About
If you love traditional dixieland jazz, this is the place. The Centennial Jazz Band has been playing hot and sweet music for 35+ years, the music of Louis Armstrong and Jelly Roll Morton, Bix Beiderbecke, Fats Waller,and Eddie Condon are among those featured.
The CJB entertains at jazz clubs, private parties, cocktail hours, concerts, weddings, steamboat cruises, festivals, dances, parades and picnics. We recently concluded a seven-year engagement playing every Saturday night at the French Quarter, a cajun restaurant in Wayne, New Jersey,until the restaurants closing. The band consists of the traditional six pieces - cornet, trombone, clarinet, banjo/guitar, and tuba,and drums, but can include piano to fit the occasion. And vocals are also part of the presentation.
As a reviewer said in the Pennyslvania Jazz Society newsletter, they are 'excellent...don't wait to see them.'

We had such a lovely evening. The Centennial Jazz Band communicated very well before the event. They arrived promptly and were set up in no time. Once they began to play, the energy in the room went up a notch. They were accommodating, professional, very kind AND great musicians. They were a great addition to a wonderful evening. Thank you so much!

I hired the Centennial Jazz Band to play for my father's 87th birthday party. They did an amazing job and were a huge hit with the guests. My father is a dedicated fan of Dixieland Jazz and is very knowledgeable about that type of music. He loved the band and, at times, I saw him singing along as they played. Jerry was very professional and easy to work with. All of the band members were friendly and engaging, and interacted well with the guests during their breaks. I have never hired a live band for an event before, so I was quite nervous about how it would go. The band really elevated the event from a generic party to a special and memorable experience.

I was looking for a Dixieland Band and I got the best one out there. I must say they were pleasant and professional. Their music was lively and they got everyone in a Mardi Gras mood. I would highly recommend this band for any fun event. They had horns and banjo and everyone at this event commented how they truly enjoyed their music. They were the perfect fit for our Club Mardi Gras Event. Thank you Centennial Jazz band.

The band was very professional and just what we were looking for for my wife's surprise 50th birthday party. Jerry was very communicative, patient, and clear in his emails, so that I knew exactly what to expect leading up to the party. We would definitely use them again and recommend them to friends.

On time. Professional. Skilled players naiing song after song and bringing incalculable joy to our event. They even surprised us by learning a song a touch out of their wheelhouse (rocky theme). We couldn't be happier and would recommend them without pause!

The Centennial Jazz Band was wonderful in attending to our special requests - they played a special requested song for part of the memorial and even played taps when we needed. Also, they listened to our concerns about the volume of the band in the space and played muted when needed.

I wanted Dixieland music for a party of my co-workers that would set the mood for outdoor fun and games. The band was fabulous! My event was primarily in my backyard, and all I provided for the band was folding chairs and an outlet for their mike. They arrived in plenty of time from all over the place and were ready to roll before the guests arrived. The band members were delightful people and mixed with my party people easily. All were terrific musicians. A 10!

I have known this group for years. I have always greatly enjoyed them. There is always a risk when you recommend something to a large group, as everyone has different taste in music, of course. I must say that everyone was excited about the music and their style appealed to young and old. People lingered to listen to the Band. I gave them 5 out of 5 - the highest rating.

We loved having the Centennial Jazz Band at our wedding, and our guests raved about the amazing music. They were easy to get in touch with via phone and sent us sound clips of their music via email so we can get a sense of what to expect. They arrived on time and were set up and ready to go for the reception. The music was great, and they even sang a song with my name in it. Only minor comment would be that rather than having a set-list, they selected each song on the spot which left some awkward quiet time between each song. Would recommend them highly!
