About

The Hollywood Rhythm Kings are very experienced, professional musicians. As soon as you hear our samples, the difference is immediate. You will hear the same top-level performance at your special event. In 2013 we were chosen by The National Endowment For The Arts to play play music from "The Gatsby Era" at a series of venues across Southern California. We guarantee to provide the utmost professional standard. We show up ahead of time, looking & acting professionally, providing all the necessary equipment needed for our performance. We have been in business for over 13 years, performing at more than 1100 events. It is possible that we have already played at the location where your event takes place! We know what it takes to provide just the right music for your event, and all the aspects associated with it. For all these reasons our rates might appear slightly higher than the cheapest music solutions available to you such as hiring students, non-professionals musicians, DJ / boom box option, etc. We believe however that we offer very reasonable and competitive rates for the highest caliber of music making provided by our group. Based as the classic rhythm section of piano, bass and drums, we can also add guitars, saxophones, horns and more, depending on your needs. We play Jazz- from background to danceable, from Dixieland to Miles Davis, 20's, 30's, 40's Era Swing to Smooth Jazz into today, along with Pop, Classic Rock and Blues. We love what we do, and we take pride in playing music for people! The countless number of positive comments from our clients speak for themselves.

We had an unfortunate family circumstance that caused us to have to postpone our wedding for a little over a month. The band we had originally hired were unavailable for the new date. We luckily found Hollywood Rhythm Kings and we couldn't have been more pleased with them. Not only were they understanding of our situation and were very accommodating due to the short notice, but they also fulfilled every one of our requests and then some. They were incredibly engaging, fun, funny, professional and the music they produced was so great we couldn't believe we had been able to get them for our wedding. I could not possibly recommend Hollywood Rhythm Kings more! FANTASTIC

Hollywood Rhythm Kings were more than awesome, if I could give them 10 stars I would. I planned my father-in-law's 70th birthday party and I had a set schedule, but in a party everything is relative and never goes as planned, but the Hollywood Rhythm Kings rolled and flowed with the "punches" as the evening went on. The trio were very generous with the many interruptions and requests of our guests. It's more than a "job" for them and that really shines through when they perform! Totally would recommend them and I know who I'm hiring again for my mother-in-law's party...Hollywood Rhythm Kings! Thank you for a wonderful evening full of happy memories and music!

The music was perfect for our event-combined with the singer who had a georgous voice. We stayed late after many of the guests had left to enjoy the last few bars.

The Hollywood Rhythm Kings MADE our event! Their talent, love of what they do and profesionalism shown from the moment they arrived! They read the energy of the party and always gave exactly the right music for the moment and flow of the evening. Soft smooth jazz at the beginning when people arrived and wanted to talk, then later, when people wanted to kick up their heels and dance, the band went into the funnest, most high energy danceable tunes every body knows and loves. I am still getting endless compliments on them from everybody who attended. I highly reccomend them. They are the best band I have ever hired. You will be delighted! Patti Negri
