Judy and her band are extraordinary! She was non stop entertainment from our ceremony to our reception. She is the best at what she does. When talking to Judy, it was like talking to a long lost friend. She knew exactly what I wanted and we actually spent hours on the phone. She even found, practiced, and performed an old chinese tune that had a lot of meaning to my parents and I. My husband I cannot thank Judy and her band enough. I was also worried that no one would dance during the reception, but she really got the crowd going. Even my 87 year old grandmother got on the dance floor and boogied. I am so happy to have found Judy and she really made the entire event memorable for everyone who attended the wedding. She went out of her way to coordinate with all my vendors to make sure everything went without a hitch. For all future big events I will definitely give Judy a call. For all those who are looking for a truly entertaining band with class and personality, give Judy a call.

Renowned singer/bandleader Judy Chamberlain and her band play swing music you can REALLY dance to! The Roaring Twenties, jazz and show tunes they play define Old Hollywood glamour, with a decidedly modern twist. Chamberlain does it all, sometimes int he same set!

"Mesmerizing!" All-Music Guide

At Judy Chamberlain Jazz & Swing, we're dedicated to helping you have a magical wedding that's uniquely your own. We LISTEN intently to what you tell us, then translate it into a fabulous musical soundtrack that reflects your tastes, your life and your love and the promise of your future together. World-class jazz musicians who play rock & roll, swing, pop, country and so much more, our versatile band members are internationally known. You've heard them on your favorite albums and seen them on many popular TV shows. Some are Grammy winners.

Our talented personnel have toured and recorded with Frank Sinatra, Ray Charles, Ella Fitzgerald, Tony Bennett, Dean Martin, Peggy Lee, Rosemary Clooney, Dinah Shore, The Temptations, The Commodores, The Supremes, The Platters, The Drifters, The Coasters, James Brown, Stevie Wonder, Quincy Jones, Aretha Franklin, Gladys Knight, Gloria Gaynor, Donna Summer, Marvin Gaye, The Isley Brothers, Herbie Hancock, Paul McCartney, Willie Nelson, Bette Midler, Diana Krall, Natalie Cole, Barbra Streisand, Norah Jones, Elvis, Chuck Berry and Michael Buble, to name just a few.

We play the glamorous, romantic and exciting music of the 1920's, 1930's, 1940's, 1950's, 1960's and 1970's. Think Irving Berlin, Cole Porter, George Gershwin, Rogers & Hart, Fred Astaire & Ginger Rogers, Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Nat King Cole, Bobby Darin, Louis Armstrong, Elvis, The Beatles, Michael Buble, Harry Connick, Jr. and Mad Men and you pretty much have the picture. Bands like ours don't really exist anymore, except perhaps in the movies.

"Chamberlain’s easygoing interaction with her listeners transforms celebrations into marvelously spontaneous events.” Don Heckman, Los Angeles Times

We're small enough to fit in a telephone booth, but prefer larger spaces whenever possible. We navigate parking lots, loading docks and site managers gracefully. We respect confidentiality, exclusive private estates, hotels, country clubs, event coordinators and party planners. Long-distance planning for destination and celebrity weddings is a specialty, and we often get the “first call" before the date has been set or the venue booked. In our hands and through the magic of live music, your entire wedding becomes a seamlessly-orchestrated Hollywood extravaganza.

It's no coincidence that many of our clients are entertainers themselves.

“Judy Chamberlain has mastered the art of mesmerizing both the audience and her own band.” All-Music Guide

“You’re just like the ‘Old Man,’ cookie.” Al Viola, longtime guitarist for Frank Sinatra

If Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, Rogers & Hart, Rogers & Hammerstein, George & Ira Gershwin, Johnny Mandel, Johnny Mercer, Fats Waller, Duke Ellington, Harold Arlen or Hoagy Carmichael wrote it, you can bet it's in our bottomless repertoire! We also adore anything associated with Fred Astaire & Ginger Rogers, Gene Kelly, Audrey Hepburn and cinema noir movies, and play all of that music, too! ALL of it!
