About
Flash back to the early sixties when the Mad Men execs went out for a classy Martini Lunch accompanied by the sounds of Sinatra, Bobby Darin, and company. Besides providing cool backgrounds or hot swing, Martini Lunch also puts their signature spin on soul, blues, and pop tunes that fit that classic vibe.

Martini Lunch can be augmented to fit the needs of the occasion and client, adding saxophone and/or guitar. Past clients include: The City of Chicago, Pepsi, Elmhurst Art Museum, Navy Pier Entertainment, Quaker Oats, Cog Hill C.C., Sears, Corporate Productions, DuPage Pads Charity, and many, many more, plus numerous wedding receptions and private parties/special events, as well as shows for colleges, park districts, and night clubs.

From cool backgrounds to hot swing and beyond, Martini Lunch plays the field of musical dreams.

I'm a musician who hired Martini Lunch to play for an event I hosted. Leader Tim Hays is a true professional and great to work with for the event. We hired the jazz quartet with vocal doubling as: bass/piano/percussion/sax For three hours background music for a dinner event of 100 people. Perfect. They easily added songs I pre-requested and even arranged a tune for me. Easy to email for questions with quick turn around time.

We had a fantastic experience with Martini Lunch at our parent's 50th Anniversary Party. They were on-time, easy to work with and most importantly - they sounded fantastic. They played a lot of standards that everyone loved. They didn't need any instruction because these guys are professionals and masters of their craft. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them for parties, weddings, receptions, work events, and more. Cheers to Martini Lunch!
