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!

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

The greatest thing we did for our reception was hiring Katie Harris. After we booked, Katie stayed in contact with us throughout the months leading to our wedding. The whole process was enjoyable. I cannot express how relaxing it was when it came to preparing for the big day. We had absolutely no doubts about the professionalism and timeliness of the band. With all the time and effort we put forth towards the food, decorations, and favors, 99% of our guests' compliments were about the band. They were absolutely amazing! Everyone loved Katie Harris. Please do yourself a favor. Book this band and never look back. The reviews don't lie.

Katie Harris and The Secret Jazz Band were fabulous to work with! Katie is well organized and takes all the stress out of hosting a party. She and her band are totally flexible and will play the music you request. They were all very positive, professional, respectful, relaxed and a pleasure to have at our event! I highly recommend them and look forward to referring them to my friends.

PERFECT!!!!!!!!!!! I could not be more thrilled with this band. I used them for my wedding reception and Katie was soooo accommodating with all of my special requests. They are very talented. Everyone at my reception raved about them. Trust me--I searched around and you cannot find this good of a jazz band for this price anywhere else. Besides that, Katie is such a sweet person! She was a breath of fresh air when everything around me was so hectic. It was such a pleasure to work with her!! She was always so quick to get back to me when I had questions and she bent over backwards to cater to my requests. She and her band truly set the perfect mood for my day

We hired the The Secret Jazz Band to play at my mom's 70th birthday party and they were incredible. Katie was an absolute delight to communicate with beforehand, and the day of all three of them were easygoing and accommodating in regards to special requests and even providing accompaniment for family members who wanted to perform songs for my mom. Katie's voice is a like a dream, and their song selection and overall vibe made the party just what we were hoping for. All the guests commented on how great they were. I highly recommend The Secret Jazz Band! We would definitely hire them again!

The Secret Jazz Band was the perfect choice for our corporate event! We have a VIP, invitation-only networking party every year for our customers. We had around 300 people in attendance. We haven't had the best experiences in the past with bands understanding the fact that this event is for NETWORKING and we need a moderate volume so people can still hear each other. They did an amazing job understanding this and they're extremely talented! Everyone loved the music. Katie was also extremely professional to work with before, during, and after the event. I highly recommend hiring them for your next event!

This review is long overdue! My husband and I got married in October 2014 and had an intimate 1920s wedding. We felt like a jazz band would be the perfect fit for the theme and the venue. From the very first contact with Katie, my husband and I felt completely comfortable and confident in her. We had special requests for our First Dance as well as the processional songs and they were very accommodating. Everything sounded perfect! Our guests as well as the event staff enjoyed the the Secret Jazz Band and gave us compliments on our selection many months after the wedding. Katie was also incredible in giving us recommendations on our timeline as well. :) Book them now!
