New York Confidential features great sounding jazz combined with excellent service at a competitive rate.

New York Confidential is a sophisticated change from the average cheesy-sounding variety band: no synthesizers, no out-of-tune singer, no “Louie Louie.” Our specialty is providing listenable and danceable acoustic jazz. Our repertoire covers the full spectrum of jazz and can be easily customized to your preferences and tastes.

A great band can help create a memorable event. New York Confidential can put you at ease by ensuring that the music fits the setting in attitude, style, ambiance and sound level. New York Confidential is a versatile ensemble of experienced and professional musicians who will be courteous, prompt and professionally attired. Our rates are competitive and reasonable for the quality of music provided and we are willing and able to work within your budget to a certain degree. The result is music that is an excellent entertainment value for your event.

New York Confidential is available to perform in a variety of settings. The band can perform as a cool cocktail trio, swinging quartet or festive quintet. We perform using saxophone, acoustic bass and jazz guitar, with vocals and tasteful drums to add extra pizzazz.

A duo or trio can provide background music for cocktails, dinners, and parties, performing cool jazz standards and bossa novas. Drums and vocals can be added to create a livelier atmosphere with music covering the full jazz spectrum from swing to Latin to blues and R&B.
