About The Milkman & Sons

I think your crowd would really enjoy the mix of acoustic Prohibition Jazz, Traditional Blues and Parisian Gypsy Jazz that my band plays. We change size and instrumentation depending on venue and budget but at the very least we have a great trio that adds the perfect ambiance to small dinner and drinks crowds without being too loud or obtrusive, but we can turn up the heat when needed.

The Milkman & Sons
Traditional Blues And Prohibition Jazz
Mixing originals with the classics and serving an assortment of acoustic instruments including vocals, harmonica, violin, guitar, bass and drums.

    Marcus and the guys were absolutely incredible during our cocktail hour. They played bluegrass and jazz on the fiddle, harmonica, bass and banjo and everyone commented on how wonderful they were. Unfortunately, we missed most of their performance; however, we had heard them at Melibea in Greenwich Village and fell in love with their style and flair.

    Marcus was great at working with us and being flexible to fit our needs. Overall, these guys are a fantastic band and they really set the mood for a rustic wedding.

    As a resident of New York City I discovered The Milkman & Sons years ago after stumbling upon them at one of my favorite downtown music/dining venues. Marcus Milius and his band's upbeat, jazzy-blues (or perhaps it's more bluesy-jazz) delivered such blissful, aural candy that they lured me to a half dozen performances around town over the ensuing years.

    Amidst the months long wedding planning process with my wife, we found ourselves at a cocktail lounge listening to the Milkman & Sons when the thought came to mind that these guys would be the perfect musicians to perform at our rehearsal dinner the night before our wedding. Having already selected a local "wedding band" for our Saratoga, New York nuptials we sought to create an ambiance at our rehearsal dinner where the band was prominently featured, but didn't require domineering, full-time MC duties. I approached Marcus at the end of their performance that night and he enthusiastically agreed to book our gig.

    Four months later The Milkman & Sons delivered with perfection and we honestly couldn't have anticipated a better outcome. Though there were many highlights and memories created throughout the wedding weekend, Marcus and The Milkman & Sons were instrumental (no pun intended) in executing on our vision. Marcus was professional and easy to deal with from signing a contract to mapping out our preferences to nailing down logistics...everything went seamlessly.

    I'm not sure how far away they're willing to travel, however, if it's within your geographical footprint I would highly recommend booking The Milkman & Sons for your event.
