I just wanted to reach out and say what a pleasure it was working with you. Your band is fantastic and really added such a special value and elevated experience for our guests. You and your band members are consummate professionals; something I really appreciate and value.
Thanks again and I will be in touch for future collaboration.
Jennifer & Miles – Lubbock, TX   We chose Entourage Jazz for a retirement party, and it was the perfect choice. From the moment we made contact with Emerson, we could tell the band would be a good fit. Emerson listens carefully to what you imagine your event to be and she asks all possible questions to insure that your dream party turns into reality. She leaves no detail to chance. Emerson and all of the band members are thorough in their preparation, and very professional before, during and after the event. The music was spectacular! Of course we loved it, and our guests loved it too! Thank you Entourage Jazz for a wonderful party!

  Emerson Corley and Entourage Jazz played at our wedding in May of 2017, and it was simply amazing. The talent and class of this group exceeded our expectations, and their flexibility made planning a breeze. EJAZZ played our pro/recessionals, as well as our reception, with Emerson emceeing and guiding our guests as needed. They played a custom piece my dad and I wrote together for my wife’s and my first dance perfectly, and once dinner was done, we had Emerson DJ for us to the end of the night. Everything was perfect; we moved easily from one moment to the next with Emerson’s guidance, the group played great together, and they brought a lot of energy to our wedding. We would hire them again in a heartbeat!

  Emerson, I wanted to thank you all for the beautiful job you did at the New Mexico Philharmonic Gala. The band was great, you were great and not just musically, your work as MC was right on the mark! Thank you again for being so easy to work with. Many thanks!!
Austin & Amanda   E-Jazz is the top!
When trying to figure out our music provider for our wedding, we knew we wanted something with a personal touch that was beyond just a DJ. We wanted classy and fun. And it meant a lot to us also to support our local arts.
We had first interacted with the lead singer and band leader, Emerson, at a wedding showcase and were instantly drawn to her work. With a sample CD in hand, we listened to it on the way home. Captivated by the vocals and musical arrangement, we knew we'd found our reception entertainment. Working with Emerson was such a pleasure. Her professionalism and timeliness made every interaction simple - and simple is hard to come across in wedding planning.
The band has such a diverse catalog and there is something to be enjoyed for all ages. Emerson also provided a wonderful service as the emcee of the night introducing every activity with gusto.
Even months after the ceremony, we still have family members raving about how the band was such a nice touch and how much it really made the reception.
I hope anyone looking for a great band for their event (from a graduation to a retirement party) will consider E-Jazz to make their event even more memorable. Their sharp dress, friendly personalities, and amazing talent make them the perfect band to work with. Thanks again Entourage Jazz!!!
Donald & Randy
  Wow! Talk about an amazing jazz band to play at our dinner/reception. Emerson Susan Corley and her Entourage Jazz Quartet did a super job in providing music for the evening. Emerson's magical voice along with a group of fantastic musicians filled the night air with the most alluring music. Emerson was amazing to work with in the planning stages. He wealth of knowledge in music was so valuable to us. I strongly suggest if you are planning a wedding/wedding reception and you want something to "kick it up" a notch or two...Entourage Jazz is what you want! Emerson Corley was such a professional in helping us with our wedding music selection. The quartet was exactly what we envisioned for our wedding.
Kristen & Kim   Emerson and the group were absolutely amazing! We had a December destination wedding, and they brought all kinds of music to our reception. We wanted jazz, Christmas, current, and 80's and they provided all! All of our guest are still commenting on the music at our reception! Thank you Emerson!
Anthoney Carrillo Gary & Gloria Nelson Immaculate Conception Church Winter Ball Committee   Entourage Jazz was not only a group of talented and entertaining musicians, they were a performance of both sight and sound. Their performance conjured memories of classical jazz legends serenading throngs of enduring fans. They met and exceeded our expectations. We look forward to attending many other functions where they will entertain. Additionally, Emerson was the true professional to work with. It was like working with family. We have made a life-long friend. She and Entourage Jazz brought joy to our audience bringing back the simple pleasures of days gone by. We would highly recommend this group to fulfill your entertainment requests.

“Entourage Jazz was an amazing addition to our wedding brunch. Not too loud and not too soft-the perfect music and musicians for a very special time. Emerson led the quintet with beautiful arrangements and many of our guests commented on how lovely it was to hear them. We found Entourage Jazz with an internet search. We also found them to be very responsive, helpful, and great to work with. We definitely recommend them for your special occasions."

  I recently used Entourage for a Tocqueville Society event and couldn’t be happier. Not only are they talented and entertaining musicians, but they are a dream to work with in terms of logistics. Emerson is extremely responsive, helpful and accommodating and everything was done on time and exactly as promised. I would gladly recommend them to anyone looking for great music and great people to work with!

