Six great bands, one seasoned bandleader
My name is Chuck Braman, and I’m a jazz drummer-bandleader, formerly from New York City, now happily making music in South Florida. My bands combine the top musicians from South Florida’s jazz community into unique ensembles based on ideal combinations of instrumentation, personnel, style and repertoire. Over the years, we’ve performed in every setting imaginable, from jazz clubs to concerts, restaurants, corporate events, fundraisers, private parties, and weddings. I love what I do and I pride myself on being able to provide truly great jazz bands for all of these musical contexts. I hope I can have the opportunity to do so for you too.
Find the “10 best jazz bands in Miami” in a directory that includes magicians? Or handymen? I don’t think so!
When you choose us, instead of having to attempt to evaluate a long list of semi-professionals on a national directory site, or talking to a salesman at an agency, you will work one-on-one with me—a dedicated life-long musician who prides himself on leading some of the very best jazz bands in the world. Contact me, by phone or by form, and I will answer all of your questions, directly and honestly.
Real Jazz, Real Jazz Bands
In addition to performing Great American Songbook standards, each of my bands has a unique repertoire of music that is custom-tailored to its particular instrumentation, style, and personnel. Our music can serve as background music extremely well, but it is the exact opposite of “elevator music”; it is real jazz that can “slow down a conversation and make a table listen,” as one reviewer put it.
Upon choosing us to play for your event, I will have a one-on-one consultation with you to coordinate repertoire, schedule, setup, and everything else to make sure everything flows smoothly.
I pride myself on providing not only the highest calibre of musicians and music, but also of reliability and professionalism. On the day of your event, we will arrive early, start on time, look great, and adjust our volume levels to suit the needs of you and your guests.

Your choice of music sets the tone for your entire event.
