Are you looking for an alternative to your typical "party band" for your wedding,  cocktail hour, wrap party, corporate event, birthday or holiday party or other function?

The Martini Kings are Los Angeles' premiere cocktail band.  They play an exotic combination of retro classics, jazzy standards, bossa novas and cool instrumentals from the 1940's to 1960's.

The Martini Kings play for the Emmys

Their swingin' instrumental style will create a hip and elegant  supper club vibe that is perfect for listening or dancing - sophisticated, but never sleepy!

The Martini Kings are the antidote to average.  They know that it's your special event and you want things your way, no take-over singers, no hokie-pokies or chicken dances just simple, elegant, modern music.

Their music will satisfy your hippest guests,(without offending your Aunt Edna).

The Martini Kings are seasoned players who've recorded, toured and played with a variety of musicians the likes of which include: Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Dr. John, Roger Daltrey, Marianne Faithful, Rod Stewart, Etta James, The Blasters, Cher, Carole King and Matthew Sweet -- just to name a few.

In addition, they've been called on to appear in and score numerous television, film and commercials. Group members have appeared on The Jay Leno Show, Late Night with David Letterman, Saturday Night Live, Conan O'Brien, MTV and many more. The band will appear, in 2005, on the premier episode of Six Feet Under.

The Core of The Martini Kings consists of vibes, bass and drums. For larger functions we suggest adding additional pieces such as guitar and/or saxophone to round out and complete The Martini Kings sophisticated and swingin' sound.

It just doesn't get any hipper!

A swingin duo? trio? or maybe a larger group?
