Homemade JAM plays as a duo, trio, quartet--up to a 6-piece. The band has performed in settings ranging from a pop-up vintage market in artsy Downtown L.A. to an upscale jazz brunch, from a nurses' fundraiser to a city library's outdoor summer concert series, from a legendary 1920s-era restaurant to a surprise birthday party and children's book release reception.

Just a small sampling of what fans have to say:

“A true authentic nod to how it was back in the day. Homemade JAM brings Tin Pan Alley to life and are highly entertaining in a fun and musically theatrical way.  Always a big hit when they made an appearance at Tuccio's Sunday brunch."  
--Damien Shields, Owner, Tuccio's, Woodland Hills, CA

“What a great band! Homemade JAM brings an amazing collection of
sing-able, swing-able classics,  even classics I used to hear my parents grooving to -- the ones so basically good they’re always a pleasure. Seasoned musicians full of rhythm and harmony, and if you’ve any swing dancers in your audience, you’d better have a little free floor space for them!”    
--Piri M., House Concert Host, Altadena, CA



From raucous swing to sultry blues of the Tin Pan Alley era, this highlights reel demonstrates the range of the band.




The 1920s and 1930s were a treasure trove of amazing American music written by some of the most revered songwriters of all time. Homemade JAM is dedicated to bringing alive this era.
