Choose an option below that fits your budget and entertainment needs!
Option One: Solo Sax With Backing Tracks
Bill Shreeve performing on soprano, alto and tenor sax with the use of a small P.A. system and prerecorded backing tracks. It's yourpact and economical way to offer a live jazz performance of classic and contemporary jazz standards.
Option Two: Jazz Duo
Saxophonist Bill Shreeve teams up with a keyboardist playing piano and key bass. The keyboardist simultaneously plays key bass as well as piano, so with the use of a drum machine, you get the sounds of a bass player and drummer to make the duo sound like four musicians instead of two! The Bill Shreeve Duo is far more colorful and entertaining than a solo pianist or guitar, but not much more expensive.
Option Three: Jazz Trio or Power Trio
Add a live drummer or bass player to the duo and you have the Bill Shreeve Trio. The Power Trio adds vocals to the mix. Bill's drummer just happens to be a great vocalist as well, so in just three pieces (sax/flute, keys/key bass, drums/vocal), you have all the elements of a 5 piece band! It's a talent packed trio and an amazing value.
Option Four: Jazz Quartet
With the quartet, all the important elements of a great jazz group are represented. Sax, keys, bass and drums. The Bill Shreeve Quartet has a deep repertoire from classic to contemporary jazz and pop, and offers dynamic levels from background to concerts.
Option Five: Jazz Quintet Add another horn to the mix (trombone, trumpet, or sax), and you have the Bill Shreeve Quintet. From unique originalpositions to jazz standards, from contemporary to classic styles featuring intricate arrangements for two horns, Bill Shreeve brings a world-class music experience to your clientele.
Vocal Jazz Options
Take these instrumental jazz options to another level by adding a great female or male vocalist to the mix. The Power Trio features male vocals in just three pieces (sax/flute, keys/key bass, drums/vocal). Other options include adding a female vocalist to the trio, quartet or quintet. For that special Sinatra sound take a look at Summer Wind described below. Call today to discuss your needs!
