Covert Jazz far exceeded our expectations in terms of musical quality, friendliness, and professionalism. They were a pleasure to work with. They really made our party for incoming Connecticut Children’s Medical Center pediatric residents into something much greater than it otherwise would have been. They were terrific and we plan to have them back again this year. Esperanza Lesmes, Hartford, CT June 2011.

“Covert Jazz did an absolutely phenomenal job at Hill-Stead Museum’s benefit event for the Sunken Garden Poetry Festival, where they entertained during the introduction and post-event reception hour.  They were a pleasure to have at our event—courteous, punctual, professional and clearly, very talented. I highly recommend anyone looking for some musical entertainment to contact them. We could not have been happier with their performance. Thank you. – Mimi Madden, Farmington, CT, Dec 2011”
