I just love Anton Schwartz. He helped make our first dance really special and was really accomodating. And it doesn't hurt that he's an excellent musician!

Why settle for a "wedding band"?

You have hundreds of options for live jazz at your event.
Here’s one that isn’t like any of the others.

  PROOF is the creation of Artistic Director, Anton Schwartz. As a saxophonist and bandleader, he has headlined major jazz clubs and concert venues across the nation, released chart-topping CDs, and garnered rave reviews.
What’s so unusual, given the caliber of his music, is the breath of his skills. Anton is attuned to the many elements that make for a flawless event, and clients and event planners delight in his professionalism and upbeat demeanor.   Anton developed a passion for jazz music at a young age, studying with legendary saxophonists while in high school in New York City. He earned a B.A. in Math & Philosophy at Harvard, phi beta kappa, and a Masters at Stanford. But in 1995, while pursing doctoral research in Artificial Intelligence, Anton left academia to be a full-time musician. In the years since, Anton has won over listeners and critics at high-profile jazz venues across the country. Anton’s four CDs have received sterling reviews and strong airplay, with his most recent release reaching number four on the national jazz radio charts. Schwartz is on the faculty of the The Jazzschool and the Stanford Jazz Workshop and has been Artist-In-Residence at Harvard University and the Brubeck Institute.   PROOF specializes in small ensembles, from a solo pianist or guitarist to a quintet of saxophone, trumpet, piano bass and drums.   Visit our web site at
