The Third Coast Jazz Band was formed in April of 2003 and has been providing entertainment for weddings and private events across Southern California ever since. The original members of the group all hailed from Michigan, known by natives as the ”Third Coast”. We regularly perform for high end corporate and private events as well for multiple celebrity events including the Academy Awards/Oscar's Pre-show Party (3 years) and the weddings of Leann Rimes and Chad Lowe. However, we love events of all shapes, sizes, and budgets!
