Eclipse was wonderful to work with. Very thorough in the planning process, very professional, communicative and did a great job for the performance. I also thought they were a great value for the quality of the performers that we had. I would highly recommend them.

Best musical group we have experienced hiring in years! They had lots up dancing which is unusual for our group! Lots of people asked if we have our event within the Trios area if we could have them back again!

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on May 12, 2018From Richmond, VA

We hired Eclipse for our after wedding celebration this past weekend. I can’t say enough about how terrific the experience was with Eclipse. From the very first contact, they were responsive, professional, flexible, and made our needs/preferences a priority. The leader, Allen, worked hard to find just the right vocalist for the occasion and she was perfect. Ours was a second time around wedding with an upscale, formal venue - about 100 guests in attendance. The positive comments from the guests began half way through the evening and continued all day today. Many thanks to Allen and Eclipse for a truly memorable evening!

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on April 21, 2018From Charlottesville, VA

I can honestly say that booking Eclipse Jazz for our reception dinner was one of the very best decisions my fiancé and I made in the wedding planning process. They were professional, extremely talented, and very accommodating to all of our requests. We asked Allen Wittig if his band would be able to play in the style of New Orleans street jazz, and he promptly replied that if his quartet added another two players (a trumpet and trombone), they could make it happen. We were not disappointed. Truly an incredible group of musicians (not to mention a fantastic deal).

If you are looking for a professional class act this is the band for your event. They are accommodating and personable. It shows that they have love of music and enjoy what they are doing . Your event is taken to an entirely different level with a live band such and Eclipse Jazz Quartet. Love these guys.

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on April 7, 2012From Williamsburg, VA

The Eclipse Jazz Quartet exceeded all of my expectations. Not only did they accommodate all of my last minute requests, but they sounded absolutely amazing! All of my guests complimented me all night about the music. They are worth every penny, and I would hire them again in a second! I would also recommend upgrading to the full ensemble that adds the female vocalist. She is absolutely amazing.

BanquetReviewed on October 27, 2012From Providence Forge, VA

The Performance was great! The quality of jazz music was excellent and Mr. Wittig was very professional and nice. He worked with us even when the contract got lost in the mail. It finally came the day of the performance. I do understand the business of music because I am a musician myself so I know contracts are very important. I am glad that he was courteous about the contract because he did not have to be. We will be hiring them again and I will tell all my friends and family to hire them for their dances and weddings... Thank you for recommending them.

Holiday PartyReviewed on December 13, 2012From Richmond, VA

We found Eclipse Jazz Quartet on GigMasters, and were impressed by the audio clips we previewed so much, that we booked them. They were on time, professional, accommodating, looked great, and are extremely talented musicians. Our party of 80+ people was impressed, and remarked often how much their presence added to the party. My boss has asked me to keep in touch with them, as we will definitely find more opportunities to use them in the future. Excellent job, gentlemen!

Eclipse Jazz played the music at my company holiday party. The booking experience was smooth - Al is prompt in his email responses and very attentive to detail - he made sure all the band's needs were taken care of before the event [another plus here - only electrical outlets and chairs required]. Everyone I spoke with raved about the band - both their professionalism and their excellent play. They gauged the crowd well and played appropriate tunes, and there was a clear atmosphere shift during the band breaks (although they had recorded music during the breaks) and even got some people dancing to the jazz tunes! I'd highly reccomend this band

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on May 28, 2016From Virginia Beach, VA

Can't imagine how they could have performed better. Very accomplished musicians. They cheerfully accommodated a request to let our granddaughter, an accomplished trombonist, sit in with them for one set for their grandmother's birthday party. They were just great.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on September 1, 2013From Virginia Beach, VA

Allen Wittig and The Eclipse Jazz Quintet were very professional. Everyone at the event really enjoyed them and complimented me on making the right choice in entertainment. They added to the overall success of the party. I asked for special songs in advance and they learned them all. I would rehire them immediately for my next event.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on May 17, 2017From Virginia Beach, VA

They were very accomodating to make this surprise party a success, even having to wait to set up until we could get the guest of honor away so they could set up unseen. They sounded beautiful and everyone complimented how perfect it was, and it really made the party a success. Will definitely recommend and 10/10 would use again.

Wedding Cocktail HourReviewed on May 5, 2012From Williamsburg, VA

Stellar jazz quartet - provided EXACTLY the kind of atmosphere I was looking to create for my wedding cocktail and dinner hours. Unfortunately we had to be indoors for the cocktail hour due to rain, but the quartet rolled with it. There was a little confusion about our special request songs for first dances, but the quartet pulled through and it all worked out. VERY satisfied with the talent of the musicians.

We booked Eclipse Jazz for our anniversary party and we couldn't be more pleased. The performers were fabulous and our guests were extremely complementary of the music. So happy we found this amazing group and would highly recommend them to others.

Eclipse Jazz Quarter was everything we had hoped for. The music was well played and appropriate to the occasion. The band was professional and interacted well with the guests. I would recommend Allen and his team and use them again in the future.

We found Eclipse Jazz Quartet online, and hired them as a result of listening to their music on their website. They were excellent and surpassed all of our expectations. We can't wait to have another event so we can hire them again. All of our guests also commented on their performance.
