About
The Hollywood Rhythm Kings are very experienced, professional musicians. As soon as you hear our samples, the difference is immediate. You will hear the same top-level performance at your special event. 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 guarantee to provide the utmost professional standard. We show up ahead of time, looking & acting professionally, providing all the necessary equipment needed for our performance. We have been in business for over 13 years, performing at more than 1100 events. It is possible that we have already played at the location where your event takes place! We know what it takes to provide just the right music for your event, and all the aspects associated with it. For all these reasons our rates might appear slightly higher than the cheapest music solutions available to you such as hiring students, non-professionals musicians, DJ / boom box option, etc. We believe however that we offer very reasonable and competitive rates for the highest caliber of music making provided by our group. Based as the classic rhythm section of piano, bass and drums, we can also add guitars, saxophones, horns and more, depending on your needs. We play Jazz- from background to danceable, from Dixieland to Miles Davis, 20's, 30's, 40's Era Swing to Smooth Jazz into today, along with Pop, Classic Rock and Blues. We love what we do, and we take pride in playing music for people! The countless number of positive comments from our clients speak for themselves.

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!
