About
Great music can be a rare commodity, yet sets the tone for any event. Upbeat Jazz/George Farrell Group performs a wide variety of music, ranging from traditional to contemporary jazz, fusion and smooth jazz. In addition to Sinatra, Cole Porter and George Gershwin, we also include various Latin and Brazilian selections by artists like Jobim and Tito Puente, Pop/rock of the Beatles and R&B/Motown sounds of Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye. We usually work as an instrumental trio or quartet, but we can add a vocalist to the group if necessary. We are happy to work with you and customize our musical selections to your taste. In addition to many live appearances, we have appeared on "TV Diner" on New England Cable News and "Jazz Talk" on Rhode Island cable TV. Let us set the perfect tone for your event!

George and his group were an incredible addition to our wedding event during the cocktail hour. His band worked with us to select a great playlist and his team is very capable of performing a wide variety of songs. We received many complements on the band from our guests and it really added a nice ambiance to the overall event. I would definitely hire George and his group again.

We had a number of conference calls with George directly to review a playlist of songs and styles of music that we like and our wishes were completely accommodated. The trio was exceptional and was enjoyed by us and our guests. Most extraordinary is that the trio truly enjoyed playing for us and that the relationship was such that it appeared as if we all had known each other for many years. The performance for us was flawless and comfortable, played with the utmost of professionalism and yet they were all personal and approachable though out the evening. if there were a 6 star rating, we would provide them with this. Bravo.

The musicians from George Farrell Group really impressed us and our guests at the Residence Inn by Marriott Boston-Needham's Grand Opening Event. George is very professional and easy to get in contact with throughout the entire process- he was even flexible enough to work with our budget. The band was able to accommodate our small space, and filled the room with lovely jazz music that best suited the occasion. It was just the right volume so that guests were able to mingle and network with each other. I would definitely recommend them and have them play at an event here in the future.

We were VERY pleased by the group George put together and all the little extra attention to details and the thoughts he gave to our wedding. At the last minute he added a saxophone player for an additional hour, knowing that I love the sax. The band was flexible and very professional. Great music, great night! Everybody loved them!

The George Farrell Group was a wonderful addition to our yearly fundraiser. The guests loved the upbeat music that they played during our cocktail hour and throughout dinner. The band was very accomodating during the event, and went with the flow when the schedule changed slightly. Great group to work with, and I have already booked a second event with them!

We were really pleased with the trio's performance at our wedding ceremony and reception. In addition to setting a great tone for our reception, the musicians were especially good in interacting with the children at the event. We had some specific requests for keyboard music during the ceremony, and despite our not having a rehearsal, keyboardist Steve Hunt did a great job making it happen flawlessly. George was very responsive, friendly, and easy to work with throughout. We would recommend them for sure!
