House Concerts - A big thing!
Some of Quintessential's favorite gigs have been playing at private house concerts. We love the opportunity to get to know our listeners up close and personal. It is great fun to be able to play songs upon request for music lovers who want to hear their favorite jazz tune. We have really enjoyed celebrating birthdays, anniversaries, milestone events, and special evenings for music lovers. We would love to talk with you about how you can host a great evening of live jazz in your home. Contact Us
