Moonshine Jazz offers a modern twist on the classic sounds of 1920's-1950's jazz and blues. Featuring Berklee College of Music alumni and lead by Black Betty "The Blues Pinup", the band is inspired by the glamour of The Cotton Club and the fun of underground Speakeasies.

The band has made their way around the world including venues throughout US, Cuba, and China, landing them titles such as "#1 Blues/Jazz Band in Shanghai" in TimeOut Magazine, "Top Don't Miss Show" from Delta Airlines Sky Magazine, and more. In 2012, their lead singer was inducted into The Blues Hall of Fame at the age of 28 and their guitarist was inducted at the age of 36. They have also received multiple Washington Area Music Awards (Wammies) nominations for Best Traditional Blues Band and Best Traditional Blues Female Vocalist.

The band offers several sizes to fit your event and venue space:

  • Trio: Acoustic jazz and blues with lovely vocals, guitar, and bass. Perfect for small parties and spaces.
  • Quartet: Small jazz combo with drums added to the trio. Excellent for background music, cocktail hours, and setting the ambiance.
  • Quintet: Take the quartet and add a fabulous saxophonist to the group. Now we're swingin'! Great for parties, speak-easy themed events, larger rooms, and more.
  • Sextet: For the fullest sound, we add piano to our quintet. Band can offer a mix of instrumental and vocal jazz and blues for a full night.

The band also offers the option to dress either in retro style or modern and sleek attire to fit the aesthetic of your specific event.
