Our goal is to provide premium live music for weddings and special events throughout the entire Tri-State Area. On the way to reaching that goal, we strive to have fun, and work in a professional manner that makes the planning of these events as simple, enjoyable, and stress-free as possible for our partners. If that sounds good, then we want to work with you!
Our performances feature energetic renditions of the most popular dance songs from all eras, which are guaranteed to get everyone up and dancing. We are interactive with your guests and our music is reactive to the celebration around us – a combination that creates an unforgettable musical experience for everyone! We are all really close friends in this band – having worked together in various combinations for years before this group as well. Our friendship and love for performing together really comes across in our performances. We love what we do together!
We are not an agency, and we are not represented by any agencies. You’ll be working with Joe Kaczorowski, our saxophonist and band leader, who genuinely loves planning the music for couples’ weddings.
Everyone has different tastes in music, but the people that we play for most often fit a profile similar to this: You’re probably looking for a broad mix of wedding music – a little bit of everything including Sinatra-style swing, Top 40, Motown / Classic Soul, 70s R&B, and 80s Pop and Rock, with an occasional classic rock, country, or ethnic request thrown in as well. Or, maybe you’re looking for a mix of music that’s focused heavily on Motown and Classic Soul. You’re likely not looking for a band that will play mostly Top 40, Classic Rock, or Country for your event. Most couples we work with usually have more of a Pop / R&B / Soul focus. You’re looking for a band that will make your guests dance all night, and that is extremely fun, organized and easy to work with. That’s what we do best!
The Kazz Music Orchestra features two of the best singers you will find anywhere and a band filled with top-notch talent. The musicians of the band have impressive credentials, including performing in Broadway and Off-Broadway shows, Presidential Inaugural Balls, headlining major NYC nightclubs such as B.B. King’s Blues Club in Times Square, The Blue Note, Lincoln Center, performing at area casinos including Mount Airy Casino and Resort and Empire Casino. Members of the band have also performed and/or recorded with such legendary artists as Aretha Franklin, The Temptations, ‘N Sync, Trace Adkins, Roberta Flack, Celine Dion, Diana Ross, Macy Gray, Bruce Springsteen, Kelly Clarkson, Harry Belafonte and others. But most importantly, the band has extensive experience in performing at and planning weddings and special events!
In 2014, we were hired by Nona Hendryx (of the R&B super group “The Labelles” that recorded the #1 hit “Lady Marmalade”) to be her backing band for a gala event. We were also asked to back up legendary singer / songwriter Valerie Simpson, who was part of the songwriting duo Ashford and Simpson that wrote tons of Motown / Soul hits including “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough”, “Ain’t Nothing Like The Real Thing”, and many others.
We have performed at weddings and events in the NYC area, the Philadelphia area, Boston, Providence, Long Island, NJ, the Hudson Valley, and Central NY (Ithaca and Colgate University), so we definitely travel! We have performed at many premier venues including The Rainbow Room, The Waldorf Astoria Hotel, Mohonk Mountain House, Larchmont Yacht Club, the Rosecliff Mansion, the Crane Estate, Cipriani’s Midtown, Glen Island Harbour Club, Mamaroneck Beach and Yacht Club, The Garrison, Crabtree’s Kittle House, Emerson Resort and Spa, and many other of the best Tri-State event spaces.
