Caleb Nei Jazz


Thinking of booking jazz? I am prepared to provide live music for your event. I generally play jazz standards with a few pop favorites thrown in. I can swing; I can rock! On any given weekend you might find me in Winchester, Leesburg, or in any part of the Northern Virginia or the greater Washington DC area. Here’s what you need to know:

I can play solo piano for your event.

Solo jazz piano is the ideal compliment to your classy get-together! Cocktails before dinner? Wedding reception? Rehearsal dinner? Retirement party? Dinner music before the DJ starts? Jazz piano is perfect.

Duo, Trio, or Quartet
The group that plays most is the piano trio. (Piano, upright bass, drums.) Hear samples by clicking on the “Audio” tab.

The most popular duo options are piano & sax, or piano & upright bass. I’ve also been joined by a percussionist or a vocalist.

Trio options:

  • piano/upright bass/drums

  • piano/upright bass/vocal

  • piano/upright bass/sax

Quartet options:

  • piano/upright bass/drums/vocal

  • piano/upright bass/drums/sax
