Underscore Jazz Collective is made up by professionals from all over the San Francisco bay area that specialize in music with roots in the jazz tradition, including Jazz Standards, Hard Bop, Motown, Funk, R&B and more. Underscore believes in this music, and we pride ourselves in bringing good vibes and great sounds to all events. We come in a variety of ensemble styles and sizes (detailed below). Regardless of the group hired, the quality, integrity, and authenticity of our collective sound always remains consistent. We are available for weddings, corporate events, holiday parties, backyard BBQs, private functions, and club dates.
The beauty in this music is its versatility. The tone can be set at cocktail hour with relaxed ballads and swing numbers, and the dance floor can be filled later that night by funky, groove-driven music - all with a jazz sensibility - all by one band.
