About
From Jelly Roll Morton to Tom Petty, The Standards play an eclectic mix of favorite tunes that'll take you on a musical tour of the twentieth century. With an emphasis on musicianship, they bring fresh life to the roots music they love, while reinventing classic rock staples with inventive acoustic arrangements.
On any given night, you might hear the Rolling Stones' "Paint it Black" done with a banjo and ukulele, a raucous country rocker by Merle Haggard or a jazzy ragtime ditty from the 20's...
And a varied palette of instrumentations and vocal harmonies only add to the gumbo. Michael Sebastian plays the mandolin, banjo, accordion, and his acoustic guitar, Dennis Clark is the best slide guitarist in town and throws in some lap steel now and then, Raymond Guajardo is an amazing upright bassist and lead singer Ryan Marker is a harmonica player who's heavily influenced by the great blues harpists of the past...
Usually accompanied by one or more lovely lady singers, The Standards provide a unique and fun show that can entertain any party, corporate event, wedding reception, or backyard party.

The Standards played a backyard surprise party for my mom’s 60th. Without a doubt, they were the hit of the party and made the celebration beyond special. They arrived early and planned around the “surprise” and found the perfect balance of fun music to get people dancing, but not rowdy so older folks could still chat and enjoy. I cannot express how highly I recommend them. The last song had everyone dancing and hugging in a slow-motion-movie-perfect type moment that I’ll never forget.

The guys were great. So accommodating! Learned a few song requests for our big night. They made it so magical. They also had a great blend of cocktail— laidback lounging music — and dance tunes! Couldn’t have asked for a better group to play for our outdoor wedding venue. Thanks so much Ryan and crew!!

Where to begin? These guys were amazing! First off, their customer service from the very start was on-point! All members are incredibly polite, communicative and easy to work with! Once the actual day came for our party they blew us and our guests away! They have incredible style! Their playlist was exactly what we wanted - they appealed to all ages and kept people dancing all night. I highly recommend them and promise that you will be 100% happy if you hire them for your event! I will hire them again!
