About
Society Jazz has the best of the best! We invite you to read the backgrounds of our gifted musicians on our dot-com address under our name.

Featuring the great standards from the 20's thru the 50's with a nod to the male crooners of this time. From Frank Sinatra to Johnny Hartman, Society Jazz will add just the right note. Society Jazz is the perfect choice for the cocktail hour, wedding receptions, fundraisers, anniversary's, openings and dances....oh and yes, we do take requests!

From within our own ranks we can also supply classical music for your ceremony and build to a Jazz Combo or Big Band with these same players for your reception. We are event people and now how to put together music that works from beginning to end. We are especially in-tune to supply the right music choices for your Weddings and Fundraisers!

Woody DeMarco-Pianist
Woody DeMarco is one of the top pianists in Santa Barbara and all of us love working with him. Woody serves up good old fashioned be-bop with a distinctly personal touch. His ideas can be moody or joyful, and that makes for a very interesting mix. DeMarco is a solid jazz pianist, who swings delightfully with the Society Jazz Trio. There isn't a professional musician or a venue in town that Woody has worked with and we're very happy to have him join Society Jazz as one of our pianists.

Kevin Fox-Keyboards
Pianist/ Composer Kevin Fox began playing piano at a very early age. At 17, he began playing professionally. In 1988, he took a job with Holland America Line and in 1989, was promoted to Musical Director (Pianist/Conductor) of the 10-piece orchestra on the New Amsterdam. In 1990, he moved to New York City to continue his career as a live performer playing solo and as band leader at many of New York City's finest establishments including the Carlyle, St. Regis and Four Seasons Hotels, Tavern on the Green and Sardi's, The '21' Club and at the historic Greenbrier Hotel near Washington D.C. From 2002 until 2008, he was the regular weekend performer at the Star Lounge, Ritz-Carlton, Central Park, entertaining a diverse clientele with a sophisticated selection of classic and contemporary music. Most recently, he relocated to Carpinteria, California to continue working as a live performer as well as a composer and producer. Please visit (Kevin Fox's composer website). Kevin has performed locally at Montecito Country Club, Mara Villa Senior Living and Nordstrom and is a member of Society Jazz.

Rene Martinez-Drums and Ruben Martinez-Bass and Flute
Sons of the great Lorenzo "Lencho" Martinez, Sr. of Xavier Cugat's orchestra, these boys began playing at the age of 4 and 12. Rene is an accomplished drummer and latin percussionist and Ruben plays both electric and upright bass as well as jazz flute and marimba. While growing up under the talented wings of their father, Ruben and Rene would join with Lencho on local steady gigs at the El Paseo Restaurant and Biltmore Hotel, performing with their mother and many others including; Betty Montano-Glenn Novack's mother,. One of the greatest joys of their life was performing at the Biltmore with their father. Glenn says: " I always wanted to put a group together with the Martinez Brother's, not just because of their great talents but also because our parents worked with each other." The Martinez Brother's have been fixtures in The Old Spanish Days Fiesta for years. In recent times, Rene and Ruben have enjoyed a 15 year gig at the local Cafe Buenos Aires. You can see Ruben and Rene weekly at Tony Ray's and Monthly at Soho Restaurant. Ruben and Rene have played for just about everyone in town and at nearly every venue.
