Campbell's Jazz Soup performed at my wedding reception in August of 2017. I cannot say enough wonderful things about the band and about Brian Campbell, the band leader. Brian was incredibly communicative and professional, and worked with us to choose songs that would work for our reception. The band was also incredibly accommodating as the venue where we had our reception did not allow amplification of any kind. We received so many compliments from guests about how great the music was! When choosing a band, you can't get any better than Campbell's Jazz Soup!
According to your wishes and budget the band can perform with up to seven musicians. Our core trio is composed of leader Brian Campbell on clarinet, saxophone, and vocals accompanied by guitar and string bass. Trumpet or drums are added to the trio for our four musician band; trumpet and piano or drums are added to the trio for our five musician band; trumpet, piano, and drums are added to the trio for our six musician band; and trumpet, piano, drums, and trombone are added to the trio for our seven musician band. If you want to dance we suggest going with at least five musicians. And if you're interested in Dixieland in the New Orleans tradition with banjo and tuba, we can do that too (our last three audio samples demonstrate our Dixieland sound).
For close to two decades we've played many events throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond including weddings, festivals, parties, and corporate functions. Feel free to contact us for more info. Thanks for visiting and we hope to hear from you soon!
