In 2013 we were chosen by The National Endowment For The Arts to play play music from "The Gatsby Era" at a series of venues across Southern California.

We know what it takes to provide just the right music for your event, and all the aspects associated with it.

Corporate FunctionReviewed on September 20, 2013From Pasadena, CA

I can't say enough about The Hollywood Rhythm Kings! These guys were fantastic! They played the perfect music for our event, and were able to get even the most reserved guests up and dancing. Thanks guys, you were great!

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on March 13, 2013From Los Angeles, CA

Hollywood Rhythm Kings were more than awesome, if I could give them 10 stars I would. I planned my father-in-law's 70th birthday party, I had a set schedule, but in a party everything is relative and never goes as planned, but the Hollywood Rhythm Kings rolled and flowed with the "punches" as the evening went on. The trio were very generous with requests from our guests. Compared to other groups out there, they really seem to enjoy themselves and was more than a "job" which really showed when they performed! They are very reasonably priced for what they offer and can do. I would recommend them. Thanks for a wonderful evening full of happy memories and music!
