The Queen City Jazz Trio is composed of 3 long time professionals. Two of us are from New York City and one is from Chicago. Individually we have worked with some of the finest musicians including Buddy Rich, Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes, The Shirelles, Frank Wess, The Belmonts, Lenny Welch, TK Blue, Chuck Jackson, Jim McNeely, Frank Caruso, and many others. We have been playing together in Charlotte since 2015 and have performed at the Mint Museum, Stowe Botanical Gardens, The Steinway Gallery, South Park Hilton, Charlotte Aviation Museum, The Capital Grille, The Carolina Hotel, and many private functions. We play jazz standards, bossa novas, and smooth jazz. Our sound is perfect for corporate events, receptions, galas, etc. Our core group is keyboard, bass, and conga drums. We can add a singer and/or a sax player if your situation calls for that. If you want some DJ music mixed in with the live music for dancing we have that covered as well. We provide a good PA system. Please listen to our music and give us a call if you like what you hear.

Thank you for such a wonderful evening and special birthday celebration. The music selection was fabulous. The rhythms and harmonies were tight. You filled the space with beautiful sounds and I look forward to hearing you again. I also appreciate the way you shared your personal musical insights. Keep up the great work you are doing.

Kristie Courtney, Life Enrichment Programs Coordinator, Southminster Charlotte
Thank you again for arranging the concert the other week with the Queen City Jazz Trio and Nicci Canada. Although I was out of town that week, my colleagues that went said it was just wonderful. We heard lots of compliments from our residents, and know that they thoroughly enjoyed it.
Joe Curry, Global Business Travel Association Gala at The Charlotte Aviation Museaum
Kate Marple-Cantrell, Wedding at Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden
We loved every bit of working with the Queen City Jazz Trio! Bob was so responsive, answered all our questions, and gave us really helpful suggestions of songs to consider (including samples!). We ended up deciding to add a vocalist and a saxophonist, and they suggested great people who integrated perfectly with the core group members. We engaged QCJT for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour and they played a mix of jazz standards and bossa nova instrumentals. I can't even begin to describe how great their music turned out - the music ended up being one of our favorite things about our wedding and we are so thankful to Bob and the trio for pulling it all together. They are professional, prepared, and very very capable. I highly recommend them for any event.
Karen McKenzie, Broad River (Ashley Home) Furniture - Corporate Event
Great music and great guys! Our group truly enjoyed the music and the casual, fun atmosphere this talented trio created!
The Cypress of Charlotte
We loved hosting the Queen City Jazz Trio last week and were amazed with their musical talent. We hope to hear another performance from them soon!
Charles Dorner, Lorraine Dorner Foundation
These are professional and gentlemen. My event was a formal affair and the trio was in tuxedos. Music was exactly what I requested. Thank you for this connection and look forward to using this site for future events.
