Timeless music to evoke the excitement and romance of a bygone era

The Usonia Jazz Band specializes in jazz and swing from the 1920’s, 30’s and 40’s. Our music can add just the right atmosphere to your event, from elegant cocktail parties to swing dances to Mardi Gras parades. Whether you are planning a casual afternoon party or a formal ballroom affair, your guests will be delighted by the effervescent and polished sounds of our group.

Our musicians are recognized as some of the finest in this genre; our collective experience includes performances at the Monterey Jazz Festival, the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival and the Smithsonian, tours of Europe and Japan, and work on cruise ships and at jazz festivals and clubs throughout the US. From San Francisco to San Diego we can provide excellent bands of many sizes. Danceable music is our specialty; our musicians have played in some legendary swing clubs, including the Club Deluxe and the Great American Music Hall.
