In 1985, a young man named Adam picked up an alto saxophone and began playing one note at a time. Soon those notes became songs and the songs turned to solos. Almost 30 years later, that young (well not so young anymore) man is now leading the SMS Jazz Project with the help of his father, Stan, on keyboards. Father and son bring over 50 years of gigging experience from weddings, nightclubs, bars, colleges, festivals, bar-mitzvahs, parades, corporate events, birthdays and pretty much any event that has music.

Specializing in the sounds of cocktail hour jazz, the SMS Jazz Project can take your event to the next level with a smooth but classy blend of standards and hard bop jazz. Performing works by Herbie Hancock, Sonny Rollins, Horace Silver, John Coltrane and more, the Project can liven up any occasion and add a touch of class. Ask us about any songs you’d love to hear, we’ll make it happen!

We also offer wedding ceremony music with solo piano/keyboard or as a duo with piano and sax/flute.

Based in the Boston area, the Project is available for weddings, cocktail parties, birthdays, and any celebration you could imagine!

Reasonable rates. Package deals for ceremony and cocktail hour. Email or call us for a quote. Read less

SMS Jazz project played for our ceremony and cocktail hour. They were great to work with and were very responsive leading up to the wedding. They were open to our ideas and suggestions. They added a magical element to our ceremony. Our guests enjoyed them during cocktails, some commented that they were disappointed that SMS didn't play during our reception too. I highly recommend SMS Jazz Project!

Adam and his band were awesome! Super responsive and easy to work with. They learned some of our favorite songs for us and even stayed a bit late since cocktail hour ran a bit over which I truly appreciated.

They showed up as planned and it was all seamless. I didn't have to worry about a thing.

The SMS Jazz Trio (+1) was AMAZING. And perfect for the mood of a wedding full of fun people who love music as atmosphere, but want to talk and mingle, too! They know all the best tunes and then some, are easy to plan with, and operate as a total worry-free solution to great jazz music at your event. They were incredible at my wedding (art gallery for 50), after meeting them during a great set at another wedding (seaside for 250)...consider them highly recommended as a reliable and enjoyable jazz solution for your special event.

My wife and I hired the SMS Trio with the hope of adding a classic feel and energy to our cocktail hour and they did just that. Not only did they cater to our requests, they offered some suggestions that really solidified their set, true professionals. Our guests are still talking about their performance from our wedding. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a classic wedding touch at an affordable price.
