About
At its core, a female jazz singer led Trio, but with options to expand up to a 7 piece jazz unit. Whether you're celebrating an anniversary, wedding, birthday or company corporate event or just need beautiful, sophisticated ballads, roaring Gatsby swing or intimate cocktail hour entertainment at your event, Jackie West and her Jazz Band provide the ultimate CLASSY and ELEGANT performances of the Great American Songbook (Gerswhin, Rogers and Hart, Cole Porter, Ellington, Berlin, etc) with some of your favorite jazz standards very few jazz units can imitate.

Jackie West and her Jazz Band are (at the core a Jazz Trio (guitar, bass, vocalist), that can also expand into a larger unit easily with added drums, piano and horns) are comprised of some of NYC's most talented, young jazz artists who swing and call to your heart strings.

Jackie West was born to a family of musicians and surrounded by music and celebrations of jazz from an early age. Her uncle was drummer Ernie West--and her grandfather was a crooner. Her grandmother was a jazz dancer who frequently hosted Sarah Vaughn at her dinners. While she grew up listening to the rock n roll her father played, Jacquelyn was taken care of by her grandmother who exposed her to swing, bebop and the compositions of great cousin, Henry Mancini. Jacquelyn studied tap dancing and poetry, then turned to the microphone as a teenager.

Jacquelyn brings a fascination to the spontaneous, collaborative aspects of jazz. She studied with master vocalists over the years and performance at the New York Jazz Academy. Her style is rooted in tradition, having spent time learning the blues in St. Louis, Missouri. Poets and musicians describe Jacquelyn's voice as "soft, honest, and playful with no maneuvers" and "like having a peppermint and a cigarette at the same time".

With a jazz vocabulary of songs from the Great American Songbook and Jazz Standards that would make any occasion a special one, clients are constantly buzzing about Jackie West and her band and quickly making this Jazz Unit one of the most in-demand for Private and Corporate events in the tri-state area.

Bring ELEGANCE, CLASS, CHARM, and STYLE to your special event by adding great music and musicianship only Jackie West and her Band can provide.

Jackie West & Her Jazz Band were great. I didn’t get to see as much of them as I would’ve liked (since I was the groom and had to do groom stuff) but what I did see was great and all my guests were commenting afterward on how much they enjoyed their music. We even had to move locations because of rain right as the ceremony was about to start and they rolled with it and were cool and easy. Long story short. Nice people. Dope musicians. Defiantly recommend.

There are no words to say how amazing this band was and how special having them at our event was. Their personal attention to detail catered to the guest of honor in the most special way. We literally felt like we knew them, it was that smooth and familiar. The restaurant/hotel ( super high end NYC venue) LOVED them and I am sure will have them back. Jackie is so lovely, Her voice so special and smooth and her band just perfect. They were also so professional and appropriate. We cannot wait to work with them again.

I am seriously not one to give all 5’s however, Jackie West and her Jazz band were incredible. They performed at our wedding at Bryant Park on the roof for cocktail hour and they were incredible. They completely set the tone for an elegant wedding. Their manager Laurence was incredible and great to work with. The group made you feel like you were in another world like the roaring 20s. They really added the magic to our fantasy of a wedding at the Bryant Park Grill. Can’t wait to have another event to hire them and recommend them to others!!

Jackie West and Her Jazz Band were absolutely a delight. They performed in my backyard for a small family gathering for my husband’s 80th birthday. Everyone was enthralled with the music. Jackie has such a beautiful voice and the acoustic guitar and bass were perfection. I would definitely have them at my next celebration. I most highly recommend Jackie West and Her Jazz Band.
