The Randazzo Jazz Quartet was fabulous. They were very professional. They arrived early so I never had to worry they were stuck in Boston traffic or lost due to the Big Dig. It worked out well since the area I had set aside for a band was too small! They called me on my cell and we quickly found another area. They were set up and ready before the first guest arrived. The music was great. We wanted background music during cocktails and dinner. They kept the music going. Some guests even got up and danced during dinner. They have a great selection of songs and they sound wonderful! I also found them very reasonably priced compared to other Quartets. The band is definitely underpriced for such talented musicians. I plan on booking them for our holiday party next year.
Book a trio, quartet or quintet with Joe and expect the highest quality in jazz from Monk to Jobim. Joe will work closely with you to ensure your expectations are met.
