The Savannah Stompers were absolutely perfect for our wedding, and I can't recommend them enough. I've been to dozens of weddings, and have grown tired of the same old strings vs. DJ options that you typically see - if you want something classy AND upbeat/fun for your wedding, then look no further. Not only were these guys incredibly accommodating in taking a new song request for our dance, but they were flexible and friendly during the entire reception, and our guests loved them. Bob and the boys are quite versatile and can easily go from playing beautiful standards to getting the crowd on the dance floor with some authentic N.O./Dixieland jazz. Book 'em!
This is all fun FOOT-STOMPIN', TOE-TAPPIN', GOTTA GET UP AND DANCE MUSIC! If you want a rousing party your guests will never forget, the SSJB is your band. Our repertoire of everything from slow ballads to the original blues, up-beat Charlestons, two-steps and more, appeals to audiences of all ages. Our audiences are always compelled to leave their chairs and shake a leg to this infectious music. Our breakout quartet or quintet can play American Standard popular tunes for the more sedate cocktail hour segments of weddings or other events. You should look up what previous clients had to say about us in the testimonial section of our "profile".
The Savannah Stompers have played on the Savannah Riverboats, at many historic downtown Savannah squares, private clubs, hotels and historic sites, public events, conventions, fund-raisers, class reunions, "Great Gatsby" themed parties, Mardi Gras Festivals and U.S. Tennis Association tournament parties & award ceremonies. We are particularly popular for wedding functions, in which case our SSJB pianist can perform classical processional/recessional selections chosen by the client ahead of time for the wedding ceremony. We can also play special requests from the popular commercial repertoire for the "First Dance" and family dances at wedding receptions.
The SSJB is a 7 piece ensemble of Savannah area experienced musicians (trumpet,trombone, clarinet, tuba, banjo, drums, and piano/keyboard). Bob Paredi formed and leads the SSJB on TPT and vocals.
We have been the featured band at the Coastal Jazz Association Valentine Day/Chinese New Year Concerts, and were also featured at the annual St. Simons Jazz In The Park Music Festival. Disney Films chose the SSJB , without our solicitation or audition, to perform and be filmed in the Miley Cyrus film, "The Last Song", released in April 2010. Subsequently we recorded and published our first studio recorded CD, "Emperor Norton's Hunch", available at most of our performances.
