Parlor Tricks is a great fit for any wedding, party or special event. We bring a roaring '20s feel that will get your guests moving. From an acoustic ragtime processional to swing cocktail and dinner entertainment, to the let-loose dance party, Parlor Tricks brings elegance and energy to your special event.
Parlor Tricks grew out our great love of ragtime music first heard on phonographic cylinders and 78 RPM records, the popular music that came to be blues and jazz. We have captured the immediacy and infectiousness of Josephine Baker and Louis Armstrong, the fun of early jazz, the foot-tapping melodies and swing that connects deeply with all generations.
What we offer is original and creative, a meeting of the prehistory of pop with the modern. We're a band that's together for the love and exploration of this music. We will surprise and delight your guests and bring the authenticity and originality that you demand and deserve.
Parlor Tricks has our own sound equipment and can build a set list of music that many guests will recognize, if not from their own music collections then from movie soundtracks.
Parlor Tricks is professional musical entertainment and we are happy to accommodate specific songs and other requests to best of our ability.
Parlor Tricks is the world's first and foremost industrial ragtime band. We scratch that hard to reach itch between Fats Waller and the Red Hot Chili Peppers, late-century covers and originals served with syncopation and stomp. Parlor Tricks features sultry vocals, resonator guitar, ukulele, upright bass, horns, and drums.
