The Swing, Jazz and Big Band Specialists!
Elegance and class at a reasonable price. The perfect music for your wedding reception, cocktail party or corporate event.
Night and Day is a band, not a talent agency. The core players have been playing together for 20 years. We started off as a variety band, doing “top 40″, rock and contemporary music, but soon realized that our true love was the wonderful music of the swing and big band era. We made that music our specialty, but our experience performing all types of music gives us a unique flexibility.

Why is Night & Day the best choice for your smaller, intimate wedding? Because jazz and swing music provide the perfect touch for a classy event, and we’ve been performing this wonderful music at smaller weddings for two decades.
We offer combos from a duo to a quintet, depending on your needs. Our smaller groups create elegant musical ambiance, and the quartet and quintet give you the added option of vocals and dancing. Night & Day’s music will always be energetic and tasteful, but never too loud. We are the small wedding experts.
For over 20 years we have been playing the best jazz, swing and big band music in the Maryland, DC, and Northern Virginia areas. We have the experience to give your smaller wedding that special touch of class to make it an unforgettable event.

Swing, Big Band, Ballroom
We love to play for dancers!
Our original music specialty was (and still is) swing and big band music. As such, we have played regularly for swing dances at various DC area venues. Over the last decade, however, we’ve expanded our reportoire to include a wide variety of ballroom dance numbers. This gives the band the added flexibility to perform for dancers who desire both swing and ballroom music.
So if you’re having a dance and you want to hear a little bit of everything—swing, waltz, rumba, cha cha, etc—Night & Day is the obvious choice.
More than just Jazz and Swing
Night & Day does more than swing and jazz. With our larger ensembles, we perform most styles of dance music, including oldies, classic rock, Latin, disco and ballroom. With our smaller combo configurations, we perform mainstream jazz and swing standards that make ideal background and listening music.We also provide ceremony music and solo cocktail piano. If desired, we’re happy to help you with your musical choices, and to act as Master of Ceremonies for your event.
Live music, whether for background or dancing, dramatically enhances the enjoyment of any event. So if you’re having a function in the Washington DC area, including Maryland and Virginia, and you’re looking for experienced professionals at a very reasonable price, call us today!CONTACT US »
