ABOUT It is an eclectic musical journey that has seen Katie Harris work professionally in the rock, pop, and jazz worlds as a touring musician, studio musician, songwriter, and bandleader. She has contributed to music heard in film and television including Legally Blonde (MGM), What Lies Beneath (DreamWorks), Ugly Betty (ABC), The Road To Stardom With Missy Elliott (UPN), and a most recently recorded original song “This Hollow Heart” which was featured in the 2018 film Spare Room - currently streaming on Amazon. She shares the love of jazz music with husband/drummer Tom Brayton with their joint project “The Secret Jazz Band.” The two have performed in such venues as Vitellos (Burbank), The House of Blues (Anaheim), and The Segerstrom Center for the Arts. With The Secret Jazz Band, Katie and Tom have had the privilege of playing with some of L.A.’s best jazz musicians who have performed with the likes of Jane Monheit, Royal Crown Revue, Engelbert Humperdinck, and Jane Lynch. Katie’s early jazz recordings were produced and recorded by her Dad, the legendary Johnny Harris who has worked with Tom Jones, Paul Anka, Petula Clark, and Nancy Sinatra. “Getting to work with my Dad was any child’s dream come true. When I was little, he used to play the piano and I would make some kind of put-together gown with sparkly fringe hanging from my arms. My first memory of singing was me and Dad in the living room performing “Come Rain or Come Shine.” I was 10 years old and probably not very good but he never let on and made me feel like a proper crooner.” During the pandemic crisis, Katie, together with her husband Tom, worked with pianist Matt Politano on writing some original jazz standards due to be released in 2022. “I’ve always thought it would be so much fun to write ‘new’ versions of songs that sound like they are from the 20’s and 30’s. This challenging time has given us a chance to keep in touch with our talented musician friends and bring a bit of positivity through our love of jazz music. We need music now more than ever." ADDITIONAL BOOKING NOTES The Secret Jazz Band is a completely self-contained band. The band comes with its own sound system, stage lights, and DJ background music during band breaks. We can also provide a wireless microphone for your speeches, toasts, and announcements.

Private PartyReviewed on November 17, 2021From San Pedro, CA

They were very personable, friendly, energetic, and offered a fantastic performance for our senior residents to enjoy and dance to. I will keep them on my list of entertainers for future big events. We (Staff, residents, guests, ect.) were all very happy with the music and quality we received from the Secret Jazz Band. 5/5!

The Secret Jazz Band:

Thank you, Adam, for the fabulous review! It was a pleasure working with you and such a joy to see so many smiling faces. We loved every minute and look forward to performing for you all again in the future. Wishing you and yours all the very best!

WeddingReviewed on August 11, 2018From Oceanside, CA

The Secret Jazz Band played at our wedding and we all LOVED them. They played our first dance song live and NAILED it. I attend a lot of live music performances and I rate The Secret Jazz Band as a top notch band. Their talent is amazing as is their professionalism and communication. The ambiance they provided for our special evening will be forever foremost in our memories. Have I mentioned, I just couldn't stop dancing?! and our guests are still talking about "the band"! Our Day Of Planner has added them to her preferred vendor list. We took someone's advise in their review – “hire them and don’t look back” – and now I’m passing that advice to you too!

The Secret Jazz Band:

OH MY! Thank you Colleen and Larry for one of our best best reviews ever! We had a spectacular time at you rooftop wedding this Summer. It was too much fun playing Fly Me To The Moon for your first dance. All your guests were very kind and you two look so happy! We truly wish you both all the best in love and life! Kind wishes, Katie & The Band
