"When I started doing my Client Appreciation Luncheons annually, I knew I had to keep everyone entertained with some good music. After I found the Double A Jazz band, I never had to look anywhere else. They play great jazz and provide an extra element of fun during their set. They are both creative and professional, and I would recommend them to anyone."

Anthony with Double A Jazz was the perfect choice for our small(ish) restaurant wedding. He was totally accommodating and patient with us as this was the first time we were hiring professional musicians. We even asked him to cue up a song at a very specific point in the ceremony and he nailed it! They created the perfect atmosphere and many of the guests said what a lovely addition the band was to our special day. On top of the fact that they are very skilled musicians, Anthony made sure all of our A/V needs were met. They went above and beyond! I am so grateful to Anthony and would hire him again in a heartbeat.
