About Vendor 

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

If you love jazz and blues, then you've found your fit with Soul Wagon - Allow us to help make your event truly outstanding with world class American roots music. -- We provide vocal and/or instrumental music– classic jazz and blues, funk, bossa nova, or New Orleans music– if you're looking for groovy, then look no further. Soul Wagon carries on the soulful and swingin' sounds of the enormous collection of roots music called Jazz and Blues. Leading the band on piano and vocals, Benito stays true to these enduring styles, showing respect to the great composers all the while adding original and fresh arrangements to these great American songs. While specializing in classic 50's and 60's era jazz, the band also digs deep into simpler blues forms driven by groove, soul, and raw energy. ...The perfect blend of old-school and new-school! Available for club dates and private events, the Quartet will entertain and delight your guests. For weddings, the band can provide everything from small intimate combos for the ceremony, to high energy large band music for the reception. We're a great choice for private events, corporate parties and weddings– playing the classics and providing classy background music for cocktails, or hard swingin' jazz and rockin' blues for those who are really looking to party. Whether it's elegant jazz for background music, or more high energy and danceable grooves to keep the party rockin', the soulful music will delight your guests and add that special touch to your event! Review (2023): Title: Highly recommend! Soul Wagon's trio played during our rooftop cocktail event in Austin. Usually, corporate events are stuffy, but Soul Wagon set the tone for a casual, fun night. Multiple people made a point of saying they enjoyed the music. Even before the event, I was impressed with their professionalism and communication. I'd like to throw another event in the area just to have them play again! –Rachel G Review (2022): Title: Jazz Funeral Soul Wagon truly delivered on my unprecedented request to emulate a New Orleans style jazz funeral for my father-in-law who passed from COVID. Ben was incredibly respectful and gave thoughtful consideration to all the details of their performance. Soul Wagon was awesome to work with and brought some amazing and uplifting talent to our gathering. All our guests raved about the band and they even got my parents to dance who are in their 80’s! Thanks for a beautiful evening, Soul Wagon! –Sharon R. Review (2018): Title: Bride Soul Wagon was the absolute best band for our wedding reception! From the beginning, Ben was extremely helpful and communicative, making 100% sure that every detail was accounted for. Soul Wagon kept our party alive, playing everything from soft, elegant jazz music to upbeat, swinging music that made every attendee get up and dance. Would highly recommend! –Heather P. Review (2017): "We were looking for great jazz musicians for a cocktail party. Soul Wagon came highly recommended from other area planners and they did not disappoint! Ben was wonderful to work with and they really made the reception special!" –Kierstin S.

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on March 9, 2013From Bastrop, TX

Ben Brajkovich and Soul Wagon did an amazing job at our wedding reception. We wanted a jazz band that would make our reception fun for our Cajun relatives, and that is exactly what we got. Our guests kept telling me how much they loved the band, and how talented the musicians were. Ben was very professional and accommodating, too. He communicated with me throughout the entire planning process, and fulfilled every request I made. I would definitely recommend Ben and his band for any event. They will make it a special occasion.
