KJ Duo & Trio: The Littlest Jazz Band

Intimate and lightly swinging, guitarist Tony Romano and I often work as a duo or trio for intimate concerts and smaller venues. Our repertoire includes many standards from the American songbook as well as songs in Spanish and Portuguese, and ranges from the classics to lesser-known gems.

Gramercy Park Hotel June wedding, NYC 
"We were so pleased with Kelsey and [The Lovesome]! Our guests raved about the music, and, as we hoped, there was a good amount of dancing through the evening by young and old alike. In addition, Kelsey was a pleasure to deal with and could not have been more professional, accommodating, and pleasant."

Ground for Sculpture wedding, NJ
"I'd like to say that working with the Kelsey Jillette Jazz group was nothing less than a pleasure... TheLovesome arrived on time, professionally set-up, and worked with us to make sure the event went as we dreamed.  They learned two songs we requested, Dance me to the End of Love, a Leonard Cohen Standard, and Metallica's Nothing Else Matters, arranging it on the spot!  Everything about this experience was a pleasure."  -Brandi 

Englewood Woman's Club wedding, NJ
"Dear Kelsey... Thank you for a terrific job at our wedding. You performed exactly as we expected and hoped for. We received many compliments on our choice of band and music. You helped us create exactly the wedding we envisioned and we truly appreciate it. Thanks and best wishes for everything. Sincerely, Sheryl and Anton" 

Sardi's wedding, NYC
"I only wish I had a couple more daughters to marry so your group could play for the weddings! We most thoroughly enjoyed the music... Everyone had at least one dance if not many - no wall flowers at this party - and I'm still hearing comments about the great band." -father of the bride
 
Eolia Mansion wedding, CT
"You and your band were outstanding. Everyone has been talking about you guys since the wedding. Rachel and I will definitely be checking out your shows in the near future."  -Billy
