Sierra Jazz Band group formats: Jazz Trios - guitar, flute/sax and Bass Jazz Quartet - add vocals or drums Jazz Quintet - add vocals and drums (other configurations are possible)
The Sierra Jazz Band plays standards from the 30's to the 90's, in the styles of jazz, latin, blues, swing and more. Our traditional configuration features sax/flute, guitar, upright bass and drums. For a contemporary sound (funk, blues, rock) we use electric bass & guitar. We can add a vocalist, keys or another horn, or break it down to a trio. If you would like classical for the ceremony and jazz for the reception, see our Mixed Ensemble for more possibilities.
The video above gives a good example of the Sierra Jazz Band. Below are some extra "LIVE" tracks of the Sierra Jazz Band recorded at New Years Eve dinner at the Elderberry House on a field recorder. They contain some background noise and are not quite of studio quality.
