Brian and the rest of the guys were such a treat to have at our event! Our residents loved them, the music was divine, and they overall were just amazing. I cannot recommend them highly enough and we have already decided to request them again for the next event we need live music for. Don't hesitate, these gentlemen are pros and worth their exceptionally reasonable price. Thank you so much for making our holiday party a blast!
The NWJC style is rooted in classic, mid-century modern jazz, including standards, swing, ballads, Bossa-Nova, and Aftro-Cuban jazz. We do classic arrangements, but we also have many of our own unique arrangements of jazz standards and jazz arrangements of modern pop songs (eg. Beatles, Joni Mitchell, Cyndi Lauper, Stevie Wonder). For Christmas holiday parties we also mix in jazzy arrangements of traditional holiday songs. Generally we play a style that would appeal to a diverse audience (not just hard-core jazz fans), although we can adjust our style as desired, for example, focusing on dance tunes or something for jazz fans in particular.
In 2017 the NWJC was awarded a Pathways to Jazz Grant (pathwaystojazz.com): "Pathways To Jazz exists to provide opportunities for Colorado jazz musicians of all ages to succeed in their artistic and educational development. We fund qualified musicians to record their music so they may further their artistry and career." Pathways winners are among the best musicians Colorado has to offer.
