There’s a reason why The Martini Kings were named #1 live event band in Los Angeles by MyFoxLA.com. They’ve performed for everyone from Oscar winner actor/director Clint Eastwood, Kim Kardashian, Arnold Schwarzenegger, author Stephen King, to Grammy superstar Carole King. Our events range from big name clients such as Chrysler Motors, The Getty Center and Universal Studios, to simple backyard cocktail parties. When event planners and party pros are looking for sophisticated and modern, with a hint of retro-style thrown into the mix, they always call on The Martini Kings.
From wowing the red carpet celebrities at The Academy Awards year after year, to entertaining important corporate clients such as Mattel and Warner Bros. Studios, The Martini Kings are a perennial favorite with “A” listers around Los Angeles and beyond.
If you’re looking for an alternative to the “typical” for your wedding, cocktail hour, wrap party, corporate event, birthday or anniversary you’ve arrived. We will adapt to your needs by providing anything from a duo to a deluxe seven piece band. Oh, and did we mention that we love to do "theme" parties -- Mad Men, Rat Pack, Great Gatsby etc.?
The Martini Kings will satisfy your hippest guests (both young and old), with an exotic combination of retro classics, jazzy standards, bossa novas and cool instrumental or vocal hits from the great American songbook. Our swingin’ style will create a hip and elegant vibe that is perfect for listening or dancing— sophisticated, but never, ever sleepy! Our diversity allows for anything from an instrumental jazz trio, to a lush 7 piece with male or female vocalist.
