About
NEW YORK PIANIST AND SAXOPHONIST WILLIAM GATI and the Mellow Tones have performed more than 990 engagements in the North East, and has over 35 years of professional experience. They have entertained for major corporations as well as for small businesses, and private events, and has performed and/or recorded with jazz stars such as John Lewis of the Modern Jazz Quartet, Antoinette Montague and Sir Roland Hanna. If you are searching for musicians that will make your event spectacular, this is the band!

William Gati is also a talented vocalist and song writer and is the house pianist at the Water's Edge Restaurant in Long Island City, New York. He believes that we must all let the music out from within us. His jazz style is soulful, smooth and technical all in various proportions. He loves to play straight-ahead jazz but particularly enjoys playing original compositions. His performances are lively and interesting because they are spontaneous and inspired by the moment. He can put on a very entertaining, creative and memorable performance.

The band owns state of the art equipment including: PA System with 400 Watts, mixer with 8 inputs, 5 microphones, saxophones, keyboards, flute, drums, bass. We also use iPads and can play thousands of tunes from classical to contemporary. We can also DJ any tune you have a recording of and MC your entire event.

We hired Mellow Tones to play at our Holiday Charity Night. The music was great, and they were very professional. They really set the mood with upbeat holiday music and jazz. Everyone enjoyed the show, and we look forward to them playing for us again. Outstanding!

Performed for my wedding and was very accomodating. Bill kept me focused at a time when distractions were coming at me from all sides in the days before the event by having me hear a selection of pieces from which to choose. His large repetoir is a real bonus. As the bride I unfortunately did not get to hear the opening pieces but I got enthusiastic feedback from many guests including my very particular mother.
