I truly believe that nothing makes an event more memorable than live music. The West 79th Street Funk Jazz Band really exceeded my expectations in creating unforgettable moments for my attendees. What makes them different than other music groups I've hired in the past is their ability to really read a crowd and perform to the audience. One evening they were all Funk and Pop and really got my outdoor reception hopping. The following evening they were sultry and Jazzy and provided the perfect backdrop for our awards ceremony.  I can't wait to work with this group again in the future.

The West 79th Street Funk Jazz Band worked closely with us to to make sure our wedding was amazing! It was incredible how many compliments we got for the music - even the pickiest older people were complimenting the music left and right! LOVE THEM!!!
