Paul, thanks so much for recommending the Dave Ott trio to us. All three were very excellent young musicians with a great repertoire and the talent to successfully tackle requests that weren't in their songbook. This trio were the highlight of my wife's retirement party and a hit with all in attendance. We hope to hire them again soon. Luke Somerlot

Thank you, Luke! It was my pleasure to be able to recommend David since I was already booked. I'm happy you reached out, and hope you might be able to attend one of my live jazz events soon.

We couldn't have been happier with our decision to hire Paul and his trio for our wedding. My husband is a musician and I have worked with live music as a dancer many times, so we know quality when we encounter it. Planning our wedding from our of state was a challenge, and Paul was responsive and professional via email. He sent us music samples and was eager to learn specific songs for our ceremony. The day of our wedding the trio was early, well dressed, and ready to go without a hitch. They played for our outdoor ceremony and quickly reset on the patio for cocktail hour. I would recommend Paul to anyone looking for high quality, affordable musicians to enhance your event!

I received a quote from Paul Griffin Music in a very timely manner and his rates were in line with our budget. He was very professional in his correspondence and while due to uncontrollable circumstances on my side where we were not able to use his services, I will certainly keep his information for future use.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Pricing is always negotiable. Please do not assume that my music is anything less than professional based on price - there are many pros out there charging more money because they make a living with music. With all due respect to them, I am usually happy to give some discount when needed, or if asked. My goal is to provide great quality music at reasonable prices.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    The most important thing is to find out what type of music is needed and the type of event. That way I can be sure to match the music to the event appropriately. This can be done in a few short emails. I would rather not take a booking if my music is not desired.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have 40 years of experience playing all kinds of music in many venues. I work with similar professional and semi-professional musicians with diverse backgrounds to offer the best quality music for any event.
