Born out of the recession in 2009, The Recessionals Jazz Band began as a band of buskers in Washington Square Park where they cut their teeth playing hot and sweet jazz for the big apple. It was there in the park where they learned how to win over audiences and build their own performing style as a band, before moving on to audiences all over the east coast.Their album, Go For Broke, showcases the band playing classics jazz standards, gospel hymms, and fresh tunes inspired by the greats.
The band has performed at some of the most prestigious jazz haunts such as The Blue Note in New York City and Boston Swing Central, were pictured in the New York Times playing at a secret Bastille Day party hosted at The Shanghai Mermaid, and have been earning fans playing many of the jazz clubs in downtown Manhattan. A highlight included a performance at Louis Armstrong's House in Corona, Queens, NYC in summer of 2010. The Band can be seen performing frequently in Manhattan at Garage Restaurant, and Antibes Bistro.
In addition to performing club dates, the Recessionals are an experienced dance band who have played for many private events and weddings. Although they specialize in traditional jazz, they also perform a repertoire of jazz vocal standards performed in a contemporary jazz style with very talented female and male vocalists.

The Recessionals played at our wedding in April, and it was absolutely perfect. The guests loved them, and their jazz style worked for everything from light background music during the meal to dance music after. They arrived without a hitch and were very easy to work with. Everyone loved them and if we went back in time and were doing it all over, we would surely hire them again!Sent on 06/27/2016

The Recessionals Jazz Band were wonderful to deal with prior to, during, and after our corporate summer party. Torrential rains during the, thankfully, tented event notwithstanding, they were on time, and got people dancing and raving for four hours. While we did have a program set, they easily adapted to changes due to games and a number of speeches. Not only do they have a great repertoire, they are excellent musicians and extremely nice guys. Highly recommended for any event!

We hired The Recessionals for our wedding just outside Boston, and could not have been happier. Everyone had an amazing time, they kept us all dancing all night long, and we were so grateful to them for the amazing tone they set for our wedding. Working with them the months before was so easy-I always heard from them in a timely manner and they were very accommodating. We would definitely hire them again an would recommend anyone else hire them too!Sent on 10/31/2014
