We offer both acoustic and amplified music performed in the style and at the volume that you prefer. We play music from the late 1800’s up to today including swing and jazz, popular, classical, and religious repertoire. If you like, we are happy to entertain your ideas and requests to tailor-make the musical soundscape at your event.
