We are a well-known, experienced vocal/instrumental duo featuring piano/organ keyboard and string bass. As we are conservatory educated AND jazz trained, we offer the unusual ability to offer BOTH traditional church music as well as cocktail hour/dinner music and CONCERT entertainment. Our classical pieces include:

Air on the “G” String (Suite No. 3) JS Bach
Theme from the “Moonlight Sonata” Beethoven
Largo from Xerxes Handel
Pachelbel’s Canon
Gymnopedie No.1 Satie
Arioso JS Bach
Prelude in “C” JS Bach
Wedding March Mendelssohn
Bridal March from “Lohengrin” Wagner
Minuet in “G Major” JS Bach
Selections from Anna Magdalena’s Notebook JS Bach
Variations on a Theme of Haydn Brahms

Many Others…..


As jazz/swing players, singers and entertainers, we DO swing, as attested by the following reviews of our performances and CD’s:


"The more exposure Lynne Jackson & Mike Palter get, the better for the world!" - Rex Reed, the New York Observer, NYC
"Like a fine, old wine, Lynne and Mike keep getting better and better. Steve Allen was so right when he said that no one else has ever done so much and with such warmth in singing these Gershwin songs. It is a gem!" - The Sun Sentinel, Ft. Lauderdale, Florida
“Lynne and Mike are simply the best!”-Arthur Friedman, the Boston Globe
“…Love is what Mike and Lynne invest in every note. Five stars." - George Fendel, MusicScene
“We could not have wished for anything more at our wedding. You guys were great!”-A. Beane, the Beane Wedding, Boston

"A memorable CD . . . endless enjoyment! I am so thrilled to have this landmark work of art. Your Gershwin concert is an oasis of classic beauty" - Phyllis Diller
". . . Among my very few favored singers. . . . Terrific singing and playing!" - Dave Frishberg
"The most striking vocal duo I have ever heard." Chuck Berg - National Association of Music Educators
“You brought so much extra joy to our wedding” –Holly & Cleveland Bell
“Barbara and I and our guests were thrilled by your music…”-E. Simches, the Simches Wedding
"There's a uncommon intimacy about the duo's performances, leaving one with the feeling of being serenaded in private." Mort Fega - The Palm Beach Post
". . . I love the way you both sing and the sensitivity you bring to your material." Burton Lane, composer (“Finian’s Rainbow”)
"Caviar!" The Hollywood Reporter
"They are an American resource . . . They are spellbinders." R.C. Smith - The Durham Morning Herald
“Both Lynne & Mike do something that many quite good singers have never in their entire lives been able to do…and that is to convey emotion, the heart-stopping, soul-lifting emotional message of the original work of art.”
-Steve Allen

It wasn't an option on the last page but Lynne and Mike provided music for our reception - not the ceremony. It was really perfect because we needed just the right musical ambiance for the room and for the mixed-age guests. People could dance to the romantic songs if they wanted to, or just sit back and enjoy the music. They provided a combination of romantic music plus upbeat standards. Definitely a great choice for any event where high quality entertainment is valued.
