Born out of the recession in 2009, The Recessionals Jazz Band began as a band of buskers in Washington Square Park where they cut their teeth playing hot and sweet jazz for the big apple. It was there in the park where they learned how to win over audiences and build their own performing style as a band, before moving on to audiences all over the east coast. Their album, Go For Broke, showcases the band playing classics jazz standards, gospel hymms, and fresh tunes inspired by the greats. The 7-piece band features three stylish vocalists, backed by a young energetic ensemble of rising stars in the jazz world.

The band has opened for Aretha Franklin, and Michael Bolton and has performed at some of the most prestigious jazz haunts such as The Blue Note in New York Cit, Boston Swing Central, and the Louis Armstrong's House in Corona, Queens, NYC in the summer of 2010. The Band can be seen performing frequently in New York City as venues such as Radagast Biergarten, and Antibes Bistro.

Through working for agencies such as First Choice Musicians (created by Musicians Local 802 featuring some of the most established of New York City's professional musicians) The Recessionals have developed a reputation for delivering high-energy performances at some of New York City's most prestigious venues. Notable performances include:Waldorf Astoria opening for Aretha Franklin (2015) and Michael Bolton (2014), The Blue Note, Roosevelt Island, the Yale Club, and Lincoln Center. The band has been ranked in the top ten of the highest grossing jazz bands in New York City by Gigmasters (2013 and 2014), in addition to receiving their "Best of 2013" award.

We hired the Recessionals for our wedding and they rocked it! They played a total of 4 hours including cocktail hour and reception. All the guests danced, from my 3 year old niece to our older guests. We did the limbo and a congo line, and when it was over, everyone screamed for one more song. The Recessional obliged. The horn players came out to play on the dance floor with us which everyone loved. They even learned the song "All About That Bass" by Meghan Trainor a week before the wedding for me. All night we had guests asking us who they were and where we found them. I could not say better things about these guys and how happy I am. Highly recommend!!!

We hired The Recessionals for our wedding in Boston, and could not have been happier. Everyone had an amazing time, they kept us all dancin all night long, and we were so grateful to them for the amazing tone they set for out wedding. Working with them the months before was so easy-I always heard from them in a timely manner and they were very accommodating. We would definitely hire them again an would recommend anyone else hire them too!
