About Us

The James Zeller Trio's fantastic repertoire is a unique and entertaining mix of swinging Jazz and American Songbook classics from the 1920's-50's. At weddings we perform the timeless love songs of our chosen genre, music that is guaranteed to please a crowd. 

We are a full time working band with a huge song list. We take pride in our work as musicians and entertainers. Beyond our ability onstage, we are classy, professional, experienced in the wedding business, punctual, well dressed and easy to work with.

I'm happy to answer any question, or work with you on any specific detail to customize our performance for your special day. If you don't see a song you love on our list, please inquire. Besides Jazz we also play covers by artists like Willie Nelson, The Beatles, Sam Cooke and Van Morrison.

Our trio's instrumentation is  trombone/vocals, guitar, and upright bass. We also perform in larger ensembles by adding clarinet, cornet/trumpet and/or drums. For classical music at ceremonies, violin may be added.

The James Zeller Trio perform on Friday nights at "Bar Pleiades". We have performed for GM, Thomson Rueters, Conde Nast, Macy's, Ted Baker London, The Heritage Foundation, Stoli Vodka and at such venues as: The National Arts Club, The Metropolitan Room, The St.Regis Hotel, La Bernardine, The River Cafe, The Lambs Club,  Trump SoHo, Bar Boulud, The Rainbow Room, dB Bistro Moderne, The W Hotel, The Union League Club, The Links, The Union Club among others.

  • We had a very intimate elopement and knew from the start we wanted a jazz band to be a key part of our outdoor NYC ceremony. James and the band were an absolute pleasure to deal with, they had the best repertoire from any jazz bands I've come across and were able to play all the songs we'd hoped for (even some more unusual ones) and they did so beautifully and with ease. They were really accommodating and flexible, which made them a pleasure to liaise with in the lead up to the wedding. One of the standout moments of my ceremony was an impromptu additional song from them, as the sun shone and they sang a gorgeous version of 'Wonderful World' I couldn't have asked for a more perfect moment and one I'll never forget. I'm from the UK but so pleased I came across the band and wouldn't hesitate in recommending them to anyone else (and I'm in the wedding industry myself so have very high standards!). Thank you to James and the band for making our ceremony so special and everything we'd hoped... Read more
