Traditional jazz music routinely thrills audience members across every generation and, for some, for the first time. Many say,  'it's the best
music they've never heard'!

Jazz is one of the few musical art forms originating in America. 

Springing from within African-American communities, the genre was inspired by the convergence of diverse cultural and musical influences flourishing in the melting pot of late 19th century New Orleans.  Military brass bands, African and Cuban rhythms, religious hymns, choral masses, opera and ballet are among the many influences contributing to the blue-notes, syncopation, polyrhythms, swing-notes and improvisation featured in jazz.


Trad jazz music provides a unique, comfortable and appreciated fit for most any occasion. From outdoor concerts to small, intimate weddings, the possibilities are virtually unlimited.

"We would highly recommend this professional group for your next function."

The Vista Classic Jazz Band performed at our South Carolina State Fair Preview Party.  Approximately 500 people enjoyed the smooth sounds of "Dixieland Jazz.” We wanted something to complement our party but not overpower it, and the Vista Classic Jazz Band added just the right touch. Not only was the music spectacular but the "guys" were very personable. The group was very accommodating and the setup and teardown went smoothly. We would highly recommend this professional group for your next function. They will set the tone for a wonderful event!”
