Savoy Live Jazz Band

Video: It Don’t Mean a Thing

For an evening of incredible fun and unforgettable music, invite the Savoy Live Jazz Band to provide the entertainment at your next event. Lead singer Sam Payne is the focal point of the group, providing jazz vocals that are only matched by his charismatic stage presence. Taking classic jazz and pop songs and turning them into energetic tunes that demand foot tapping and knee slapping is what makes this ensemble so popular. If your heart is set on bringing in one of the most talented jazz live wedding bands, look no further.

As a world-class jazz vocalist, Sam has played for enthusiastic audiences all across the country as well as in Bulgaria, Canada, and Tokyo. The press says he “is a ‘must see’ show,” a perfect entertainer for any audience. He’s an engaging performer who can sing anything and make it sound like a Billboard hit.

Sam Payne may get a big percentage of the attention, but Savoy’s other band members are award-winning, accomplished musicians that take a backseat to nobody. Drummer Bart Olson is a national talent contest winner and has played with so many national artists you’d need a mathematician to keep track. Whether he’s playing for a small intimate affair or for a sold-out arena, Bart always brings his “A” game.

Ryan Tilby is a studio musician who’s skilled on many instruments, including guitar, banjo and mandolin, but as a bass player, he’s the driving force behind the music of the Savoy Band. He shreds the bass with the best of them, producing intense rhythms that always keep dance floors crammed from end to end with dance-happy guests.

And rounding out the fantastic foursome is Joshua Payne, playing a riveting jazz guitar with a style all his own. Joshua is a virtuoso musician who improvises melodies that are technically perfect while melodically beautiful. Savoy Live is a wildly popular jazz band and great addition to any social or corporate event, private gathering, festival, fair, awards dinner, gala, fund raiser, dance, concert or other special event. Give your guests music they’ll appreciate – give them Savoy.
