Joelle Lurie Band
Joelle Lurie Band play what they like to call “jazzed-up pop & popped up jazz” at special events and also regularly at the iconic Tavern on The Green in Central Park. Our versatility and repertoire allow us to transition from an elegant jazz cocktail hour, to a rocking dance-party - as a quartet or joined by our horn section. We play concerts, corporate events, weddings, and general club dates around the US as well as our own unique jazz/pop arrangements and original music at venues in NYC. Check ‘calendar’ tab for dates.
