Reviews

"The Jazz Coasters, fronted by Erin Fitzpatric, perform high-energy, toe tapping, you-can't-stay-seated Swing and Dixieland. Each musician is exceptional, the solos are awesome, and together they form a phenomenal band. The sheer joy of playing comes through."
- Deanna R. (Private Wedding)
"Everyone had been raving about this band and I kept missing their shows! I finally had the chance to see them tonight and was totally overwhelmed by how awesome they were! Thank you so much for an unforgettable night of dancing!"
-Hannah D. (Swing Dancer)
"Great group. They played for our dance event and kept the energy high and displayed amazing musicianship throughout!"
- Jackson H. (Miami Swing Syndicate)
"I hired The Jazz Coasters to play at the reception for my Mother’s funeral. Yes, you read that right. She loved music and we’re a music family so I wanted something special to give her a proper send off. The Jazz Coasters totally delivered with New Orleans second line songs, gospel, Dixieland and traditional jazz with soulful energy and respect that the day called for. It set the perfect tone for what we wanted. I knew Erin “got it” as for what I was looking for when we connected and he was in NOLA gigging on vacation- that says a lot! I highly recommend them for their talent, versatility and the joy of the music they hold as a high standard for their trade. 100% would hire them again.
-Terry H. (New Orleans Funeral)
