"Exactly what we needed"

We hired the trio for a corporate function at Morton's the Steakhouse. The group showed up early, and was professional in every way. They were well dressed, and played the perfect mix of background light jazz we requested to set a great ambience for our event. I'd definitely recommend them!!

Tom and his trio did about an hour-long set at my daughter's wedding reception. Many of the 400 guests all commented that they created a wonderful mood in the room as people were waiting for the bridal party to arrive. Tom was great to work with and his fee was very reasonable. This is first class entertainment!!

Working with Tom and his group for our Par-Tee Fore Life charity event was such a pleasure. With the addition of having a Jazz trio for the party put such a touch of class and made our event an even more success. Everyone loved the music! I would book them for any event in the future.

We hired the Tom Olsen Trio for a private party, and they were truly exceptional. They played jazz standards along with a few of their own versions of some newer pieces, my guests were enthralled. Our venue was a bit different from what they were accustomed to, yet they fit right in like true professionals. Working with Tom as we planned the event was a pleasure, he is very organized easy to communicate with. But...back to the music...the MUSIC! They could not have have been better, thank you Tom!

Tom and his band are wonderful, have a great ensemble of music, sooo easy to work with, professional. Will use again, have used twice for a private dinner and a fundraiser. Appropriate for any type of event from 15-200. Especially good out on lawn for private parties.
