Great musicians, and great people

We had the Magnolia Jazz Band for our wedding on 05/18/2024 at the Elizabeth Gamble Garden in Palo Alto and we are so glad we did - in fact we keep talking about how we need to find another reason to hire them again! Our wedding guests raved about how good they were, and continued to talk about them after our wedding day.



Robbie was so communicative and helpful, and definitely knew his stuff! He did a great job of both taking our requests and offering helpful suggestions. He was able to help us pick songs for the ceremony, and we picked songs off of the band’s set list for the special dances. Other than that, we entrusted him to pick music to set the elegant, upbeat tone for the day and he did a great job. It was also very easy to work with him on logistics for moving between the patio for the reception and the porch for the ceremony (pictured). 



I would recommend the Magnolia Jazz Band to anyone looking for jazz music for their event. They were upbeat, fun, and incredibly responsive - I can't say enough good things.

Pure perfection in booking Magnolia Jazz Band!

If I could give Magnolia Jazz Band more than a 5 star review, I would in heartbeat!! We booked them for our wedding reception on 12/9/23 at the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco, and it was one of the best wedding decisions we made! From the moment I stumbled upon their website and Robbie's YouTube channel, I knew they were the perfect match for our occasion. Robbie and the band were easy to work with, replied promptly to all our questions, and showed us such kindness and professionalism during the planning process.

On the day of our 4+ hour event, their upbeat and elegant music truly set the tone for our special day. We gave them full autonomy and trust in their music selection and let me tell you- they did not disappoint! It was everything I dreamed of and more! Our family and friends absolutely loved the vibe the band gave us and are still raving about them weeks after our wedding!

I highly recommend the Magnolia Jazz Band to anyone who is thinking about booking live, jazz music for any event. I'm already looking for an excuse to party plan and book them again myself! We can't thank Robbie and the band enough. Their music was truly a highlight of our special day and I can't wait to make more memories together in the future!

Incredible professionalism and skill! Great experience!

What an incredible experience we had with the Magnolia Jazz Band playing for our wedding!

From the moment we started communicating with Robbie, we felt at ease - his thoughtfulness, responsiveness, and capability were evident in all of our interactions leading up to our big day!

Robbie took the time to ask the right questions in order to determine the mood we wanted to set for the wedding - which, through his help, we determined to be upbeat and romantic.

Robbie did a great job of both taking our requests and offering helpful suggestions.

On our wedding day, the band showed up well ahead of time, well prepared, and played incredibly well!

Their timing, of when they played everything they played, was impeccable. They learned songs that we requested - including the processional and a few other songs for the reception - and it was obvious there was a lot of preparation that went on behind the scenes leading up to the event.

We are still having guests comment on how they loved the music and the atmosphere that the band created.

We can't wait to create another event...even if it's not a wedding :) ... just to have a good excuse to book them again!

Thanks Robbie and Magnolia Jazz Band!
