Modern Vintage Swing for Jazz Weddings & Events
Nothing makes a wedding or event more fun than live music — especially when it’s jazz wedding or event music.
Jazz, swing and big band, Rat Pack — poolside in Palm Springs or in a ballroom in Pismo Beach — the best wedding music is rooted in a jazz sensibility. With overtones of midcentury, doo-wop, funk and soul, of course.
We’re not talking Miles Davis here, although we love Miles. He played a melody like nobody else.
Us, we never play anything the same way once. A room’s mood can change in the middle of a song.
Maxwell Anderson/Kurt Weill
Oh, it’s a long, long while from May to December
But the days grow short when you reach September
When the autumn weather turns the leaves to flame
One hasn’t got time for the waiting game.
Oh, the days dwindle down to a precious few
And these few precious days I’ll spend with you
These precious days I’ll spend with you.
September Song, by Kurt Weill and Maxwell Anderson
Kinckerbocker Holiday, 1938
