About The James Zeller Trio

The James Zeller Trio's fantastic repertoire is a unique and entertaining mix of swinging Jazz and American Songbook classics from the 1920's-50's. At weddings we perform the timeless love songs of our chosen genre, music that is guaranteed to please a crowd.

We are a full time working band with a huge song list. We take pride in our work as musicians and entertainers. Beyond our ability onstage, we are classy, professional, experienced in the wedding business, punctual, well dressed and easy to work with.

I'm happy to answer any question, or work with you on any specific detail to customize our performance for your special day. If you don't see a song you love on our list, please inquire. Besides Jazz we also play covers by artists like Willie Nelson, The Beatles, Sam Cooke and Van Morrison.

Our trio's instrumentation is trombone/vocals, guitar, and upright bass. We also perform in larger ensembles by adding clarinet, cornet/trumpet and/or drums. For classical music at ceremonies, violin may be added.

The James Zeller Trio perform on Friday nights at "Bar Pleiades". We have performed for GM, Thomson Rueters, Conde Nast, Macy's, Ted Baker London, The Heritage Foundation, Stoli Vodka and at such venues as: The National Arts Club, The Metropolitan Room, The St.Regis Hotel, La Bernardine, The River Cafe, The Lambs Club, Trump SoHo, Bar Boulud, The Rainbow Room, dB Bistro Moderne, The W Hotel, The Union League Club, The Links, The Union Club among others.

    We had a very intimate elopement and knew from the start we wanted a jazz band to be a key part of our outdoor NYC ceremony. James and the band were an absolute pleasure to deal with, they had the best repertoire from any jazz bands I've come across and were able to play all the songs we'd hoped for (even some more unusual ones) and they did so beautifully and with ease. They were really accommodating and flexible, which made them a pleasure to liaise with in the lead up to the wedding. One of the standout moments of my ceremony was an impromptu additional song from them, as the sun shone and they sang a gorgeous version of 'Wonderful World' I couldn't have asked for a more perfect moment and one I'll never forget. I'm from the UK but so pleased I came across the band and wouldn't hesitate in recommending them to anyone else (and I'm in the wedding industry myself so have very high standards!). Thank you to James and the band for making our ceremony so special and everything we'd hoped for.

    Indian Wedding x American Songbook!!
    These guys played the cocktail part of our Indian Wedding. They were swinging and brilliant. Low volume so people could talk, and swinging enough that people could dance. It was so good we couldve extended the cocktail portion for another hour, easily. They arrived an hour before they were to play, and were easy to set up. Im a musician and very critical, I highly recommend the James Zeller Trio.

    We hired The James Zeller Trio on a lark after hearing them play at a cafe that we were having brunch at in NYC. I wish I could give them more than five stars, because they were absolutely fantastic in every regard! Before our wedding, they were highly responsive via both phone and email, we discussed the logistics at-length, they worked well with our wedding coordinator, and were highly professional throughout.

    On the day of, we had them play our cocktail hour in a somewhat small library space at the St. Regis New York. We originally planned on them just providing background music, but to our surprise they became the talk of the party! Everyone kept coming up to us saying how much they loved the music and how "cool" the band was. After the cocktail hour, they moved to our ballroom and played throughout our seated dinner before we shifted to a DJ for the party. During this time, they played our first dance song (which we specially-requested and they practiced ahead of time), even adjusting the tempo of the song to the dance that we painstakingly learned.

    From end to end, we loved this band and will be hiring them again if we ever need some music at any event in the future. I cannot recommend them highly enough! I'd say they were probably the single best "bang for our buck" out of any vendor we had at our wedding.
