About Accidental Red

We are a five-member jazz ensemble and do combinations of duo, trio, quartet, and full band with piano, upright bass, drums, sax, flute, accordion, and female vocals. Our music is fun and engaging with Great American Songbook, elegant swing, bossa nova, pop, blues, and holiday music. All members are dedicated, lifelong, schooled musicians, each with over 30 years of extensive professional live performance experience at celebrations, weddings, and holiday events. We dress well and have a blast with our guests at every show. The music and the mood can change throughout the evening from gentle cocktail-hour ambiance to exciting female vocal driven swing that will inspire an active dance floor. We’ll work closely with you to make sure your event is a memorable and positive affair. We are happy to talk about the styles and song lists required to suit your needs. Eager to try new songs and arrangements, we can accompany your guests in performing a prepared piece, make announcements, emcee, or invite others to come up for speeches. We provide all sound equipment and tasteful stage lighting. You provide the guests. See several reviews in the Details tab under "What to Expect" then contact our drummer Ron Mangas to talk about what's possible. We look forward to hearing from you!

Kathy Farmer - vocals

Karin Slawinski – sax and flute

“Accidental Red came highly recommended by a restaurant that is also well known for the different music genres they offer so I trusted their judgement. Right at my first encounter, the band immediately knew what was needed for this type of event. The music despite it being a background one, was soft, yet engaging. At times, the rhythmic intensity was exciting but never overwhelming, and the different compositions were very effective as it provided a smooth transition between the tempos. Thank you, Accidental Red members for helping us making our Firm 40th Anniversary Gala a very memorable one.”

Lyne Lollichon, GREENBLUM & BERNSTEIN, P.L.C.

"We booked Accidental Red for Oktoberfest at Cascades Overlook Town Center and they were a BIG hit! The families who attended just could not get enough of their great music. Their performance is thoroughly professional, and the music is fantastic. They kept playing after the event ended since no one was leaving. We can’t wait to have them for another event."

Fred Snowden, MELADON GROUP, LLC

"Accidental Red was perfect! They are talented, pleasant, professional and accommodating. They did an excellent job performing at our "Jazz in the Park" event, and I received tons of compliments for having selected them. Everyone loved their music! In preparation for the event, they were extremely responsive and reliable. They brought their own equipment and accommodated our outdoor venue. They arrived well ahead of the event to set up, and played even longer than agreed upon. I strongly recommend Accidental Red and would definitely book them again."

Accidental Red performed for a summer concert for the Town of Occoquan and did a fantastic job! They were very professional in spite of rain delays. The crowd enjoyed their music immensely, as did I, and I do not typically like jazz! Their song choices were great and they engaged the crowd. Would absolutely hire them again!
