Paul Sherwood & The Rhythm Section Jazz Band were wonderful to work with, very professional and put on a great show. They were very flexible, working with the swing instructors we hired to show our attendees a great time! Will definitely keep them in mind for future events.
The Rhythm Section Jazz Band is an extremely versatile jazz orchestra. From classic jazz to pop-rock, our song selection consists of over 20,000 tunes from the Paul Sherwood Music Library. This is one of the largest collections in the world of big band/dance orchestra music.
The band is very family friendly. It is made up of top flight musicians who are professional in performance, dress and conduct.
During the last 5 years we have added DJ services after the band plays to balance out the musical desires of your guest list, if desired by our client.
Also, I can provide a combo or soloist for your cocktail hour or wedding ceremony.
We have worked very hard to put together 'books' of different styles of music to give our clients more choices. We can choose our best songs to best fit your event or you can help us choose your favorites. I can accommodate special requests for a first dance or other special desires.
Swing is our specialty. But, if we pull out the 'pop rock book' then get ready to rock, because we play over 300 songs from the 1960's, 70's and 80's.
If Ballroom Dance is your thing, then, let us bounce, jump, fox trot, mambo, rhumba, tango, conga, cha-cha, samba, stomp, swing and waltz your group to nirvana.
The Rhythm Section Jazz Band core is a 9 piece 'Little Big Band' and consists of 1st sax alto/clarinet, 2nd sax tenor/clarinet, 3rd sax alto/soprano, trombone, trumpet, piano, guitar, bass, drums playing instrumental and vocal music.
If you prefer, we also play as a full big band with 5 saxes, 4 trombones, 4 trumpets and full rhythm section (piano, guitar, bass and drums).
Or, we break down to any smaller size combo if space or budget are tight.
We, also, perform as a post bop quartet with saxophone, piano, bass, and drums. Add a vocalist?
If you need a studio band, recording sessions are seasoned professionals at Onaway Records. We can provide a pit orchestra for your next play, on or off Broadway.
TRS has a commitment to excellence and professionalism that assures a successful outcome for your event's entertainment. Not only are the musicians top notch, but, our crew sets up the band well advance of the musicians' arrival. The PA equipment that we travel with is of the finest quality and our people are the nicest in the industry.
Please, call me to help plan your events' musical needs and to find out why our clients are so pleased with our services.
Thank you for looking and we look forward to hearing from you.
Paul Sherwood, band leader
