About Vendor 

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

If you are looking for some classy jazz, the Prickly Pair Jazz Duo is an affordable option. We perform straight ahead traditional jazz standards, latin, bossa's, sambas as well as some pop favorites, a great mix for most crowds. The Prickly Pair Jazz Duo is an instrumental jazz guitar and bass duo. We perform at many corporate get togethers, private dinner and cocktail parties, grand openings as well as weddings. Our music will never overpower your guests ability to talk, or just enjoy the music. The style and professionalism of the Prickly Pair Duo create a musical ambiance that will add class to any party or corporate event. By the way, if you are looking for a larger group with sax, trumpet, violin or vocals, check out my other listing : Trilogy Jazz Collective Here's what my clients are saying: (more on my web site) CORPORATE EVENT: Prickly Pair was Great! Prickly Pair was exactly what I was looking for at my event. They came early, were prepared and were very nice! Everyone enjoyed the music! Reviewer: Kelly B. Event Date: November 14th, 2019 Rating: 5 out of 5 CHARITY EVENT: Prickly Pair Duo are seasoned professionals. Prickly Pair showed up ahead of time, set up and started doing their thing - which is wonderful to hear! Smooth Jazz which everyone could enjoy - added to the atmosphere without being intrusive just gave the right "vibe" to the evening. Would wholeheartedly recommend. Reviewer: Loretta A. Event Date: September 14th, 2019 Rating: 5 out of 5 CORPORATE EVENT: The perfect fit! The guys were terrific. Consummate musicians and very personable. Our even planner mentioned how they added greatly to the ambiance. 200 attendees who stayed for the duration! So happy with how it all turned out! Reviewer: Sean W. Event Date: May 15th, 2019 Rating: 5 out of 5 WEDDING RECEPTION: Great band! I did not want a DJ for my wedding, but I did want some live jazz. The Prickly Pair Jazz duo was great: they played standard jazz favorites, and the music was a great compliment to the reception! Communication was very easy, and I enjoyed working with them. Reviewer: Ardella A. Event Date: April 27th, 2019 Rating: 5 out of 5 WEDDING RECEPTION: You guys provided a lovely set for our cocktail hour guests.

Reviewer: Marlene K Event Date: March 18th, 2018 Rating: 5 out of 5 WEDDING: Unbelievable! We are so pleased with Prickly Pear the guys were amazing !!!! They entertained our wedding party for the whole evening ,there repertoire was amazing and we would only use them for our future events !!! Reviewer: Bruce T Event Date: November 10th, 2018 Rating: 5 out of 5 PRIVATE PARTY: Thank you- perfect! Dennis and Dan of The Prickly Pear Jazz Duo were perfect for our Celebration of life event even in a venue with less than stellar acoustics. Very accomplished musicians and very personable. Our guests came about 10 minutes early so they asked if they could go ahead and start! The volume was just right to hear but still allow conversation. I went outside briefly and missed the one song I had specifically requested, so they played it again for me! Couldn't have been better! Thank you.

Thanksgiving CelebrationReviewed on November 21, 2015From Fountain Hills, AZ

The Prickly Pair Jazz Duo was the perfect accompaniment to our afternoon party in the park! We had an early Thanksgiving Arizona-style with guests from near and far, of all ages and musical tastes. Dan on the guitar with Ben on the upright bass struck all the right notes with their jazz and mellow tones in the background. Dan was super easy to work with, and their music was everything I had hoped for. Our guests had a great time at our party, and I know the music was a huge part of the day. I would definitely use Prickly Pair Jazz Duo again if I had another party!

Corporate FunctionReviewed on February 19, 2015From Phoenix, AZ

I used the Prickly Pair for an event I organized in Phoenix and I am sure glad I did. Dan and his colleague were first rate! From the planning phase right up to the day of the event, Dan was incredibly attentive, accessible and easy to work with. There were a lot of details to the event but none so small that Dan did not have time to discuss. And the music was amazing! I could see that my client and their guests were really enjoying it. I would certainly use Prickly Pair again and highly recommend this group for an event of any type.
