"How often do you run into an A-list jazz ensemble at a corporate cocktail party? Perhaps not often enough but this trio certainly fits the bill. Accomplished and skilled musicians each in their own right meshed into a tight combo with the chops to provide any range of musical needs and get every toe tapping in the room--and convert even a casual listener into a new fan."
VP of Finance RHI Entertainment


 

"We were incredibly impressed with the quality of the music, how you really listened and took note of our needs and were absolutely pleasures to deal with. The entire setup was entirely seamless and I could not be more pleased with the performance or customer service. It is without a doubt I would hire you again in the event I need a jazz band."
Bride to be after her Engagement Party at the Jewish Children's Museum.

"Wayne and his guys played our holiday staff party, and they were literally the difference between the party's being ordinary and its being *special.* They are tremendous players, the tone their presence sets was absolutely ideal, and they were gentlemen to boot. I cannot recommend the Wayne Batchelor Trio highly enough for any gathering that matters to you!"
Producer of the Rachel Maddow Show

"We recently celebrated our daughter's birthday with the sounds of Wayne Batchelor's silky smooth jazz trio on the rooftop at Ample Hills Creamery in Gowanus. Wayne was great to work with in advance of the event. Onsite, he and his bandmates fully entertained us with their light cool notes that provided the ideal tone for our summer kickoff party."

"I was lucky enough to have Wayne perform with his jazz trio at my mother's 80th birthday party. He and his band mates were wonderful and set the tone for a most memorable evening. He clearly loves what he does and is exceptionally talented. I would absolutely hire him again. Jennifer - Shelter Island"

"The Wayne Batchelor jazz trio was the perfect band for our gala. Each member was super talented and professional - they worked so well together and were very friendly and personable with staff and attendees at the gala. One thing specifically noted - that I think is very important - they were great at reading the audience, and providing just what was needed for the event. They were not so loud that they drowned out conversation, but provided beautiful background music. We received so many comments on how great they were. They were definitely a class act. Our gala theme was the Red Tie Gala - each band member wore a red bow tie. No one asked them to - just a small example of their attention to detail and their desire to provide the best experience possible. They will definitely be our "go to" band for events!"

"I was the project-manager for an evening holiday event my non-profit was putting on, and Wayne and his band generously agreed to play jazz for us. They were delightful to work with, and the music was uniformly wonderful. I would gladly hire them again, and highly recommend them to anyone looking for exceptional and sophisticated live music at an event. Thank you Wayne!!"

"The Wayne Batchelor Jazz Band is professional and talented. We hired them for our Spring Benefit recently and all the attendees enjoyed their music. These musicians really know how to jam up the room. If you are looking for live jazz music then you need to consider them. In fact, we plan on hiring them again for future events."

"I hired the Wayne Batchelor quartet through Thumbtack for a men’s fashion event I was hosting earlier last week and was extremely pleased with his musicianship and professionalism. From the time we finalized the booking, Wayne and his team were extremely professional, responsive, and easy to deal with, going above and beyond to ensure that no detail was overlooked, from the set-list to last-minute logistics. The day of the event, Wayne and his band arrived promptly at the venue, setting up in a quick, organized, and unobtrusive manner, expediting set-up for other vendors. As a jazz bassist, I was thoroughly impressed by the band’s musicianship and technical proficiency. I highly recommend Wayne to anyone looking for a talented and passionate jazz musician for their events."
