Jazz Singer, Keyboardist | 2 Piece Jazz Band | CIO Summit

The organizers of the CIO Summit hired Jason Geh’s 2 piece Jazz Band to perform for their event on the 5th of October 2011. The 2 piece group featured a Jazz Singer accompanied by Jason on the keyboard.

They perform a total of 2 sets, the 1st during cocktail and the 2nd during dinner. Their repertoire was light and easy (bossanova, swing, R & B, waltzes, latin) performed with conviction but at a low volume allowing the guests to discuss and network.

It is not show time performance but more of a light entertainment that sets a cozy ambient while the guests wine, dine and interact. That’s the mood the organizers wanted and Jason Geh’s 2 piece Jazz Band fulfilled that flawlessly.
