"The Jazz Odyssey Trio was perfect for our anniversary event! They have great talent, professionalism, and sound. From the beginning, their communication was very easy, and they had great expertise.

I would highly recommend for your event! I know I would be happy to have them again."

"I recently hired Ollie and his jazz trio to play my company's Christmas party. It was my first year organizing the party, so the pressure was really on- and Ollie and his band delivered, big time! They were the perfect accompaniment to the party. They came on time, prepared, and ready to roll. They play beautifully as a group, and were all very polite and fun to talk to. I would hire them again in a minute for a company party, or personal event."
