Based in San Francisco, California, the Cosmo Alleycats Band is a full-service private event band that performs regularly at weddings and private events throughout the Bay Area and Northern California. We perform a potent mix of VINTAGE style dance music - including 1920s-1950s Jazz, Swing, Big Band, New Orleans Jazz, 60s R&B, Soul, and Motown - with a dynamic, soulful delivery. Our performance repertoire also extends to Klezmer music, Popular, and Contemporary music, all of which is adapted to our unique vintage sound and instrumentation.
The Cosmo Alleycats Band is a perfect choice for wedding celebrations of all sizes. We provide an elegant musical backdrop that won't interfere with luncheon/dinner conversation, while providing the right spirited energy for the occasion. When the moment is right, we have the repertoire and approach that will get your guests to the dance floor as we raise the energy level and intensity to the level you feel is right for your vision and your chosen venue.
Our 5 and 6-piece band configurations are the most typical choices for wedding celebrations. For smaller or acoustic weddings, our band can be reduced to 4-pieces, and for larger events, we can expand to 7 pieces. Our core instrumentation is: Piano/Keyboard/Hammond Organ - Upright Bass - Drums -Saxophone/Clarinet/Flute - Female Lead Singer - Trumpet (optional).
We know that every wedding celebration is unique. When it comes time to coordinate with you and/or your event planner, you will find us adaptable and very easy-to-work-with. Our goal is to ensure a successful and memorable soundscape for your event and to give you the confidence - before, during, and after your event - that you have chosen the right band for your wedding.

We hired the Cosmo AlleyCats for our wedding August, 2017. They were fantastic!! Emily was very responsive to requests prior to the event, and on the day of, the band was just incredible. We received tons of praise from our guests. Throughout the cocktail hour and dinner, they contributed a great atmosphere, and after dinner they were lots of fun to dance to. They did a good job with songs that they learned for our spotlight dances and procession/recessional. We highly recommend them!

Emily Day and the Cosmo Alleycats were fantastic. They were fairly priced, flexible, professional and a joy to work with. Our wedding venue had some pretty strict noise limitations, so I was initially worried that this happenin' swing band might not be danceable, but they made it happen and had everyone on the dance floor. I can only image how awesome they'd be at a venue with no noise limitation and her fantastic voice at high volume! Emily was super organized and put my mind at ease come wedding day. She was so generous with her time, to the point of walking me through how my own processional would go! Highly recommend.

Cosmo AlleyCats KILLED it at our wedding. We had them play through cocktail hour and dinner, and our guests were completely enamored with Emily's performance style and the band's amazing sound. We're still hearing from our guests how much they loved the band! They completely set the vibe we were looking for and were such a joy to communicate with.
Truly, if you're looking for a jazz/swing band for your wedding - you can't get any better than this group.
