That’s where the Potomac Jazz Project comes in."

"The Potomac Jazz Project was prompt, professional, extremely accommodating with our crowd, stayed longer than planned without any issues. Their talent and music abilities are superb, incredible musicians!! I would hire them in a heartbeat, again. Well worth the money. Thank you Stan & band."
Loly T, Springfield, VA
"The Potomac Jazz Project was great! All of our guests loved them and when everyone left our party(my father's 70th birthday party), they continued to play just for my family. It like being in our own personal jazz club. :-) I really can't say enough nice things about this group(professionalism, set-up, developed music set, etc.). Would and plan on using them again in a heart beat, I just need to plan another party. Thank you again Potomac Jazz Project!"
