Jazz By Two was great to work with! From the moment I contacted them to their performance everything was smooth sailing. They are very easy to work with, professional and they sounded amazing! We will definitely have them back again. I highly recommend them!

We booked them less than 2 weeks before our fundraising event, and they really did a great job setting the mood and entertaining the crowd. Hope to book them again next year!

Billy and Jeff (Jazz by Two) are exceptional. The two of them sound like five. Great mix of music. They sing great too. They made our party the best one we've ever had. Got everyone dancing. Of the 85 people who attended, every single one complimented the music first and foremost. Bille and Jeff are also very professional - not just during the event, but also communicating with us beforehand for planning. Easy to work with. On time. Set up in a timely manner. And sincerely the two nicest guys you could ever meet. You can't go wrong with Jazz by Two. We'll be having them back for sure. Joan S., Atlanta

I will work closely with you to pick the best set up (TRIO / DUO) and price point within your budget. TIP: Weekdays are always a better bargain ;o) Get the great full sound & talent of Jazz By Three (or) Jazz By Two today, the calendar fills up quickly.

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

    I get many compliments and testimonials on the way we handle the contractual process. Professional, friendly, organized and complete. Experience teaches you to be prepared and things will run smooth for your client.

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

    ABOUT US “Jazz By Three” features Jeff Andrew Simpson (tied closely with colleagues @ Jazz At Lincoln Center NYC) has a B. M. in Jazz studies on Saxophone from the University of North Florida, and a Masters of Music from the University of South Florida for Jazz Composition. He is a musical director / educator in Atlanta by day and professionally among the most in-demand players in town. His playing is flawless on sax, flute, trumpet, piano and vocal styles of Harry Connick Jr, Bublé and Sinatra. Jeff’s CD of original jazz compositions “In A Midnight Moon” was well received and critically acclaimed. Our TRIO version also features local legend Michael Ewbank on keyboards (Tall Dogs, Butch’s Brew – Butch Trucks of Allman Bros Band – also The League of Decency, Tommy Dean) Michael is a star. His piano playing is brilliant and enchanting. With major recording label creds and formidable talent, his rep follows wherever he performs and is one of the most sought after artists in the city. Billy Bryant’s exceptional brush work on drums, intuitive feel for Latin percussion and New Orleans vocal style pulls it all together for an outstanding TRIO experience. Billy has been a mainstay in the Atlanta music scene for years; playing drums for major music venues, festivals and opening for Lynyrd Skynyrd and Chuck Leavell (Sea Level). He founded “A Sparkling Planet” which was a popular swing / lounge / jazz band in early 2000’s.
