About
Darryl Brenzel is a seasoned veteran in the jazz world. He spent 26 years with the US Army Jazz Ambassadors performing for audiences across the country and around the world. Having studied at the famed Berklee College of Music,he has played at the Montreaux, Nice, Northsea and Newport Jazz festivals, been on stage w/ the Boston Pops, Baltimore Symphony, National Symphony, Detroit Symphony and New York Pops, backed musicians such as Chris Isaak, The Beach Boys, The Four Tops, The Temptations, The Drifters and Jerry Butler as well as leading his own group in jazz clubs along the east coast. (That list is just partial!) As a music educator Darryl has been part of the jazz faculty at Towson University and Gettysburg College and currently teaches at Shenandoah University. Darryl can bring all this experience to whatever event you have planned and can provide the perfect touch with a duo (sax and piano or sax and bass)), trio (sax, piano, upright bass) or quartet (sax, piano, bass and drums). The music is typically a mix of songs from The Great American Songbook (Cole Porter, Gershwin, Rogers & Hart, etc.), jazz and swing classics (Ellington, Miles Davis, etc) and latin/bossa novas. A few originals or jazz arrangements of pop tunes are also a part of the repertoire on occasion. Usually it is all instrumental music but a network of the areas top jazz vocalists are also on call should the occasion require it. Versions of requested tunes for special occasions can be provided as well.

We are ecstatic that we found the Darryl Brenzel Group! They made our daughters wedding reception truly magical and memorable! We received countless complements from guests during and after our event. The performers were so professional, well dressed and talented. The music was outstanding and very tasteful. They were extremely accommodating with song choice, music style, start/end time and last minute requests. They even accompanied my husband (he wanted to surprise the new couple with a song). Communication was prompt and easy. We couldn’t be happier. We would highly recommend them for any event and can’t wait to have the opportunity to hire them again!

This event was for my daughter's wedding and we wanted some light background jazz for the cocktail hour. I really liked the three recordings that he offered up as samples at Gig Masters. Darryl proposed to bring a trio (sax, piano, bass) as a drummer would tend to bring it to the foreground. I asked them to play standards from the “Cool Jazz” scene of the 1950’s. Darryl and his group really delivered. Our guests were impressed and very much enjoyed the music that the Darry Brenzl Group performed at our event. I would highly recommend them.
