***NAMED ONE OF LA's TOP FIVE WEDDING BANDS IN by CBS Los Angeles!*** ABOUT THE BAND Winners of Gigmasters' Rising Star Award in the Jazz Trio category for four straight years (2010-2013) and again in 2015, the Sam Graham Trio was formed in 2002. Since then we have performed hundreds of gigs, from the hilltops of Los Angeles (The Getty Center) to the basements of New York (the Jazz Lounge at CBGB's), from restaurants and bars to open air concerts, private parties, weddings, corporate gatherings, and numerous other events. While we draw on an extensive repertoire of jazz standards popularized by Miles Davis, Duke Ellington, Wes Montgomery, Mose Allison, Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, and many more, we also explore our roots in pop and rock music with innovative and surprising (and swinging) adaptations of songs by Nirvana, Metallica, the Doors, Tom Petty, Neil Young, the Buffalo Springfield, and others. We can play jobs that call for an all-instrumental song list, all-vocal, or a combination of the two. All in all, it adds up to a singular style: JAZZ FOR MODERNS. Our group offers four musicians for the price of three, with bandleader Sam Graham handling both guitar and vocals. Although we usually perform as a three-piece (guitar-vocals, bass, and drums), we can add others musicians (including horns and keyboards) and singers as requested. ALSO: for those with more limited budgets, Sam Graham has also booked gigs as a guitar-bass duo. And if your space or your budget is really small, Sam also performs solo, either unaccompanied or with pre-recorded backing tracks featuring a complete jazz rhythm section. Please contact Sam for more information about this very viable option. You can hear audio samples of my solo work at our official website.

WeddingReviewed on September 24, 2022From Encinitas, CA

They were everything we could have wanted from a wedding jazz band. So professional and friendly not to mention beautiful and easy listening music that really elevated the space. Will absolutely be booking for any future parties.

Private PartyReviewed on September 17, 2022From Long Beach, CA

The trio provided a performance that my group highly enjoyed. They were the best and many now want to hire them for their functions. Very Satisfied with their outstanding show.
