Where you can find and book New York’s

Best Jazz and Salsa Bands for Events and Weddings


Why This? Why Us? Why Now?

Sophisticated Jazz and Sizzling Salsa are the two most-requested music genres today and are guaranteed to make any wedding or special event an unforgettable experience. Chances are you have already invested much time, effort, and emotion in preparation—you don’t want to leave the music to amateurs who ‘occasionally’ play Jazz and Salsa music only when requested.
You need a Professional. Someone who truly lives this music and can transfer that enthusiasm to you and your guests! No one leaves our performances unchanged!

The Professional

Bandleader Russ Nolan has performed 25 years-worth of Jazz and Salsa for Corporate Events, Weddings, Private Parties, Fundraisers, Art Gallery Openings, Wine Tastings, and Nightclubs. He has recorded 6 Latin and Modern Jazz CDs and has been active in both the New York Jazz and Salsa Clubs including popular venues such as Smalls Jazz Club, Jazz at the Kitano, Session 73, Taj Lounge, and Gonzalez y Gonzalez.
Called a ‘Renaissance Man’ by his peers, Russ has also gained experience in the corporate world with notable employers such as PG&E, State Farm Insurance, and Valero Energy as well as held an educational sales position with Gand Music and Sound. Socially conscious, he also volunteered as an after school mentor at New Song Learning Partnership in Harlem. With this diverse background, he sees an event both through a musician’s eyes—and yours.
View Live Jazz and Live Salsa videos from actual performances and see the bands through the eyes of real fans and guests. Why book a band with professionally-produced videos recorded in controlled, static rooms without real guests present?
