Custom Jazz Ensembles

Instantly transform your event into an "experience" with the addition of live music. A jazz guitar duet with acoustic bass is ideal for small, relaxed venues where volume and space may be a concern, and it's more economical than hiring a larger ensemble. 

The Gabe Stivala Quartet plays a variety of jazz-related styles, such as straight-ahead, bop, Latin, and funk. The group will customize the performance (style, energy, and volume) to fit the venue. And yes, we take requests.

Through his connections within the jazz community, Gabe can assemble a group of almost any instrumentation based on your preferences. He has a list of his favorite musicians with whom he has worked throughout the years--vocalists, horn players (sax, trumpet, and trombone), keyboardists, string players, bassists, and drummers are just a phone call away.
