We are all full-time professional musicians with many, many years of playing experience and can provide groups of any size from solo to quintet and beyond. It gives us great pleasure to share our music with audiences, but at the same time we appreciate that our clients are often in need of entertainment that does not overshadow the occasion itself. We understand that organizing an event can be stressful and are ready to provide you with worry-free music for your function. Your experience working with the Blake Newman Group will be effortless: from our first conversation, to choosing music, to the performance itself, you'll find us to be responsive, enthusiastic, well organized and always kind and courteous.

TOP NOTCH!! I hired the Blake Newman Group for my daughter's wedding. The entire day went off without a problem and the Blake Newman Group did their part to contribute to the festive atmosphere. Blake and his entire ensemble were prompt and professional. From the initial discussions regarding schedule months ago, or fulfilling special requests, all correspondence and responses were exceedingly professional. I highly recommend Blake and his band whenever you are looking for sophisticated jazz or easy listening tunes by a group of awesome guys. Thank you Blake!!

Blake and his accompanying musicians were fantastic! Blake was incredibly easy to book and to work with throughout. They exceeded our expectations for great jazz during our wedding cocktail hour - we and our guests loved it! (even my 18 month old niece was dancing along to the music) Phenomenal music and professional to work with, I would highly recommend the Blake Newman Group.

Outstanding and highly recommended! I had an unusual request for a jazz trio to perform in my sister's living room for my Dad's 85th birthday (He is a huge jazz fan, but his health has limited his mobility). Blake was a pleasure to work with - from the beginning of our email conversations, he was extremely accommodating and committed to making the event special for my Dad and my family. He created the set list based my Dad's favorite songs. The gig itself was everything we had hoped it would be - outstanding musicianship, terrific rapport and complete professionalism in every way. My Dad said it was truly a lifetime highlight for him. Hire Blake and his band!

I hired the Blake Newman group to play at a political fundraiser with 200 guests in attendance. From my initial inquiry through the performance Blake and the other musicians were responsive, professional, and friendly. Blake was exceptionally helpful during the booking process about pricing and instrument availability. The musicians arrived with plenty of time to spare and played beautifully for the full two hours, being flexible with their break to accommodate multiple speeches during the event. All of the guests raved about the group's performance and I look forwarding to working with them again soon!

I hired the Blake Newman Group to play during cocktail hour of my wedding reception (about 250 guests). I couldn't be happier with the choice! Blake and all the guys were super nice and accommodating. Most importantly, the music was stellar, it was perfect for the occasion, and everyone dug it. I heard the group on YouTube before hiring, but the videos don't quite capture the fullness of that upright bass. Thanks again guys!

Blake Newman and his group were great performers for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. They have extensive list of jazz standards, and they execute them masterfully. Blake was very accommodating with our requests: we had just a piano for the ceremony, and then kicked into full band (bass, piano, and drums) when we walked back down the isle and into cocktail hour. He was even kind enough to provide a mic and PA for our ceremony. You won't be disappointed!
