WEDDING RECEPTION:
Great band!
I did not want a DJ for my wedding, but I did want some live jazz. The Prickly Pair Jazz duo was great: they played standard jazz favorites, and the music was a great compliment to the reception! Communication was very easy, and I enjoyed working with them.

PRIVATE PARTY:
Thank you- perfect!
Dennis and Dan of The Prickley Pear Jazz Duo were perfect for our Celebration of life event even in a venue with less than stellar acoustics. Very accomplished musicians and very personable.
Our guests came about 10 minutes early so they asked if they could go ahead and start! The volume was just right to hear but still allow conversation. I went outside briefly and missed the one song I had specifically requested, so they played it again for me!
Couldn't have been better!
Thank you.

Did NOT Dissappoint!
I had used Dan's Duo (Prickly Pair Jazz Duo) and really enjoyed it, This was a larger event so I wanted something bigger. The Trilogy Jazz Collective was absolutely superb. I highly recommend them and will use them again.

PRIVATE PARTY:
Perfect!
The Prickly Pair Jazz Duo was the perfect accompaniment to our afternoon party in the park! We had an early Thanksgiving Arizona-style with guests from near and far, of all ages and musical tastes. Dan on the guitar with Ben on the upright bass struck all the right notes with their jazz and mellow tones in the background. Dan was super easy to work with, and their music was everything I had hoped for. Our guests had a great time at our party, and I know the music was a huge part of the day. I would definitely use Prickly Pair Jazz Duo again if I had another party!

CORPORATE EVENT:
I used the Prickly Pair for an event I organized in Phoenix and I am sure glad I did. Dan and his colleague were first rate! From the planning phase right up to the day of the event, Dan was incredibly attentive, accessible and easy to work with. There were a lot of details to the event but none so small that Dan did not have time to discuss. And the music was amazing! I could see that my client and their guests were really enjoying it. I would certainly use Prickly Pair again and highly recommend this group for an event of any type.

CLUB EVENT:
They play straight-ahead jazz, quiet but intense. You can have a conversation over it, but it's worth devoting your listening attention to it if you're so inclined.
