    Mother of the bride

    Stan saved the day by agreeing to play for my daughters reception dinner with only a 2- day notice! He knew exactly what our group needed and even played the bride and groom’s a first dance Elvis request without any advice notice. We highly recommend D
    Stan and would not hesitate to book him again in the future.

    Easiest vendor decision we made

    We couldn't be happier with Stan and the role he played in our wedding. From the start he was always so responsive and easy to communicate with. There are so many decisions and tasks you have to juggle when planning a wedding but Stan made booking the music a breeze - it was one of the least stressful and easiest items to coordinate because of him. A true professional, he required no direction on the day of the wedding - he just seemed to know exactly what was going to happen and was ready to play his role. The cocktail hour setup ended up spreading our guests into different rooms at times and our placement for where Stan would play wasn't perfect. Without missing a beat (no pun intended) he grabbed his guitar and was walking from room to room, being sure all our guests were serenaded with music while they mingled - it was perfect. His ability to adapt and improvise depending on what was happening around him was such a relief. It took the pressure off our shoulders and just let us enjoy the wedding with everyone else. Finally, he's incredibly talented. All of the professionalism and experience would be irrelevant if he wasn't a great musician. However Stan's music was a hit and created the perfect ambience. We received multiple comments from guests throughout the night about how wonderful the music was. We're so happy we found Stan and would highly recommend him to anyone who asked.

We have had the pleasure of working with Potomac Jazz Project. Working with groups of musicians can be difficult sometimes, but the gentlemen in this quartet were some of the nicest people you could meet. Some musicians have a bad reputation that they take over spaces, move things around and can be surly. That is not Potomac Jazz Project. Now, to their playlist, you couldn't ask for a better variety of setting the mood and playing to the crowd. Smiles on their faces while they were playing, you knew the performers were having a great time and that radiated to the crowd. We're happy to recommend Potomac Jazz Project to our clients who are looking for live musicians to play at their event.
