Night & Day provides Maryland, Northern Virginia and Washington DC with wonderful live swing and big band music that will enliven and energize your event without overwhelming it.
We play the classic songs of Gershwin, Cole Porter, Glen Miller, Duke Ellington, etc., with a flair and style that can only come from a love of the music. You'll recognize the great tunes made popular by Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Tony Bennett, and Harry Connick Jr., among others. Your foot will be tapping, but you'll still be able to hold a conversation.
Night & Day can rock as well as swing! When your event really gets going, we won't let you down. We'll perform the oldies and classic rock you love with the same energy and gusto as our swing.CONTACT US »
A note about the above: we're experts at reading your crowd and sensing when it's time to switch from one style to another. When it's time to move from swing to rock, or from a slow dance to a fast dance, we're right on top of it.

Listen To The Band
The music you will hear below is a small sample of the live dance music that we would perform at a typical dance event in the Washington, D.C. area, including Maryland and Virginia. Whether your guests prefer swing dancing, ballroom dancing, or just like to move to the beat of Disco and Motown, you'll find these styles covered in the demos below.
When the band plays at an actual wedding, corporate function, or special event, our repertoire is much broader than what you will hear below. A complete Night & Day songlist is here and an additional set of band demos with longer versions of your favorite dance music is here.

APPLAUSE FOR NIGHT & DAY
"My wife and I want to thank you and the whole band for playing at our wedding reception on May 28th at the Admiral Fell Inn. You sounded tremendous and the singer had a wonderful voice. Your excellent musicianship gave the entire reception an air of class. We have heard nothing but compliments from our guests. Indeed, you were so good that my parents spent most of the night dancing. (I will never forget the sight of my parents dancing a tango.) You were also extremely helpful while I was planning the music for the reception. Please feel free to use this as a reference, or refer potential clients to me. Having Night & Day play at their event will be the smartest move they make."
"Thank you for your wonderful contribution to our wedding. The music you provided for our reception at the Jefferson Hotel was exactly what we had hoped for. Absolutely everyone commented on how great the music was, and we thought it was particularly appropriate for the setting. You were also great at "reading" the crowd and picking up the tempo as the night went on."
"I absolutely loved the band! You guys are so talented. We received more compliments on the band than on anything else (well, except my dress, of course!) I'll be recommmending you guys every chance I get."
"I wanted to thank you and Night & Day Music for playing at my wedding. You made the reception fabulous! I can't tell you how many compliments my husband and I have gotten about your music. Everyone wanted to know where I found you guys. The jazz quartet and vocalist was a perfect selection for our smaller gathering, and it really lent to the intimate feeling of the party. You guys are magic."
"Thank you so much for playing such elegant and fun music at our wedding at the Congressional Club! We really enjoyed the planning ahead of time, and the cocktail piano and the band upstairs were fabulous! We received so many compliments regarding your style, sound, and especially about the female vocalist-everyone loved her!"
