***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.

Private PartyReviewed on December 30, 2023From Newport Beach, CA

These guys were sensational! Even better than I anticipated. So grateful for their professionalism and how easy they were to work with. I will definitely hire them for my next event. Thank you to the Sam Graham Trio!

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on October 23, 2023From Glendale, CA

We hired Sam to play at my grandfather's 85th birthday brunch this past weekend at Oakmont Country Club and he did a wonderful job! He was very responsive to all of my emails and questions! He showed up on time and ready to play! He really did a great job overall and really created a fun joyful vibe at the event! I will be using Sam again in the future!

EventReviewed on March 26, 2023From Altadena, CA

Consummate professionals! Sam and his band were absolutely fantastic. They arrived early, set up quickly and played the perfect mix of ambient background music. However, if you're a jazz fan like me, it was also great to be able to just sit and listen to their excellent work. The musicians were top notch and when they were done, they also cleared the stage quickly. They provided the music for our fundraiser auction and they were fantastic.
