Conservatory Classic Jazz Band Testimonials
"I'd like to express my appreciation to you and the other members of the band for your fabulous performance for our Mardi Gras party. The music was just what we had hoped for--that real New Orleans sound and swing. It got everybody onto the dance floor--a real accomplishment for this group! Many people have spoken to me, both at the party and since, saying how wonderful you were and that you must play for us next year! I'd also like to thank you for the many extra things that you did to ensure the success of the evening, such as visit the Club before the party to plan the placement of the band, and learning two new pieces that I had requested. I'll never forget your rendition of the Royal March from Aida, just slightly jazzed up as the King and Queen paraded. It was a pleasure to work with you. In addition to the great music, you were so accommodating and professional. I would be happy to recommend the Conservatory Classic Jazz Band to anyone."
