Wedding ReceptionReviewed on October 24, 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.


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

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on November 18, 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 :).


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!

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!


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!

Anniversary PartyReviewed on September 14, 2015From North Granby, CT

Hands down these guys are the best ! We hired Juke Joint Jazz to play at our parents 50th wedding anniversary and these guys were fantastic. Everyone loved them. Plus they were so much fun to be around and super easy to work with. Michael and his group took care of everything and allowed us to relax and just enjoy the night. Great musicians but even better people. Can't thank them enough. Highly recommend for any event. Bill A. 9/12/15

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on February 12, 2014From Greenwich, CT

Juke Joint Jazz had our party dancing! They were on time. Their requirements were simple and the music was perfect for our simple Sunday birthday party celebration. They would be perfect for an elegant evening affair.


Actually, that was a truly elegant and beautiful Greenwich birthday party--just lovely and a joy to play at!

WeddingReviewed on June 5, 2014From Farmington, CT

JJJ were the PERFECT choice for our cocktail party. They were extremely professional all the way through. Michael was tremendously diligent in making sure he had all our details and ensured he followed our instructions the whole way. One of our wedding guests was Jaimoe (John Johanson) the longtime drummer for the legendary Allman Brothers Band. He is married to my mother's best friend and has been a family friend for over 20 years. A jazz musician himself, Jaimoe was seated in front of JJJ and was applauding and raving about their set all night. We couldn't have been happier with our choice & HIGHLY recommend JJJ for any function. Thank you! - Josh Barbarotta


This wedding at Farmington Gardens was sooo beautiful and so much fun to play--great people at a great place--thanks Joshua and Heather and best wishes--Michael and The Joint

Great group, everyone in the party loved the music. Wedding went off without a hitch. These guys drove to southern CT all the way from central MA. Thank you!


We had a complete blast playing at our first same-sex wedding at the Waveny House in New Canaan CT. Thanks and best wishes Alan and Luis!

WeddingReviewed on November 23, 2014From Concord, MA

We hired Juke Joint Jazz for my husbands 60th birthday party. As we had to change the date and venue form the original agreement Michael happily accommodated us which alleviated much stress. The band was on time, professional in appearance, and they set up with no need of assistance for me or the venue. They played beautifully, perfect sound, with a list of music that everyone enjoyed and we danced the night away!! We had several couples who ballroom danced some not as experienced, there was a bit of music for everyone!! Juke JOint Jazz will definitely play again at our summer party, they are an all round great bunch of talented people!! All the best, Tannus


Always fun playing on Newbury St in Boston--Joe and Tannus are superfine people who really care about everything and everyone!

Wedding Cocktail HourReviewed on April 12, 2015From Northampton, MA

Juke Joint Jazz played during the cocktail hour at our daughter's wedding reception. We were the recipients of a great performance. They are a very professional group. Michael was very attentive to detail and worked to provide us a custom experience. It all went by too quickly. Thank you!


Such a very sweet couple and a really terrific crowd of all ages--so much fun to play for!
