Whether you are looking to give your event a touch of elegance with classical music, or liven it up with your favorite jazz standards, you will be able to find the information you need here. We are all highly trained musicians with degrees from major conservatories, but when it comes time to lay down a bassline and jam on it, we have that covered too!

Marcie has years of experience performing for weddings, parties, recordings, concerts, memorials and all kinds of events. She only plays with the finest musicians: high quality, professional performers, who are chosen not only for their superior musical ability, but also for their positive attitude. We love what we do! We are reliable, well groomed, organized and prepared. We will always plan a program in advance and have the music put together in specialized event binders to minimize excessive page turning and pausing during ceremonies.

We will do our best to play the program that you choose. If you are not sure what you want, that's okay too. We know lots of music and can always help to make appropriate selections for you. And, we can play all kinds of music, including classical favorites, jazz standards, and any special requests that you might have.

Below are listings of the groups that are available, and the instrumentation for each one. Each group has a different sound. Listen to the samples to decide which group is best for your needs. Marcie and her fellow performers can improvise, which makes them more flexible than most.
