The Internet has changed at least some things for the good. One for us was the chance to come across the Nightingale Jazz Band. Their sound in actual performance (at our wedding) was exactly as professional, pleasant, and stylish as when we discovered them online. Among the many usual polite compliments that we received after our wedding, the one ringing and consistent point of praise was the music. Many remarked on how cohesively the band played as an ensemble. Everyone was astounded by the vocal work of Nora Ritchie, whose rich and, dare I say, voluptuous voice sounded both classic and unique. Our first dance song was once of the best renditions of it we had heard. From a logistics end, they were a pleasure to work with. They were flexible with special requests; they coordinated independently with the site manager; and, hell, they trudged all the way from Brooklyn to Philadelphia and back with nary a complaint. This is not your bog-standard weddingband, people. My advice to young lovers is to wed now and book these musicians before they’re only fêting the rich and royal among us.
We are really lucky, happy and glad to have Nightingale to be part of our wedding. Alex was really easy to communicate with and really helpful in organizing all details for the wedding. Nightingale helped make the wedding a special joyful event to remember. We have received tons of feedback from our guests complimenting the band’s energy and musicianship. We all enjoyed it. Thank you so much for working with us and making our special day truly memorable!
Words can’t described how happy I was with the choice to hire Nightingale. They were everything I thought they’d be from the video and more. Nora looked and sounded beautiful. Alex was super too. Easy to communicate with and organized. I received many, many compliments and everyone wanted to know how I found them. Thank you Alex and Nora for making my daughters wedding a huge success. Thank you too gig masters for helping me find them.
Your performance at the Metropolitan Club was outstanding! You really created the mood and ambience that we were looking for. You seem like you’ve all been playing and performing from an era gone by. Bravo!!!Keep filling the air with beautiful music!I loved your performance so much that I knew you would be perfect for an intimate dinner party just a few days later, and I was right! You lend a charming & sultry vibe to any setting.
I hired Alex and nora to play for a party of around 400 people , and they were great. Their sound was superb , the playlist we discussed was executed beautifully . The crowd loved them. And I as well enjoyed every song played. I would definitely recommend Alex and Nora for your next event.
I was looking for a jazz band for our wedding cocktail hour that would fit our speakeasy theme, keep all ages happy and create an elegant and entertaining environment. In that search, I found Alex and Nora.What set them apart was not only their sound, but their customer service. Alex is an absolute delight to work with; very professional and accommodating.I knew he and his bandmates would deliver the elegance and sophistication in which we were seeking and I could not have been more right. They were a huge hit with everyone and I continue to receive compliments about their performance. I hope I have an excuse to work with them again!
Alex and Nora, and their band-mates are a group of incredibly talented musicians. They played at our wedding and we couldn’t be happier with our choice. From the beginning they were extremely helpful customizing a play list for us, and making sure everything was running the way it suppose to. On the day of the wedding their performance was excellent and well received. They kept the party moving and didn’t allow for a dull moment. So many of our guests approached us to rave about the band! They were an absolute pleasure to work with and we would highly recommend them for any event! Thank you guys for making our day extra special!!!
Just a quick note of praise for Alex & Nora. I was looking for a jazz band for a 95th Birthday celebration in the Hamptons. Through my endless searches for a jazz band with a female vocalist who could pull off a “Billie Holiday” sound, I found Alex and Nora’s website. The audio clips were enough to convince me I had found what I was looking for! Alex was extremely responsive to all of my questions and requests, and they even learned a few songs that are not in their usual play list. Every guest commented on Nora’s “amazing” voice and how fantastic it was to have a live band at the party. They were beyond professional and I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them!
When we told people we found Alex and Nora on-line through a company called Gigmasters 1 month before the party - they couldn’t believe it. A band of their quality usually takes many many months to find. We feel very fortunate that Alex and Nora played for our 1st Wedding Anniversary party. It was a very special evening for my wife and I and they really helped make it perfect. Professionals from start to finish! If you’re looking for some amazing Jazz to help set the mood at your party - look no further!
I came across Alex & Nora; as I was bidding for another band. I got a chance to speak to Alex a few times and actually went to one of their live gigs at a cafe before making a final decision. It was hearing them live that made my decision that much easier. Each of them have such an amazing talent. Over time, I got a chance to speak with Alex several times to work on what I wanted for my special day including Alex learning other sheet music to play during my wedding ceremony. I am so glad we got Alex&Nora; on our wedding day. I received so many compliments from our guests. They sounded great, looked great and I would highly recommend them to anyone!
Alex and the band played at our wedding. They were absolutely fabulous, and helped set a warm and festive tone throughout the evening. They are very talented and their music enhanced our special night.
