My husband and I hired Connecticut Jazz Events' Saxophone / Piano duo to play at the cocktail hour, and we were shocked how great they were! Seriously - these guys can really play! All the guests commented on how great the music was. Highly recommended!

We hired Connecticut Jazz Events for the dinner at our wedding and we couldn't have been happier with the music! The music was elegant, classy, swinging, and sounded great! They really helped the dinner hour come alive and become "boring".

The jazz music that Connecticut Jazz Events provided really made my wedding. We hired them to play for the cocktail hour and the dinner hour. The music was spectacular! I heard compliments from guests all night about how nice the music was. They can even take requests for popular jazz standards on the fly. I can't recommend them enough!

We had a jazz trio (sax, guitar, bass) for our recent wedding and I have one word- amazing. The music was the perfect blend of jazz that guests could both dance to or just sit and enjoy- everyone from the little kids to the grandparents generation was enjoying listening to the music and most people danced for a little bit! They worked their breaks around reception events, and were easy to coordinate with. Our guests are still complimenting us for the quality of the music they provided and we loved every minute they were playing! I would highly recommend the jazz trio to anyone looking for a combination of background and low-key dancing, they are extremely talented and provide very high quality jazz music.
