Nightingale Jazz Band represents the golden age of jazz, soul and R&B music. Evoking the vibrancy and intimacy of vintage jazz, speakeasies, and classic Hollywood scores, the band provides the perfect backdrop for any event! Nightingale Jazz Band began when vocalist Nora Ritchie and pianist Alex Clough struck up a musical friendship. Both interested in playing classic jazz music in the tri-state area, the duo decided to make a band that brought vintage jazz into present-day. They have been playing ever since and have brought these joyful to sounds to some illustrious venues, including the United Nations, Manderley Bar at the McKitrick Hotel, Metropolitan Club, Flatiron Rom and regular appearances at the Lambs Club and Rainbow Room at the top of Rockefeller Center!

Nightingale Jazz Band present vocal jazz music that feels good and adds elegance and sophistication to any style of event. We have an extensive repertoire and are quite flexible in our configuration, ranging from solo piano to trio to a large ensemble with horns. In addition to jazz, Nightingale plays a wide variety of danceable music, from old school renditions of doo-wop, soul and Motown to 80's pop, Michael Jackson and current top 40.

Alex and Nora, and their band-mates are a group of incredibly talented musicians. They played at our wedding and we couldn't be happier with our choice. From the beginning they were extremely helpful customizing a play list for us, and making sure everything was running the way it suppose to. On the day of the wedding their performance was excellent and well received. They kept the party moving and didn't allow for a dull moment. So many of our guests approached us to rave about the band! They were an absolute pleasure to work with and we would highly recommend them for any event! Thank you guys for making our day extra special!!!

I was looking for a jazz band for our wedding cocktail hour that would fit our speakeasy theme, keep all ages happy and create an elegant and entertaining environment. In that search, I found Alex and Nora.What set them apart was not only their sound, but their customer service. Alex is an absolute delight to work with; very professional and accommodating.I knew he and his bandmates would deliver the elegance and sophistication in which we were seeking and I could not have been more right. They were a huge hit with everyone and I continue to receive compliments about their performance. I hope I have an excuse to work with them again!

I came across Alex&Nora as I was bidding for another band. I got a chance to speak to Alex a few times and actually went to one of their live gigs at a cafe before making a final decision. It was hearing them live that made my decision that much easier. Each of them have such an amazing talent. Over time, I got a chance to speak with Alex several times to work on what I wanted for my special day including Alex learning other sheet music to play during my wedding ceremony. I am so glad we got Alex&Nora on our wedding day. I received so many compliments from our guests. They sounded great, looked great and I would highly recommend them to anyone!

When we told people we found Alex and Nora on-line through a company called Gigmasters 1 month before the party - they couldn't believe it. A band of their quality usually takes many many months to find. We feel very fortunate that Alex and Nora played for our 1st Wedding Anniversary party. It was a very special evening for my wife and I and they really helped make it perfect. Professionals from start to finish! If you're looking for some amazing Jazz to help set the mood at your party - look no further!

Nightingale Jazz Band came through for me when my other musician decided to cancel 45 days before the wedding but I should have gone with nightingale from the beginning! Nora was so sweet, professional, helpful, and quick to respond with planning the music details and has great input and song suggestions for any brides who need help planning. We had Nora and the pianist for our ceremony and then a trio for cocktail hour (w bass) and everything was absolutely amazing! Nora's voice is beautiful and our guests raved about how perfect and talented our musicians were. I couldn't be happier with our choice & would definitely recommend them to everyone! 5 stars all around!

Nora and Alex were the epitome of professionalism when they played at Riverpark for NYE. From the first conversation I had with Nora to the load out after they finished their final set, the experience far exceeded all expectations. First of all, Nora was exceptionally communicative throughout the entire process. She was open to all suggestions, and helpful to accommodate all of our venue's needs. Every member of the band is talented, well mannered, gracious and fun. The sound was perfectly leveled and they had guests dancing throughout the night. They have a massive repertoire of songs and can play each one of them to a tee. Can't say enough. Highly Recommend!!!
