Jazz Group

“Dress smart, act casual, look like you know what you are doing, and wait for somebody to count to four.” That’s the George Maurer Group’s motto, and it fits. The George Maurer Group mixes just the right proportions of refinement and relatability as they play straight-ahead jazz with their trademark lighthearted flair. Their music adds a note of elegance – and a nice dash of energy – to any event, and their repertoire of swinging classics by jazz legends packs the dance floor set after set.

With an accessible playlist and timeless sound, the musicians can provide all-ages centerpiece entertainment for a dance or quietly fill the background. They can adapt to any size room, starting with a four-piece but able to expand to a six-piece variety band or nine-piece big band complete with a horn section.

Trio

Trio

A piano. A bass. A guitar. That’s all you really need to stage an evening of fun. Well, you might want to include the guys who play the instruments, too. The George Maurer Trio knows how to jazz up a small space with a big sound — or a not-so-big sound, if that’s what the occasion calls for. So tight they can afford to keep things loose, these experienced musicians are versatile, adaptable and utterly unflappable.

The trio adds a bit of class to any venue and puts their jazz-infused touch on virtually every musical style. They’re at their best covering American swing and pop but are happy to have their way with everything from Gershwin to the Beatles. Adept at making themselves comfortable in unique settings, from swaying riverboat decks to mosquito-filled park band shells, they can perform just about anywhere with ease, style and smiles.
