Corporate FunctionReviewed on December 3, 2023From Salt Lake City, UT

Joe was great to work with both from the standpoint of him as a band leader and logistically in working with the venue and our needs for the party. They sounded great, played great, and met every expectation we had for the night. The four piece was perfect and played great jazz standards. Highly recommend.

Community EventReviewed on December 8, 2022From Provo, UT

I had Joe as a solo act and he was fantastic! He came early to set up, looked very professional, and sounded amazing. This event was a senior (60+) dance. He mixed it up with fast and slow songs, our dance teacher took about a half hour to teach the fox trot and was playing songs for her that went with the dance, he took requests, he brought a trombone which added so much to songs, played the piano, and sang beautifully. I would definitely recommend and hire him again. Thank you Joe!!

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on March 9, 2020From Lodi, CA

I had Joe and his band play at our wedding reception and everybody loved them! They were professional and song selection were great! They knew how to set the mood and play at a good volume. I’m so happy I booked Joe and his band! My wedding wouldn’t have been the same without him! Thank you Joe!

FundraiserReviewed on December 16, 2018From Novato, CA

Joe Escobar's Jazz Ensembles ideally complimented our evening fundraiser. His song list was a perfect accompaniment to our cocktail hour and dinner. We loved listening to his vocals and rendition of our favorite standards. Once you hire Joe, you can leave everything up to him and not have to stress over that aspect of your party. He is extremely professional, punctual and comes fully prepared with all the acoustical instruments necessary to fill the evening with wonderful music. I would highly recommend Joe and his ensemble.

LOVED this Jazz Band. They were very communicative before the event; showed up early to set up; came dressed professionally....and on top of all of that, they were GREAT musicians. Everyone at our corporate event loved them. I would definitely use them again both for a professional or a private event.

First of all: Wow and thank you! Joe and his band were nothing short of amazing. Joe was very prompt when asked for a quote and all questions I had were answered instantly and professionally. They were very accommodating to ALL my requests and delivered an outstanding performance. Working with Joe and his band was a wonderful experience from start to finish. I would highly recommend Joe’s Jazz Ensembles for any event. Classy and professional. Thanks Joe!

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on October 4, 2017From Saint Helena, CA

I hired Joe Escobar Jazz Ensembles for my wedding at V. Sattui Winery in St. Helena. In planning the wedding, Joe was very responsive. During the wedding, for what I can remember as a busy bride, the music was excellent. It was hard to hear announcements at the venue amidst the wedding noise, but I wouldn't fault Joe Escobar's team for it. I really appreciate that Joe played a specific song I requested for my father, and that he was a great sport when (to my own surprise) my dad had the mic! The Joe Escobar Quartet was a wonderful addition to my wedding, and I highly recommend them to anyone looking for live jazz music entertainment. I just wanted to sit and listen.

FundraiserReviewed on December 11, 2016From San Jose, CA

Joe and his ensemble were both excellent and professional. We hired them for our most important fundraising brunch of the year and the were the perfect compliment. They played great tunes and were very aware of the mood an volume level and adjusted accordingly without having to be asked. They showed up early and were totally self sufficient. We couldn't have made a better choice for music. Thank you Joe! We will be hiring you several times next year!

This Ensemble is amazing!!! Everyone at our wedding was obsessed with how good they are. I lost count of how many people asked where I found them. If you are in the market for a jazz ensemble, look no further. Truly made our evening magical!! Amazing!

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on March 20, 2013From Morgan Hill, CA

Joe and the band were AMAZING! First, I contacted Joe through the "request bid" process and he got back to me within an hour. He pointed me to all of his YouTube videos and I knew immediately he had the right band for my party. The guys showed up early and they looked professional. They set up, warmed up and were ready to go as the first of my party showed up. Throughout the day, the band played beautifully. They were, at times, the center of the party, and at other points a nice background for the party. From big band to jazz, they cover it all...and I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone who wants a beautiful band for their event!
