A Jazz Duo
Jazz and Rock and Roll Standards
Need a Band?
Tom sings a smooth baritone while Jeremy plays piano.  Variety is added by taking solo verses on piano and trombone with various mutes and plunger.

In a small room we usually perfrom without amplifcation.  We can handle rooms of all sizes and outdoor venues with amplification which we provide.

All we need is an electrical outlet and an audience.  If you have an acoustic piano we can work with that, or we will bring our own electronic piano.
Tom and Jeremy are well connected with musicians in the far west suburban area of Chicagoland and often add guitar, drums, bass, sax, trumpet or others to create a band that meets the needs of your event.

We have put together groups of up to six to seven musicians.

We also perfrom certain holiday reperoire such as Christmas, New Year's, Valentine's Day, Mardi Gras, St. Patrick's Day, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Oktoberfest, Halloween...
Tom and Jeremy perform the "American Songbook" with extension into music from the early 1900s and Rock and Roll classics from the 1950s and 1960s.  We are most at home performing a diverse selection of hits made popular by artists like Frank Sinatra, Duke Ellington, Perry Como, Louis Armstrong, Elvis Presley, Fred Astaire, Fats Waller, Bing Crosby, Bobby Darin, Tony Bennett, The Monkees, Doris Day, Hank Williams, Dean Martin, Ethel Merman, Nat King Cole, Willie Nelson, Andy Williams, The Beatles, Jimmy Buffet, Rosemary Clooney, Neil Diamond, Al Jolson, Chuck Berry, George M. Cohan, Johnny Mathis, Buddy Holly, Mel Torme....

Album
Our first Christmas Album contained fun and sometimes unexpected upbeat arrangements of classic Christmas songs and hymns.  All performed by Tom and Jeremy with no computer-generated backing tracks.  Fun for all ages but children particularly seem to like it.  We're not sure why.  So we went ahead and recoded a second one.  Same overall concept, just different songs.
