    So Happy we chose the Kensie Jazz Band!

    So happy we chose Julie and her amazing band for our wedding. From start to finish they were awesome! They played Jazz and contemporary music for us and even had a pianist with singer for our ceremony. Not only were they amazing, but they were really great to work with through all the challenges COVID presented. We had a couple of delays due to older family and COVID rules, but even through all of that they were more than patient and accommodating with us.

    In the end, thanks to the Kensie Jazz Band, we had a beautiful classy wedding everyone will remember. Thanks again!

    The Kensie Jazz Band's reply:

    Awwwe .... Thank You!! Thanda looked so beautiful. You make an amazing couple. Wishing you so much happiness and love together!! Julie

    Amazing from beginning to end

    They were awesome, we had a backyard wedding and they worked well with the atmosphere and ambience of the night. They showed up on time, set up quickly and played our cocktail hour and buffet dinner service. The neighbors even told us they had dinner on their patios so they could enjoy the music. Amazing all around

    Fantastic Experience

    We had the Kensie Jazz Band play the reception, and they also provided a piano player for the ceremony. The music was a big hit and everyone loved it. The musicians were very flexible and were able to perform one of my own compositions flawlessly.

    Additionally, communication with the band prior to the event was good. It was very clear what they needed and responses were very timely. I would highly recommend them.

    The Kensie Jazz Band's reply:

    Thank you so much Andrew! We, the band thought you were great as well. Excellent song choices and composing such a great tune for the first dance was amazing!! Happiness and Music Always.
    Best Wishes to you and your bride, The Kensie Jazz Band

    Fantastic Band - Would Recommend

    I am a wedding planner and I worked a wedding with The Kenzie Band today and they were fantastic! Super easy to work with and amazing sound!

    My clients hired a 3 piece band; piano, bass and saxophone. All 3 gentlemen playing were very nice, easy going and the guests loved the music!

    Would definitely recommend to future my clients :)

    Great band for our sailing regatta

    The band that Julie assembled for our sailing regatta was truly professional in many ways. They were impressively talented, played just the right music through the dinner into the evening for dancing and they played a variety of musical styles with apparent ease. The songs they chose spanned the 20's to 80's and some top 40. The business dealings were professional and painless. I received many rave reviews about the band from our members.

    The Kensie Jazz Band's reply:

    Thank you so much Tom!! Great to work with you. Hope to hear from you again.
