything they needed, and set up without complaint in our small backyard poolside location. This was an extremely worthwhile splurge that made my dad's birthday magical!

This review is long overdue! My husband and I got married in October 2014 and had an intimate 1920s wedding. We felt like a jazz band would be the perfect fit for the theme and the venue. From the very first contact with Katie, my husband and I felt completely comfortable and confident in her. We had special requests for our First Dance as well as the processional songs and they were very accommodating. Everything sounded perfect! Our guests as well as the event staff enjoyed the the Secret Jazz Band and gave us compliments on our selection many months after the wedding. Katie was also incredible in giving us recommendations on our timeline as well. :) Book them now!

The Secret Jazz Band was exceptionally professional and talented. I asked them to help me surprise my girlfriend when I proposed, and they made the experience truly unique and unforgettable. Katie is a true pleasure to work with - she was responsive, pleasant and committed from day one, as well as so easy to get in touch with. Every request was handled immediately and in a truly professional way. We look forward to having them perform at our wedding. Do not look anywhere else for a jazz band for your special occassions.
