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!!!

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.
