SPECIAL UPDATE--JUKE JOINT JAZZ IS NOW FULLY VACCINATED AND READY TO PLAY YOUR SPECIAL JAZZ EVENT!!! Juke Joint Jazz plays their own moving and melodic arrangements of the classic modern jazz repertoire. Featuring several accomplished soloists with influences ranging from Miles Davis to the Grateful Dead, from Monk to Funk, the band plays an eclectic mix of works from an international cast of composers. Our musicians have an average of more than 20 years experience, and several are teachers of music in area colleges. Ken Forfia—piano; David Kisala—saxophone; Michael Levine—guitar; Mark Dunlap—bass and Clark Seibold—drums. 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! Note about location: The 100 mile radius covers quite a bit of territory not mentioned in the Gigmasters profile--Boston, Providence, Greenwich, Albany, Lenox, Brattleboro, Putney, Nashua, and everywhere in between! We are New England's premier Jazz Quintet and play events and shows throughout the 6 NE states plus NY.

Review by Afi D.

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on October 21, 2018From Waterford, CT

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.

Juke Joint Jazz:

A real pleasure working with Afi on the wedding, and a rare opportunity to make a new friend in the process!

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on August 25, 2013From Boston, MA

Many thanks to Juke Joint Jazz for their wonderful performance at our wedding! We could not have made a better choice for a jazz band to make our big day even more special! Juke Joint Jazz came up with the perfect list of songs and they played them with such class and sophistication that all our guests, ages 20s to 80s, enjoyed them greatly. Even now, a few months after the wedding, when we get together with friends/family, everyone raves about the band at our wedding! If you are considering Juke Joint Jazz for your event, choose them without hesitation - they will put on a splendid performance that you as well as your guests will remember fondly :).

Juke Joint Jazz:

This was so cool--they had their wedding at the famous Ryles Jazz Club in Boston--and it seemed like everyone there knew each other. Diana and Peter are just the sweetest people!

Review by Julia M.

WeddingReviewed on July 1, 2017From Woodstock, VT

Juke Joint was very responsive to all my specific requests and transitioned well from their performance to our DJ. Michael answered almost immediately all my correspondence emails/calls over the year I worked with them and even learned a new song for our first dance. The price was extremely reasonable and Michael was flexible with last minute changes in my schedule. He was easy going and fun to work with. They sounded incredible for our first dance "What a Wonderful World" and listening to them play the song will definitely be one of my favorite memories from our big day. Thank you so much JJJ for getting the party started!

Juke Joint Jazz:

Really a pleasure working with Julia on all the details for her wedding. Extra fun to play for such a completely loving couple. Best wishes from Michael and The Joint!
