“The perfect addition for our wedding. When guests weren’t on the dance floor (not very often) they were telling us how great they are. Amy does an amazing job of working with you in regards to organization and getting to know what you’re looking for.”

“I still have guests who attended our wedding tell me how much they enjoyed our band. In fact, they’ll let us know Yazz Jazz put on the best performance out of any other wedding they’d attended before. That’s how stellar this group is.”
