testimonials: 

  • John Beck (Launch Party for ArtsBoston “The Arts Factor” at Bank of America) - “The Kenmore Quartet (as a trio) was a huge hit at The Arts Factor release event and I can’t recommend them enough. Everything was prompt and professional from booking, to setup, to performance. Jesse and his crew made everything super easy for us – which is exactly what one needs when pulling together an event. The musicians were top notch and played jazzy background music and pop hits – but really anything we wanted they could do. I will definitely book them again.”

  • Ashley Mccarthy (Jazz Brunch at Jones Lang LaSalle/ Minuteman Park) -"The Kenmore Quartet exceeded all expectations during their performance at our annual holiday tenant appreciation breakfast. Jesse Baskin was extremely professional throughout the entire process and was very easy to work with. Live music was something new that we decided to try with this event and our tenants are still raving about it! We opted for a duet and both Jesse and Seba did an excellent job of setting the jazz feel we were looking for. Both musicians are extremely talented and we look forward to working them on many future projects at Minuteman Park!”

  • Adrianne Frene (Holiday Party at the Law office of Bergstresser & Pollack PC) - “The Kenmore Quartet (Trio) :D is outstanding. From email correspondence, professionalism, talent and great price.  They were early to set up (love it!), courteous and just wonderfully talented musicians.  They elevated the ambiance of our party so much so that at the guests stayed much longer than in years past (the band was the only party change).  The music was perfect and created such a cool feel. Without hesitation, I would definitely recommend Jesse and his band for any event and we will be hiring them again next year.  Thank you for making our Christmas Party a success!”

  • Cecilia Druedling (Open House with Wilson Architects; 2 years running!) - "We invited The Kenmore Quartet to play at our office holiday party this year. They were prompt, professional and played a beautiful set. We left the choice of music up to Jesse and he put together a great set of songs, appropriate for the setting. I highly recommend The Kenmore Quartet and hope to see them at our soiree again next year!" 

  • Amanda Mehlman (Awards Ceremony with the Network for Excellence in Health Innovation; 3 years running!) - "We asked The Kenmore Quartet to play at our annual fundraising dinner last year, and loved them so much that we asked them back again this year! The Kenmore Quartet is not only incredibly talented, but also professional, flexible, and very easy to work with. Many of our guests complimented the band at the conclusion of our event- these musicians can easily read the room and set the perfect ambiance. We are thrilled to be working with them once again, and encourage anyone looking to hire a band for their business event, to look no further than The Kenmore Quartet!"

  • Kirstan Barnet (Private Cocktail Party) - “We were thrilled with The Kenmore Quartet’s performance at our cocktail party for 60 people!  Their sound was beautiful, and they played a range of warm, sophisticated but approachable pieces, including “All of Me", "Blue Bossa", "Solar", "Freddie Freeloader", "Golden Lady", "So What", "Four", "Wave", and "Beautiful Love".  Virtually everyone complimented them - they were completely in tune with the crowd and responded to our energy with the right song at the right time. Finally, Jesse Baskin, their leader, was professional and easy to set things up with!”

  •  Rebecca & Denis Schweder (Wedding) - "The Kenmore Quartet was fantastic at our wedding! The band really made our cocktail hour, providing a wonderful atmosphere with superb music. Numerous guests commented on how great the music was, and we couldn't have asked for a better way to start our reception than with cocktails and Kenmore Quartet's jazz out on the terrace. Jesse was very helpful and easy to deal with in the lead up to the day - he made the organizing of the music a breeze for us and the band was extra helpful with timing on the day and one of their members helping out with ceremony music as well. They did an excellent job of combining their professionalism in organization and presentation on the day (it was a black tie wedding) with providing a really fun atmosphere. If you're looking for a great jazz quartet for your event, we would highly recommend talking to Jesse about having the Kenmore Quartet. Superb band!" 
     

  • Deana Martin (Open House with Bond Brothers Construction Management) - “The Kenmore Quartet brought class and cool music to our new headquarters Open House! Jesse and his bandmates were fantastic – great musicians with fun professional personalities! Hosting a corporate event? Hire them!”

  • AshleyKate Cameron ( Open House with Prince Lobel) - "The Kenmore Quartet was fantastic at our Open House. We recently moved and had over 300 clients and colleagues come to see your new space and wanted to have a form of entertainment for our guests. Their music was perfect for the evening event and they were nothing but professional. We made the right choice with TKQ!"

  • Olivia and Molly (Wedding) - "Consider your search for the perfect wedding music complete: no overplayed, cliche music, no stuffy or one-size-fits-all setlist. The Kenmore Quartet brought a bright, colorful, punch of super fun music that we had a blast dancing to with our guests at our wedding reception! They were flexible, easy to work with, prompt, professional and really, really talented. Jesse heard exactly what we were looking for and he and the band really delivered. They played a wonderful, creative, personalized set for us that our friends still talk about a year later. These are people who know music, who clearly enjoy playing music, and whose energy and professionalism is right up there with the best. Give them a few ideas and trust them to run with it - we are happy we did and would hire them again in a heartbeat!"

  • Samantha and Dan Delgizzi (Wedding) - "The most amazing band ever! My wedding guests of 200 were so impressed, everyone kept asking me who the band was and how amazing they are! so pleased working with them."
