Bogg Jazz Ensemble were very easy to communicate and work with during the hiring process. They were quick to respond with information and very professional and accommodating. We hired them for an 85th birthday party at our home. They showed up with plenty of time to set up and begin playing on time. They were flexible with our end time. Our guests were very impressed with them. They made the party perfect! I hope to host another event in which we could hire them again!
Our members are sure to show up well-dressed, on time, and ready to create something special. After all, the more fun we have making music, the more you will enjoy listening to it! Songs of any genre with thoughtful melodies or grooves that make you move are all fair game. Our catalog includes arrangements of bebop, hot jazz, latin jazz, R&B, soul, pop, and rock tunes.
All Bogg artists have extensive performance and recording experience. Collectively, Bogg's members have performed and recorded on over 20 albums with upwards of 25 bands throughout the North State. Bogg and its members have also received assorted local accolades including best jazz act, best bassist, and best keyboardist.
