Since the band’s start in 1998, the MachOne Jazz Orchestra has performed often at local Dance Events and Park Concert Series, and is one of the most sought-after groups for Fundraisers, Weddings, Corporate and other Special Events. Recent highlights include serving as the ’house’ big band for the 2009 Frank DeMiero Jazz Festival at the Edmonds Center for the Arts, where we accompanied John Pizzarelli, Sara Gazarek and Carmen Bradford; a Roaring Twenties-themed Auction and, most recently, our fifth year as the featured band at the fabulous, glittering Bonza Bash New Year’s Eve 2014 benefit event. We have performed throughout the Greater Seattle area at venues like the Seattle Aquarium, Fremont Studios, The Olive 8 Hyatt, The Grand Hyatt in Seattle and the Museum of Flight.
For dancing or listening, MachOne can deliver it at the speed of sound! We would love to be part of your musical event!
