The Martini Kings take a slight departure from the norm and venture down memory lane to the era of flappers, prohibition and speakeasys with their fun and fabulous off-shoot band - Modern Cocktail Society.
Modern Cocktail Society was formed over a mutual appreciation for classic jazz and swinging standards from the 1920's thru the 1940's and love of the Great Gatsby era. Founded by bassist Anthony Marsico, the classic instrumentation of piano, guitar, acoustic bass, and drums add just the right vibe to your speakeasy party, Great Gatsby event or 1920's party - for corporate affairs, weddings, cocktail parties or birthdays. This is the hottest theme going at the moment! For larger events we suggest adding our featured female vocalist- the fabulous Miss Kate Campbell as well as clarinet and/or trumpet. If your budget allows, we can even add fabulous flappers for that wow that will knock your guests socks off!
Marsico and his band of top notch studio musicians have toured the U.S., Canada, Europe and Japan extensively entertaining audiences with their unique brand of jazz. The Modern Cocktail Society have performed for a long list of celebrity clients such as Clint Eastwood, Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, and big name corporate clients such as Mattel, Honda Motors, Warner Brothers, Universal Studios, The Getty Museum and many more.
Band members have appeared on numerous television shows including Jay Leno and Conan O'Brien. Marsico has also penned original songs for countless commercials, motion pictures and television shows including the HBO hits Entourage and Six Feet Under. From a large extravagant corporate event to a simple beautiful backyard wedding, The Modern Cocktail Society are the perfect compliment to your big day.
