Kazz Music Orchestra

Based in Astoria NY

We are a premier wedding/party band featuring two of the best vocalists around. The Kazz Music Orchestra plays everything from Motown to contemporary dance club music music, and everything in between., including Swing, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, Disco, Funk, Pop, R&B, and today's big hits!

Members of our band have performed at places including headlining shows at B.B. King's Blues Club in Times Square, Disneyland, Lincoln Center, in Broadway and Off-Broadway shows, major cruise lines and casinos, at tropical island resorts, and most importantly, at hundreds of private parties, weddings and special events. Our band members have performed with such legends as Aretha Franklin, Roberta Flack, Celine Dion, Dianna Ross, and The Temptations to name a few. With such an impressive resume, you know we can put on a good show!

In addition to top notch music, we pride ourselves on detailed planning with our clients in order to make events flow incredibly smoothly - something past clients have greatly appreciated! We utilize a proprietary wedding planning document that covers EVERY detail you'll need to think about from song selections, to phonetic pronunciations of bridal party names, and everything in between. We aim to make planning the music and announcements for your wedding as simple and fun as possible!

Our instrumentation can be varied to meet our clients' budget and space considerations. Our full 9 piece band consists of male and female singers, keyboards, guitar, bass drums, trumpet, sax, and trombone, yet we are flexible enough to perform as small as a 6 piece band using only 1 singer and 1 horn player. By request we will gladly quote clients prices for these various instrumentation options.

We can professionally cover your ceremony and cocktail hour needs. Our keyboardist, Andrea Shaut, is also an incredibly talented classical pianist - currently the pianist for the world famous West Point Military Academy Glee Club. She has experience playing at hundreds of wedding ceremonies. We can also add instrumentalists or vocalists for the ceremony as well.

For your cocktail hour, we can provide options including solo piano (jazz or classical), sax / piano duet, jazz trios (horn, guitar, bass), jazz quartets (horn, guitar, bass, drums), or even small R&B/jazz combos (vocals, guitar, bass, drums). All of our cocktail hour options will provide great background music for your guests to enjoy!

"The band was awesome! We were thrilled. Your lead singer is off the hook. Numerous people said she was a dead ringer vocally for Aretha Franklin. We were so happy with the music. Your rendition of True Companion was beautiful. I know it's kind of a cheesy song, but it didn't sound at all that way when you did it. Not sure if you saw, but I was crying. It was so beautiful and conveyed so much of the emotion I was thinking that night. We absolutely noticed all the little touches you did. The fact that on your own you decided to do a U2 song and chose Angel of Harlem no less was amazing. That is one of my favorite songs and I always joke to Allen that I'm his angel of Harlem. How you knew this had special meaning to me, I don't know, but it was really special for me that you did this. All of our special request songs were great. New York, New York was awesome.

We could not have been happier with the music at our wedding. It was a real pleasure working with you leading up to the wedding. You were very organized and responsive. You have no idea how much of a godsend that is while planning a wedding (well probably you do). It gave us so much confidence. If you ever need a recommendation, please don't hesitate to ask. We would recommend the band in a heartbeat." - Nicole and Allen – Middletown, NY
