About
The Nite Hawks -
Jazz, Swing, Jump & Blues

Before rock 'n' roll took over popular music in the 1960s, the radios and record players jumped with songs from some of America's greatest composers from the early swing era of the 1920s through the jazzy pop tune era of the 1950s. The Nite Hawks specialize in swing, jazz, jump and blues from composers like George Gershwin, Cole Porter and Irving Berlin to songs performed by the likes of Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra and Ray Charles.

Our repertoire is includes tunes DANCING... not just swing, but foxtrots, cha-cha's, rumbas, waltzes... and even the Charleston.

HOW WE WORK
The Nite Hawks can be configured to meet your specific event requirements and BUDGET. From a simple jazz trio to a complete 12 piece “orchestra,” the Nite Hawks will bring their entertaining blend of swing, jazz, jump and blues to your event.

They were great, amazing performers and arrived perfectly on time, created the perfect atmosphere, and could not have been better. We will be booking them for our next parties, and were so gracious to us.

Pure professionalism from the moment I contacted the band. They checked in often before the event, showed up in ample time to set up, nicely dressed, friendly -- and then played just what we were looking for, a mix of jazz and swing, for a 60th birthday dinner for 40 people. I highly recommend.

Highly recommended trio. They hit the perfect spot for our retirement party. Excellent sound, not too loud or too quiet. Created a perfect ambiance for this social event. No excessive breaks, excellent song options, just a pleasure to have. Easy to communicate and work with in planning the event.
