The Americano Social Club is led by Michael Zisman on mandolin and features guitarist Jason Vanderford and bassist Joe Kyle Jr. We play music for "la dolce vita": a mix of romantic and eclectic melodies from all over the world.
At our performances you might hear Pop, Jazz or Folk, Classical, Rock, or Opera, the music of Brazil or of Europe's cafés, (not to mention some of our own dramatic original pieces); and all of it re-imagined so you will hear the melodies you love (or didn’t know you loved) like new again.
We perform at lots of parties, events and weddings during the year and play a wide range of music from many eras and in many styles with something for everyone to enjoy. We usually perform as a trio that both sings and plays but we can also add musicians and singers to best suit different events.
We've played events both big and small including parties for President Clinton, Gen Colin Powell, and Anne Hathaway's wedding, and we have played many brides and grooms down the aisle with their favorite songs :)
Our music is both interesting enough to engage listeners and light enough to serve as a soundtrack for your guests interactions. Our group sound is always transparent so guests can have a normal conversation right in front of the band and hear each other clearly.
We love to play events and create a fun atmosphere for people to relax and celebrate in so please let us know what we can do for you.

I love this band. They have a seemingly endless repertoire, and I love their arrangements and instrumentation. They are perfect for our holiday dinner parties. They are professional, friendly, talented and willing to help with my needs to make our event perfect. Every year they have new songs, which is always fun, and they are very easy to work with for scheduling and payments.Sent on 07/21/2015

We discovered Americano Social Club at Blush Wine Bar a few years ago in the Castro neighborhood. They are our favorite local band. They are a trio (Mandolin, Guitar, Contrabass) and play a jazz / gipsy jazz style music. They are great both as background music or as being the focal point, and they can give you the performance that best fits the setting and your preference!Sent on 12/12/2014
On my wife's birthday, I wanted to surprise her with a band and thought I'd give it a shot and send them an email. Their response was ultra fast, within minutes and they answered all my inquiries and were very flexible in accommodated possible changes.
The event was extremely entertaining for us and our guests, my wife was thrilled with the surprise and seemed really really happy. The music fit so well in the garden atmosphere and gave the whole event a very zen/chilled ambiance with a very strong romantic depth to it.
They had a stack of CDs with them and they offered them to me to distribute them to our friends. I went ahead and gave each guest a CD which will surely make this event even more memorable for everyone.
All in all, I couldn't recommend them more. They were flexible, very friendly, while professional and responsive. They are a reliable group that you can be sure will make your event a memorable and unique one.

We couldn't be more happy with our decision to hire Americano Social Club. We had them play at our wedding during cocktail hour, through dinner and our first dance. In addition to helping to create the most incredible atmosphere, they were polite, professional, easy to communicate with, and all around pleasant on and leading up to, a day that, at least as a bride, could be filled with some anxiety. Our family and friends continue to rave about them. The mood of the venue was reflected in their music; it was perfect. I will never forget seeing all of our family and friends join us at the end of our first dance. I am still touched by the feeling that day left me with and their music had so much to do with it.Sent on 12/11/2014
