Words cannot even describe how amazing my experience was with Yazz Jazz but I am going to try. Rewind to some night back in January about 9 months before my wedding, it was the first time I spoke to Amy, immediately every worry and concern melted away and I felt like I was... Read More talking to someone I had known for years! She knew exactly what I was going for and that she could help achieve it, then once we started talking prices, I was sold. While dealing with her for the next few months, she was prompt to respond to any emails, and any concerns I had (especially the ones that were because I was an emotional ball of craziness at a few points). They were quickly figured out because Amy has been doing this for a while and I had my full confidence in her. Fast forward to the wedding: they sounded AMAZING, I mean this band freakin rocks. They had men in my family that refuse to dance, on the DANCE FLOOR! My wedding was 3 weeks ago but I am still having people message me on Facebook or call me and say how amazing the band was and it was the best wedding they had been to. They made my wedding! Overall I cannot even say enough good things, I would recommend them to anyone or actually insist on having them as your wedding entertainment! Thanks Yazz Jazz for making my wedding the best!

You need to use Amy and Yazz Jazz for your wedding, and here is why. I am a detail-oriented person by nature with responsibilities for event planning in my career, and Amy matched my needs with her responsive, professional approach to providing amazing music throughout our... Read More wedding. Armed with a list of suggested musicians from Hotel Arista / CityGate where our wedding was held, we noticed that Amy and her band were performing at a local restaurant. We went to see them and were hooked with the ability of those three musicians to hold a bar and dinner crowd captive with an admirable array of songs. We booked Amy soon after, increased the number of musicians and then added the Yazz Jazz DJ as well. Along every step of the way, Amy was the consummate professional, helping us refine our plans to create the complete experience we envisioned, and never disappointing with her clarifying questions, prompt responses and fair pricing. We had the ceremony and reception in the same venue, utilizing the patio for the cocktail hour while the facility changed the room over for dinner and dancing. Amy and a keyboardist provided our ceremony music. As we moved out to the cocktail hour, other bandmates seamlessly performed until Amy and the keyboardist could join them. The entire group then transitioned back for our dinner music, until it was the DJ’s turn to take the night. He was as great as the rest of Yazz Jazz – he had everyone from teens to 85 year olds up and moving for hours. Music always provides the hook to our memories and certainly you want this day to be memorable for you, your wedding party and your guests. Involving Amy and the complement of Yazz Jazz professionals will provide you just that. Immediately after our wedding, we received thank you cards from several of our guests – seriously! – and all of them mentioned the emotionality of the day and the music throughout every part of the evening. We can’t wait to have another event where we can use Amy’s talents! Book her now before she’s not available—you will be ecstatic with the results.

I met Amy of Yazz Jazz Entertainment in January of 2016 and instantly fell in love with her personality and professionalism. Planning my May 2017 wedding with Amy was one of the most joyous and honestly, the most pleasant parts of the whole thing. It was like planning a wedding... Read More with a best friend who had been through it before. She was there every step and misstep with patience and understanding. We met a few times to go over details and Amy was always at the ready with suggestions for bridal salons, makeup artists and more. I trusted Amy to select a DJ that would mesh well with our tastes and personalities, and she did NOT disappoint. JC was 5 stars and more. On the day of our wedding, I would have been lost without her. She even helped me pull off a surprise for my husband. If you’re in need of affordable, top quality DJ services, Amy, JC, and Yazz Jazz Entertainment has you covered.

Yazz Jazz Entertainment was unimaginably magnificent. My husband and I love live music and we decided we wanted live music at our wedding and reception. We chose Yazz Jazz because my husband (who works in the hospitality industry) had heard them perform at a previous wedding and... Read More said thought they were pretty good. I trusted him and I am so glad I did! From the very beginning, Amy and her team were professional and exceptional! Their experience with weddings and receptions truly shows and they work hard to make the planning process very easy and stress-free. We chose the 7 piece band and DJ package. They provided the music and microphones for the wedding, live music for the cocktail hour, and all of the music for the reception. The band went out of their way to learn several songs and modified some songs that we had requested. I can't say enough about how professional they were, but I can never explain in words their talent. The entertainment they provided was priceless. The quality of their music, sound, and shear breadth of their repertoire was unbelievable. Our guests danced and celebrated the night like we had never expected. We cannot not possibly have had a better wedding and Yazz Jazz truly made it happen.

Yazz Jazz was by far the best decision that we made when it came to selecting our wedding vendors! Amy was very professional and helpful from day one. She was super flexible and allowed us to wait on finalizing our exact package until closer to the date while still holding our... Read More date. She was great with helping us pick the perfect DJ for our wedding as well. She was absolutely correct that Dave was a great fit for us! Dave was amazing to work with as well. He was great about discussing what we were looking for and completely accommodating it. We made a playlist of suggested songs, but ended up telling him that we trusted his judgement. He did an incredible job of reading the crowd and playing each song at the perfect moment. Our guests were raving about the music and he had the dance floor packed the entire night. He even recorded our sparkler exit for us since our videographers had already left for the night! We had some major issues with our venue right before the wedding due to staff turnover. My fiance and I were very nervous about how the day would turn out since the venue was such a mess. Amy and Dave came to one of our meetings at the venue and completely took care of everything! They took charge and turned our wedding into the event that we hoped it would be! I truly believe that our wedding would not have been the event that we were looking to have without Yazz Jazz and I cannot thank them enough for their help. If you are considering using Yazz Jazz, look no further. It was the best decision that we made for our wedding and I would recommend them to anyone!

First, Amy is amazing! She really made me feel comfortable because I was an out of state bride. She was very flexible to accommodate my schedule whenever I was in town. Amy was honest and reliable. When I began my search for a wedding band I learned (from reading many reviews)... Read More that just because you see a band at their showcase, doesn't always mean they will ALL be performing at your wedding. Amy promised me at our first meeting (performance), "What you see is what you get!" and she was right. The band was great!

Yazz Jazz was worth every penny and worth the many debates with my husband. He is so happy that we went with a band and not a DJ.
