  • We were looking for a band for our wedding in the Philadelphia area that didn't feel like a typical "wedding band" - we listened to clips of a million different bands in the area and didn't click with any of them. Then we discovered the Nightingale Jazz Band and absolutely fell in love. We were thrilled when they agreed to travel from Brooklyn, and even created an arrangement for a Bob Dylan song we requested. Nora, the lead singer, was extremely accommodating and we had a great time chatting with her and planning the details of the event. Our guests absolutely raved about the band all night (and you know when your friends are all Instagramming videos of the band, it's a good sign). Best of all, they were so cool to let my dad (also a jazz musician) come in and play with them on a few songs, which gave the whole thing such a nice personal touch. Bottom line: If you like the videos on their website, you'll LOVE the Nightingale Band in person.

  • I don't have enough wonderful words to capture how amazing it work with and enjoy the music of Nightingale! They were incredibly responsive and professional from the start. We had multiple portions to our wedding -- a parade with trumpeter, a cocktail with just a few instruments and then an outdoor jazz set with full band -- and each request was met with enthusiasm and collaboration on how best to make it all work. They played a jazz version of our special song for our first dance that was just amazing! I also had been thinking about singing with the band, but didn't want to decide until the day of, and they were incredibly flexible in accommodating my wishy-washiness and allowing me to make the call day-of (I ended up not singing). Nora's voice is incredible and all of the musicians outstanding. We are SO happy we found Nightingale and would very highly recommend you work with these amazing musicians!

  • Nora, her keyboard and sax version of The Nightingale Jazz Band, played for our wedding reception. We are an older couple and decided to organize the whole thing ourselves. A lot of work for us.....except for hiring Nora and her band. The trio showed up and carried the tone of the evening much to the delight of all. We had little time to give her much direction except for suggesting a couple of tunes, and asking to somehow "carry" the room and evening and still have folks be to comfortably converse. They totally nailed it on all fronts. I have to say having such a capable band with such a gifted chanteuse is a +++ for any occasion. Its was nice to hear from our guests how much they enjoyed our reception.....and "where did you get that band?"

  • I found Alex and the Nightingale Jazz Band through a random google search and I cannot BELIEVE my google-luck that I found them! My husband and I hired the band to play 3-piece instrumental jazz music for my cocktail hour and reception (lunch @ the Brooklyn Winery), and we had Alex play solo piano for pre-ceremony music and our processional/recessional as well. Everything went absolutely flawlessly, both in the lead-up to the wedding and on the day itself. Alex very kindly met up with me before we committed to the band, so we could meet in person and talk out my questions. He also agreed to do extra legwork to get us a mic and mic stand for the ceremony/toasts (our venue didn't provide it), and he charged us an incredibly reasonable fee and handled all the setup and takedown for the extra equipment. Once we confirmed the hire, Alex worked directly with our venue manager, and I'm thrilled to say that I didn't have much to do with the logistics from there, thankfully! It was a tricky ...

  • They were amazing!!! I got married in September. I am also a wedding planner so I have seen a lot of bands. Nightingale blew me and all my guests away. They were so easy to work with, very accommodating and the music was awesome. They went above and beyond. I wish I could party with them every weekend. They were able to go from an intimate and romantic ceremony into am upbeat and awesome party. They are the best band! You need to hire them!

  • Couldn't be happier with the Nightingale Jazz Band. From the very first point of contact through the end of the event they were very professional, extremely accommodating, and responsive. We had a couple requests for songs to be played that were outside of their normal repertoire, and they happily played almost all of our requests, and even better than we had imagined it. Cant thank this band enough for bringing the good vibes to our engagement party and keeping people on the dance floor. I would highly recommend them for any event.

  • If you are searching for a band to perform at your wedding reception, contact Nightingale Jazz immediately. I guarantee you will not be disappointed. What an amazing group to work with. Everyone at our event raved about their musicianship, as during the night they provided many styles of music that got everyone involved. Usually at wedding receptions you have half the crowd dreading the music at one point or another, for either being too loud, too slow, too old fashioned, but I can honestly say that all we heard were positive comments. Nora Ritchie, who is an incredible singer, was our main contact, and was so gracious and easy to work with. In the months leading up to the wedding, she was willing to accommodate any special requests we had and even emceed the whole evening for us. Each member of the team was so professional in both skill and appearance, every one of our guests said they were one of the highlights of a fantastic reception. As a side note, it was so much fun when ... Read more

  • We very much enjoyed the Nightingale jazz band at our party. The musicians are extremely talented and professional. They contacted us very quickly when we called, showed up for our party promptly on time and were very accommodating with our songs list. The band added a wonderful atmosphere to our occasion. A lot of our guests complimented the band. We will highly recommend them and have band play for us again.

  • The internet has changed at least some things for the good. One for us was the chance to come across the Nightingale Jazz Band. Their sound in actual performance (at our wedding) was exactly as professional, pleasant, and stylish as when we discovered them online. Among the many usual polite compliments that we received after our wedding, the one ringing and consistent point of praise was the music. Many remarked on how cohesively the band played as an ensemble. Everyone was astounded by the vocal work of Miss Ritchie, whose rich and, dare I say, voluptuous voice sounded both classic and unique. Our first dance song was once of the best renditions of it we had heard. From a logistics end, they were a pleasure to work with. They were flexible with special requests; they coordinated independently with the site manager; and, hell, they trudged all the way from Brooklyn to Philadelphia and back with nary a complaint. This is not your bog-standard wedding band, people. My advice to young lo... Read more

  • Words can't described how happy I was with the choice to hire Nightingale. They were everything I thought they'd be from the video and more. Nora looked and sounded beautiful. Alex was super too. Easy to communicate with and organized. I received many, many compliments and everyone wanted to know how I found them. Thank you Alex and Nora for making my daughter's wedding a huge success. Sincerely, Marianne Shoecraft

  • I was looking for a jazz band for our wedding cocktail hour that would fit our speakeasy theme, keep all ages happy and create an elegant and entertaining environment. In that search, I found Nightingale Jazz Band.What set them apart was not only their sound, but their customer service. Alex is an absolute delight to work with; very professional and accommodating.I knew he and his bandmates would deliver the elegance and sophistication in which we were seeking and I could not have been more right. They were a huge hit with everyone and I continue to receive compliments about their performance. I hope I have an excuse to work with them again!

  • Nightingale Jazz Band is a group of incredibly talented musicians. They played at our wedding and we couldn't be happier with our choice. From the beginning they were extremely helpful customizing a play list for us, and making sure everything was running the way it suppose to. On the day of the wedding their performance was excellent and well received. They kept the party moving and didn't allow for a dull moment. So many of our guests approached us to rave about the band! They were an absolute pleasure to work with and we would highly recommend them for any event! Thank you guys for making our day extra special!!!
