Bella Cosa

With a name that means ‘Beautiful Things’ in Italian, Bella Cosa plays what’s often referred to as “Hot Club or “Gypsy Jazz.”

Mixing Django Rheinhart style guitar work, smooth tenor sax work with vocals to match, Bella Cosa is the perfect addition to the most romantic occasions.

Although this band is very popular for dinner music or quiet reception music, they can whoop it up when the crowd is ready for upbeat wedding dance music.

The Jaztronauts – JAZTRONAUTS.COM

A one-of-a-kind “Rat Pack meets the Mills Brothers” quartet, the Jaztronauts are still swinging strong, almost two decades after their breakout gig as the popular Monday night house swing band at Lee’s Liquor Lounge.

 

The space age quartet’s unique “harmony swing” sound has earned them an impressive résumé, including being named Minnesota Music Awards Acoustic Jazz Artist of the Year and a ‘Best Of’ listing in MN Bride. The band served as house band for channel 45’s Big Bad Movie and spent 3 seasons as official on-field entertainment for the Saint Paul Saints. The boys even did a tour of duty in Europe, playing grueling 5 1/2 hour shows, six nights a week, at the Casa Bar in Zürich’s old town. They were once flown to Florida for a live appearance at Kennedy Space Center, and recently played for a private AirSpace MN event for Buzz Aldrin.

 

The Jaztronauts’ debut CD, “Swank,” received critical acclaim, and several cuts from the album made the top 10 of the “swingtop40.com” charts.

If you are aiming for a Classic Wedding or Vintage Wedding, there is no better choice in the midwest than the Jaztronauts!!  With 20+ years under their belt, and thousands of Weddings they are considered one of the Best Wedding Bands in the Midwest
