I hired Juke Joint Jazz for my daughter's wedding. I wanted a live band that played classic jazz. I stumbled upon their band after perusing the internet and listening to many bands' music. That was my lucky day! Their performance is personal and lively. Michael, the leader of the band, is extremely accommodating and would send a list of songs he suggests and also is very open to requests from the bride and groom. He makes you feel as if he has known you for years! That makes it very comfortable for the clients to do business with him. I highly recommend this band not only for weddings, as I can imagine they are a wonderful touch to any happy occasion.
JJJ plays regularly in jazz clubs in Western Massachusetts, and recently opened the NORTHAMPTON JAZZ FESTIVAL on September 11, 2015 with a concert at The Iron Horse Music Hall with The Charles Neville Jazz Quartet. Our group members are all veteran, accomplished players. We play entire weddings--cocktail hour, dinner music, dance sets, and corporate events and private parties as well.
We have the flexibility to play as a trio--Guitar, Piano, Acoustic Bass; as a quartet or as a quintet--our standard, and preferred configuration.
We can produce a set list to your tastes and specifications, and dress according to your requirements. Come see us play live for a solid taste of our music.
Check our latest info at our website. You can now hear several tracks of our newly released CD "Live At The Arts Block" on Gigmasters. IF YOU WOULD LIKE YOUR OWN COPY OF OUR LIVE CD, SEND A POSTAL ADDRESS AND YOU CAN HEAR WHAT WE ACTUALLY SOUND LIKE! Visit Youtube and search Watermelon Man Juke Joint Jazz for a video of us doing it live for 8 minutes.
Thanks for looking and listening!

We are New England's premier Jazz Quintet and play events and shows throughout the 6 NE states plus NY.
