About
The Early Bird Jazz Band are a group of true specialists in classic and traditional jazz. The members of the band are busy playing jazz clubs, festivals, and concerts all around the world, but we love to make time to play special occasions for clients who appreciate great musicianship and a carefully crafted ambience.

Led by clarinetist and saxophonist Ricky Alexander, the band has performed hundreds of weddings, private events, dances, and parties. Our band can perform with between three and nine members, so we are able to adapt to fit your budget. The musicians in the band are passionate about classic jazz, from the popular tunes of the 20s to the swinging and bopping of the 50s-60s.

I am so lucky to be able to hire some of the best musicians in NYC. They have graduated from schools like Manhattan School of Music, Juilliard, and NYU. We pride ourselves on our professionalism and musical sensitivity, and we can't get enough time playing music with each other! Martina appears on my recently released debut album, "Strike Up The Band", which got some great reviews and radio play, and is available everywhere for your listening pleasure.

The Early Bird Jazz Band played our wedding on 9/30/18 and they were amazing! We loved their classic sound; it set the perfect romantic and vintage mood that we were looking for. Ricky the band leader was so professional and accommodating. The band played every song that we requested and even learned a few just for us! The guitar player started the night off on the right foot with background music during cocktail hour. And Martina, the singer, blew everyone away with her voice. We loved her when we first watched the band on YouTube and she was even better in person. Overall, such a talented group of people. We feel lucky to have had them perform at our wedding.

The band was a pleasure to work with and helped us ensure our 25th Wedding Anniversary Party was a musical success. A very talented group of musicians and singer who made the night even more special. Over all the group was a 5+++, it couldn't have been any better.

They made our wedding spectacular and we're the talk of the party. They sounded great on their clips and even better in person. They accommodated a few song requests that personalized our event, and even did a second line march for us from the ceremony to the reception. Ricky was extremely professional and the band was so nice! I would recommend to anyone, they truly made our day special.

These guys were absolutely GREAT! I had an Alumni Party for 60 people and every one loved them. They even did a short video on YouTube to help promote the Party. Really wonderful. We will definitely have them back next year. They were the hit of the party. I would highly recommend them. Don't take a chance on anyone else. They were right on time, incredibly nice and had a fabulous selection of tunes, even the Washington & Lee Swing!

Ricky and the team were so professional and sounded AMAZING. We had a pretty chaotic start to the show and they were incredible at rolling with the punches. It was a perfect experience I can't recommend them any more highly.

I hired the Early Bird Jazz Band for my wedding in Manhattan and it was the best decision I ever made. What an amazing band! I highly recommend the Early Bird Jazz Band to play for any event. Every member of the band is so talented and it was truly an honor having them perform at our wedding. Our venue was a historic venue, so we wanted our guests to feel as if they were transported back in time. The Early Bird Jazz Band did just that and created the perfect atmosphere for our guests and had them dancing the whole time.

We hired the Early Bird Jazz Band to play for our wedding in the Catskills — including the ceremony, background music throughout dinner, and dance music for the reception — and they were absolutely divine. Our guests RAVED about how fabulous they were, and their gorgeous music added such a unique, special energy to our celebration. They are truly gifted musicians. Beyond that, Ricky and his band were incredibly professional, and were so generous in helping us to craft the ambience we wanted for each portion of the evening. They were beyond what we ever imagined, and we're thrilled to have had them as part of our wedding experience.
