About
We are a variety band of long expeienced professional musicians with primary emphasis on easy-listening jazz and big band swing. We are equally at ease performing Dixieland, Latin, ballads, and Broadway show tunes from the 20s to the 60s. Our repetoire also includes 50s/60s/70s, light Rock & Roll, polkas, waltzes, and Irish/Italian/Jewish ethnic music. We also do some humorous parodies. Rounding out our variety is some vintage country and blues. Our music is easy on you ear drums, and we encourage audience requests.
We use a minimum of two pieces, up to seven. We are available for dances, concerts, corporate functions, weddings, anniversaries, and birthdays. We are also listed in gigmasters under jazz in Chicago; please go there to review additional ratings by previous customers.

What a great band! The overall experience was EXCELLENT! This was my first time booking a band and from start to finish the band was helpful, accommodating, and courteous. They came all dressed up and looked marvelous! We booked them for our Client Christmas Party and all of our clients loved them just as much as we did. They did a lot of requests and made all of the guests feel part of the party! Thank you so much for making our party a hit! Senior Consultants

The group was fantastic and everyone at the party came up to me and said " Where on earth did you find this band, they are the best we have ever had at our reunions ", and I ought to know as I hired all of them. Thanks for making me look like a hero and like I did something great for my classmates. The band knew every song requested and closed the night with an old favorite from when we were all in high school..Harlem Nocturn.. Thanks Melodaires..

We had the Melodaires perform at our daughter's wedding reception on 03-06-09....they were a hit! They came decked out in tuxes--they looked great and their music was wonderful! Very retro, big band....they were enjoyed by all! Clare Alexander (the leader of the band) was wonderful to work with...easy to contact and very willing to play to our requests! We can without reservation recommend the Melodaires!

Absolutely fantastic band! They rocked my wedding reception, and boy did they rock it good. Every last one of my guests was in awe as to how good they were. They played every single song requested and much much more. They showed up before the time required with their own exceptional sound equipment and played hard all the way to the last minute. These cats are all the way live! You just don't come across bands like this everyday...don't pass this band up. You will not be let down, I promise. Thanks again guys!

The band was absolutely wonderful. My husband and I hired them to play our wedding. Our guests raved about the band and were very impressed. Clare was more than willing to help with song selection and was even willing to learn new songs. We highly recommend Melodaires.

Melodaires Band was the perfect choice for our daughter's wedding. They were not only wonderful and accomplished musicians, they played just the right music and played to our small group just as if we were a large crowd. They interacted with all of our guests and each other in an easy, humorous manner. Everyone in attendance, young and old, commented on how much they enjoyed the band, and not just their music, which was phenomenol, but their personalities. All members dressed in tuxedoes and presented as very professional and accomodated a last minute change of the keyboardist being asked to move his equipment between the ceremony and reception, which was very much appreciated. We would definately recommend them for any function, small or large, and hope to have the opportunity to use their services again sometime.

This band was fabulous !!!! We hired them for a 50th Anniversary party. I had no idea about hiring a live band. They were on time, dressed up, played beautifully, and even added a bit of humor to the evening. Many of the guests (young and older) came to me throughout the evening to tell me how awesome the band was. I highly recommend the Melodaires, and I would definitly call them again if I need a band !!! Thanks Clare and the rest of the band !
