The Marc Enkin band performs jazz standards, pop, klezmir and show tunes. We asked Marc why his band performs such a wide assortment of music, and he said, “it’s because I’m the son of a tailor. My father was in the clothing business, specializing in made to measure suits. I grew up with the idea that people come in all different shapes and sizes. I don’t think it’s that much different in the entertainment business. People have different preferences in music.”
Often when the band performs, there is a fairly wide demographic. The audience for a Bar Mitzvah or a wedding ranges from children to grand parents, and we try to have something in our repertoire that everyone will like. We have a huge repertoire, and the musicians are incredibly versatile. The band can be hired as a duet, trio or even an eight piece band.
The Marc Enkin Band begins with a core of musicians that we work with regularily. Then, depending on your budget, and musical preferences we add musicians. The core band consists of piano, bass and either saxophone or trumpet. One of our most popular combinations is a jazz trio for the dinner hour, playing background jazz at a sensitive volume that allows people to converse. Then after dinner we often add musicians: drums, guitar, and a singer to get the party up and on their feet.
If you let us know your musical preferences, we’ll put together a band that is right for your event. We use professional equipment, and prefer to set up the equipment early on the day of the event.
Our goal is to make your event a success. We want you to be a part of the event. With your input, we’ll tailor-make our set list to complement your event. Give us advance notice of any special requests and we’ll be happy to learn them. You may have a special wedding song picked out for walking down the aisle, or a favorite song that you shared as a couple that has a special meaning for your 25th anniversary.
Live music defines atmosphere of your event, and our job is to hire the best musicians to complement your special event perfectly. So no matter what kind of event you’re hosting, the Marc Enkin band hits the right note for everything from corporate events to weddings and Bar Mitzvahs.
