The Dirty Martinis
Jazz, Swing, Big Band, Funk, Latin Jazz
The Dirty Martinis are an instrumental jazz trio consisting of piano/electric piano, electric bass and drums. We play a variety of traditional jazz and our own interpretations of songs ranging from 70s funk to more modern rock and pop hits. Primarily we focus on more funky/bluesy tunes and Latin jazz, but we play everything from Gershwin to Monk.
We are an absolutely solid band but with gifted soloists as well, with hundreds of gigs and professional recordings under our belts. We know how to play to both a room's sound and the vibe of the audience. As long as we are given ample notice, we are happy to learn requests for a gig.
We are also happy to add to the band (with additional compensation) as the gig requires: guitar, saxophone, vocalist. We are gigging steadily in the Los Angeles area and presently have residencies at a Brentwood hotel lounge and a Beverly Hills bar/restaurant.