  Emerson Susan Corley, and the artists of Entourage Jazz, are consummate professionals. Creating magical and inviting space for your guests is their top concern. Emerson also places great emphasis on understanding your wishes prior to the event—so that they may be fulfilled to perfection during your soiree. Her stellar communication skills and hands on interactions allow event planners to focus on other details—and guests to settle into an evening of incredible, live entertainment. Book them today for your next event…and sit back & enjoy the music!
My wife just happened to know one of the musicians in the Entourage Jazz Ensemble and we were very excited to have them play at our wedding.  Emerson took great personal care of us, meeting with us to discuss our music, and putting together a show stopping night of entertainment, with three distinct phases: A solo guitarist for our ceremony, a dynamite 'cocktail hour' and reception dinner of live jazz, and an ipod DJ for dancing. She fulfilled many different requests for each segment. Emerson and everyone in the production were professional, personable, and wonderful. We had an absolutely magical experience with E Jazz, and couldn't recommend them highly enough. 
Thank you Emerson, for everything, and we are loving following you guys, and looking forward to enjoying the new cd, that I just ordered this second. Cheers! "
Tad & Allison Turpen   "We hired Entourage Jazz for our wedding and we're so glad we did! Apart from the high quality music which our guests were raving about, we found Emerson and her band members to be extremely professional and genuine. They went above and beyond what we were expecting. They made sure everything was perfect, allowed us to select songs we liked, teamed with a DJ for later hours dancing, introduced us as a new couple, and allowed some of our musical relatives to sing with them! Their music is timeless and appealed to all of our guests of every age range, and kept them entertained during our cocktail hour. We would highly recommend them! Thanks Emerson and Entourage!"
Vance & Sandy Oas   "Entourage Jazz is filled with talented and amazing musicians. We had them play at our wedding reception, and they brought a level of class and sophistication to our event. Many of our guests, some veteran musicians themselves, mentioned how much they loved the music and the excellent quality. We would recommend this group to anyone looking for an elegant jazz ensemble."

  "Emerson - people are still talking about our reception and the wonderful music! I want to thank you for providing us that musical magic that you, Arnold and Maren gifted us with last evening - it was fabulous! I hope we can do it again next year! In the meantime we will be sure and catch you at other venues. Keep on being a cool cat!!"

And your flexibility in moving at the last minute was much appreciated. Judith deserved the very best and with you, that's what she got. Thank you more than words can say."

"My first encounter with Entourage Jazz was at our annual Wedding Showcase at Sandia Resort and Casino. I personally had never heard of the group and soon realized what I had been missing!! After listening to just one song, I, along with the entire ballroom, was in complete awe of the sound these guys produced! I, of course asked them to feel free to stay on stage as long as they wanted ;-) I am an absolute fan of Entourage Jazz and cannot wait to HEAR them again!"

Jayne Jackson
"My daughter, Meghann, was priveleged to have Entourage Jazz play their wonderful music at her wedding. Their performance was beyond compare! From the perfectly chosen cocktail hour selections of classy standards, to the beautiful bride and groom's first dance, to the jazzy selections for dancing, Entourage Jazz provided just the right mood for the night. Each and every musician brought a special touch to the music and Susan's vocals were full of perfection and personality. What pros! So many great comments from the wedding guests about the band showed us just how much E Jazz impresses all who hear them. Many guests shared the thought that Meghann's wedding was the best they had ever attended – I think due in great part to Entourage Jazz!"

Chris Grotbeck
Event Coordinator for the 2012 Sandia Open Aerial Rodeo
"Entourage Jazz gave a spectacular sunset performance at this year's SOAR Music Festival. The Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta Park provided an outstanding open-air venue for the show, and as a brilliant sunset lit the western mesa, a full moon rose over the Sandia Mountainss to provide a stunning and serene backdrop for the musicians. Hang gliders and paragliders swooped down from the sky to land on the field near the stage, and Susan Corley's velvet vocals filled the park as the ensemble opened with an apropos version of Frank Sinatra's "Fly Me to the Moon." It was a magical moment and a truly memorable concert with Entourage Jazz."

Gail Sullivan
"Made up of dedicated musicians, Entourage Jazz is one of the most polished jazz bands I have ever encountered. Romantic music, harkening back to a golden age. Entourage Jazz is always a pleasure to listen to, as they take the old classic songs and make them come alive."

"Not since the Linda Cotton Band have I heard and seen a more professional sounding and looking band."

Sara Westbrook and JJ Mancini
"Entourage Jazz could not have made our event any more perfect. With style, charm, musicality, personality, and elegance, the group with its stellar arrangements of jazz classics and an exciting spin on others, made the evening one of the most memorable nights of our lives. They were the cherry on top, that perfect addition for the evening. We will passionately recommend Entourage Jazz to anyone at any time for any reason whatsoever! Susan is a spirited personality that was such a pleasure to work with. Although unknown to us a few weeks ago, I feel like we are now friends for life!"

Pat Catlett

"With Suzi and Entourage an evening of jazz is like coming home. You kick up your feet, pop off your shoes, grab a beverage, light the fire and candles, turn down the lights, get real comfy and revel in listening to music you love, filled with fond memories, mood, and good time relaxing smooth sound."

My husband and I had the pleasure of having Entourage play at part of our Wedding Reception. We were beyond pleased with the music and everything that they had to offer. Not only did we love having them play, our guests also had wonderful things to say about the group. Susan is such a pleasant person to work with. We will absolutely be using them again. I highly recommend anyone looking for a great music experience to use Entourage.
