I hired Alexis and his trio for an important cultural event at our organization that I could not attend myself due to the schedule conflict. Not only was Alexis flexible about our event schedule with such a short notice, but he was also very professional about choosing the right musics for our event settings and worked along with our MC at the event to get the job done right. Even though I was not there at the event, as I later watched the taped video of our past event, I was very pleased of the band's performance that evening. I am so glad that I found Alexis and his band. I would definitely recommend the band to anyone who loves jazz!Sep 25, 2017Verified
I hired Lex to play at my indie film premier a couple of years ago. He arrived early, brought a quality drummer and a stand-up base player. The group classed up the place. They played some high-energy jazz and also a few familiar rock tunes. The crowd was lively and his band was up to the task of maximizing and adding to the experience. As it was time to encourage the crowd to make their way out, the band slowed down the music which assisted in the "closing time" process. It was a great time and it added a level of professionalism and joviality to my event. I definitely recommend Lex as he was a true pleasure to work with.Nov 14, 2016
I hired Lex Maurer's jazz trio (guitar, bass, drums) for my backyard garden party in July 2016, and was very pleased. The band arrived on time and were set up and ready to play when our guests arrived. The musicians were all excellent, and they played a good mix of jazz, latin jazz, and instrumental popular tunes that our family and friends knew and enjoyed. Mr. Maurer and his trio was exactly what I was looking for, and I would hire them again. -Josh O. Seattle WANov 20, 2016
1. I asked Alexis to do a 3 piece blues instrumental for our wedding and boy did he and his crew deliver. Everyone I spoke to wanted to know how I found this band and thought they were excellent. I hadn't heard Alexis play prior to his visit, and he stunned us and our guests with a fun and groovy ensemble. You didn't have to like blues to enjoy what he brought us. 2. Alexis was a total pro throughout the process and communicative up to the wedding. He responded to my questions and last minute changes promptly. 3. Alexis cares. He discovered my wife was hoping to hear Eric Clapton's 'Wonderful', so during a break he and the band whipped out their phones so they could quickly learn it. Can't beat that dedication. 4. Finally, there is no doubt I will use this band again for future parties. Alexis is a killer musician and an outstanding guy. I strongly recommend his services.Aug 6, 2017Verified
