Booked Jazz Retrospective for a Private Party
5.0   Verified review

The perfect jazz band! We booked Jazz Retrospective to play some background music at my party and they went above and beyond our expectations. They also had our guests blown away and stole their attention with their musicality & song choices. They were very polite and low maintenance, would love to see them again!
