With our experience and sensitivity to detail, it is our ultimate goal to help create a special and memorable event, and most of all make sure everyone has a blast! Though we work with some of the top agencies in the area, Hella Fitzgerald is a self-managed band. This helps us keep our prices low while providing a high quality experience.

The band features available add-ons including: guitar, male vocals, extra horns, extra female vocals, and no horns. We supply recorded music for the breaks, or an iPod hookup if you have your own playlist. We begin our dance sets with upbeat Speakeasy jazz and swing with New Orleans style jazz, followed by Classic Soul/Funk/R&B, and finishing off the night with 90's and soulful contemporary Top 40 songs. Hella Fitzgerald is happy to accommodate requests. We can learn specific versions of songs as well (for choreographed dances and special dances). CEREMONY, COCKTAIL, AND DINNER We can provide anything from traditional classical piano or guitar selections, to mainstream choices with or without vocals. A wireless and lapel microphone, and ceremony speaker system are available. Live music can be a really nice touch for cocktail and/or dinner hour. We offer a few packages that can include a small combo, usually people enjoy the duo or trio options (bass + keys, bass, horn + keys, etc) *A curated list of recorded music can be provided for any of these portions. DJ DUTIES A customized iPod playlist is provided for the breaks so the musical flow of your event is never interrupted. We can expand DJ duties to continue after the live music portion concludes if noise ordinances are in effect. We also have in house DJ's and can customize a live music and DJ package. EMCEE DUTIES Our vocalist can perform emcee duties to facilitate the announcement of speeches, toasts, and other events throughout the evening such as cake cutting, bouquet/garter toss, and transportation announcements (shuttles, etc). Our wireless microphone and speaker system can be made available to you and your guests for announcements, toasts, and speeches as well.

Review by Natalie A.

CelebrationReviewed on August 24, 2019From Los Angeles, CA

We absolutely loved Hella Fitzgerald! And our guests did too. People are still talking about how great the music was at our party. From our initial inquiry, the production assistant,Natalie, was communicative and helpful, and worked with us to bring our Gatsby themed party to life. The singer (and band manager), Lilan, was fantastic, versitle, and flexible. She was able to keep the party moving, even when we changed the schedule of toasts at the last minute. They had the look, the sound, and perfect touch Thanks!

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on July 6, 2019From Los Angeles, CA

We originally contacted Hella Fitzgerald because we liked their overall vintage vibe but we really only wanted live music for the ceremony and cocktail since our family friend was going to be the DJ for the party. Lilan worked with us to provide a pianist and herself on vocals. She learned the specific songs we wanted for our ceremony and the two of them added such a nice ambiance to our party. All of our guests were commenting on how great they were. I highly recommend them and would love to hire them for our anniversary party!
