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.
