Campbell's Jazz Soup

Based in San Rafael CA

Campbell's Jazz Soup is a San Francisco Bay Area based band that plays a fun blend of 1920s, 30s, 40s, and 50s jazz and swing at events, parties, festivals, and weddings throughout Northern California and beyond. Leader Brian Campbell serves up a tasty stew of hot clarinet, swinging saxophone, and hearty vocals. Mixed in to provide a feast for the ears is bluesy guitar and driving string bass. We play everything from mellow background jazz to upbeat danceable swing.

The band can perform with up to seven members by including trumpet, piano, drums, and/or trombone. Our most popular sizes are the trio (composed of sax/clarinet/vocals, guitar, and bass), the quintet (add trumpet and piano or drums to the trio), and the sextet (add trumpet, piano, and drums to the trio). If you want to dance we highly recommend hiring our quintet or sextet.

For over two decades we've played many events throughout Northern California including weddings, festivals, parties, corporate functions, and much more. We hope to play for you at your next event! References available upon request.

PS: Looking for Dixieland? We can do that too! Contact your Talent Coordinator for more info.
