About
The vocal and trumpet stylings of bandleader Jeremy Shrader, along with his wife Michelle (singer/guitarist), are showcased in many variations of groups ranging from solo to his 16-piece big band, The New Memphis Hepcats. From our home base in Memphis, TN, we have thrilled thousands of guests from Little Rock, AR to Washington, D.C, and points in-between. We specialize in swing, jazz, and American popular standards from the 1920s-60s. Our entertaining and refined ensembles are popular with people of all ages and walks of life.

All of our musicians are trained and experienced professionals, most of which are degreed in music - up to the doctoral level. Members of our groups have shared the stage with world famous musicians from Memphis and around the globe. A great number of the musicians are also educators in the local public, private, and university systems.

Our goal is to provide high-quality entertainment, combined with professional service and unparalleled value. By dealing directly with the musicians, you can save as much as 15-20% and will have the added benefit of personal communication. When you call us, you can rest assured that the music for your event will be flawless and unforgettable.

Here are some of the exciting groups we have available:

Jeremy Shrader Combos
Great for listening or dancing - without overpowering.
:: The crooning vocals of Jeremy Shrader are featured in this intimate setting. Shrader also provides trumpet interludes and lively conversation. Solo performance and combos from two to seven pieces are available.

Jeremy and Michelle
Husband and wife duo will bring the love to your next event.
:: Jeremy sings and plays trumpet with his wife, Michelle (classical guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter), performing an array of styles and songs ranging from jazz standards, pop, and classical, to original compositions. They are also available with their jazz combos, from three to eight pieces.

Hot Jazz Combos
If you want a lively, Creole style party, then you need the Dixieland swing of this band.
:: The sound of Louis Armstrong ,“The Great Gatsby,” and 20's 'Hot Jazz'. Three horns, banjo, piano, tuba, and drums provide an authentic sound and their repertoire of swinging tunes will keep your guests of all ages smiling. This group is available in many configurations, from two to eight pieces.

Jeremy Shrader's Octocats
All the elegance and style of a big band, but on a smaller scale.
:: This band has four horns and a driving rhythm section, like the classic Hollywood wedding band. This is a smaller version of our popular big band, playing many of the same songs. This is great music for dancing and for delighting your guests.

New Memphis Hepcats
WOW them with this 16-piece stunner! Rat Pack, Big Bands, and more.
:: This is our flagship band, made for getting people on their feet! Whether you want the sophisticated swing of Ellington or the smooth vocals of Sinatra, this band can give it to you, with class to spare. The full horn section sound will add flair to your event, or make your wedding truly unforgettable.

J.S. Brass Band
Brass, boogie, and blues!
:: Memphis' only brass band, our music bridges the gap between Memphis, New Orleans, and beyond. Performing traditional brass band, dixieland, and other great party sounds, this high energy band is available for weddings, funerals, and everything in-between. Five to nine piece ensembles are available.

Big Barton
Classic country and western from the golden age of WSM radio.
:: The songs of Hank Williams, Ernest Tubb, Johnny Cash, and Pasty Cline bring an authentic southern charm to any event. Jeremy sings and plays guitar with some of the finest musicians in the area and some of the biggest belt buckles you've ever seen. Two to seven piece ensembles are available.

We set the standard!

Jeremy was so easy to work with! Anytime I sent him an email he was quick to reply and very professional. His band showed up on time and everything went smoothly with setup and the songs we requested. Also not to mention he is crazy talented as well as his band members. Our guests told us that one of the favorite parts of our wedding was the band. I had a friend tell me they felt like they were in a movie! My wedding was a true dream!! It was just lovely all around! Great guy and great band to work with! It was a classy affair!

Jeremy Shrader and The Hot Memphis Four were incredible! Every step of the way - from the booking to the communication to the performance, the band surpassed my expectations a thousand times over. I wish I could change my star ratings to 10. I would HIGHLY recommend hiring Jeremy for any function - these guys are top notch. It was a pleasure working with them and hearing them play. Their talent is amazing and just what we were looking for. I hope this review helps others when choosing to book this band - you will NOT be disappointed. Best of luck to Jeremy and his band, I hope they see and reap the rewards from the success they so much deserve.

Jeremy is wonderful! This is the second time my family has had the pleasure of having him play for an event. We couldn't have asked for a better band to play at my dad's 60th birthday celebration.

Jeremy Shrader and his band did a wonderful job. The music was perfect and we had a lot of complements on them. I have been in 7 weddings and heard a lot of bands, but these guys were by far the best. We had a number of guests ask about the band and comment on how they would enjoy to use them for future events.

I am so glad that we booked Jeremy and his group to perform at our client event. We were looking for an upbeat group with an old school flair that would keep the tempo of the event lively. We definitely found that in Jeremy and his group. We were very impressed with the group's professionalism and talents and would definitely recommend to others. Thanks again!

Jeremy was FANTASTIC. He is incredibly professional, while still being kind and laid back at the same time. Of all the details about my wedding that I had to juggle and worry about, the band was not one of them. After a few interactions with Jeremy, I felt fully confident in his ability to do a stellar job and take care of everything. And he did! He accomodated several special requests that I had, including letting one of my bridesmaids use his keyboard to play a piece during the ceremony. He also ran all our sound during the ceremony, which was a HUGE help. He and his band were fab during the reception-classy and fun. Everyone LOVED them and their music.
