Thank you so much for helping to make my daughter's wedding reception such a memorable day. The 3 piece band, who performed a delightful selection of well known jazz pieces, sounded amazing, looked so smart and were talked about by so many of the guests. They struck exactly the right tone my daughter was hoping for at her wedding and we can't thank them enough.
Mat, whom I dealt with from the first contact, was very professional and i would not hesitate to recommend this incredible band to anyone looking to add a 'touch of class' to their celebrations.

    An example of “The MPR Jazz Ensemble” Song list is below. 

    A nightingale sang in Berkeley Square
    All blues
    All of me
    All the things you are
    Angel eyes
    Autumn leaves
    Beautiful love
    Black Orpheus
    Blue bossa
    Body and soul
    Bye bye blackbird
    Can’t get started
    Cheek to cheek
    Come fly with me
    Don’t get around much anymore
    Don’t worry about me
    Drop me off in Harlem
    Everything happens to me
    Embraceable you
    Exactly like you
    Fly me to the moon
    Foggy day
    Gee baby ain’t I good to you
    Georgia on my mind
    Girl from impanima
    Have you met Miss Jones
    I got rhythm
    I love you
    I remember you
    In a sentimental mood
    It had to be you
    I've never been in love before
    Let there be love
    Let’s fall in love
    Like someone in love
    Lover Man
    Lullaby of Birdland
    My funny valentine
    Night and day
    On green dolphin street
    One note samba
    Our love is here to stay
    So what
    Softly as a morning sunrise
    Someday my prince will come
    Song for my farther
    Stella by starlight
    St. Thomas
    Stormy Monday
    Takin' a chance on love
    Take the A train
    Take 5
    What is this thing called love
    What’s new
    You made me love you
    You make me feel so young

    And many more.
