This is my full on "fan" letter but it is so sincere because I know how very deserving you all are - so hardworking and keeping the melodies of yesterday alive...just as it should be.   Please share my love and adoration for everyone in the band.

“The performance of the Vintage Jam Band at my annual Christmas Eve party was a smashing success. I have thrown this open house party for the past 28 years and I must say your Trio was a great addition to my home-style open house that is a tradition passed down from childhood growing up in an Italian family that cherished the warm friendships of friends and family on many a special occasion. 

        “Some of my guests have never missed open house and all agreed your songs and dance of a bygone era added great warmth and added joy to this special evening. We look forward to having your trio perform in the future and have passed your reference to many of our friends. Thanks for being part of our Holiday season.” 

        - Ray L., Xmas Party Host, Silverlake, CA


“Homemade JAM performed at the outdoor Brand Library Plaza Series on June 24, 2016. They played to a capacity crowd who loved their performance. Their music encompasses Tin Pan Alley songs, blues, folk and other American styles. A wonderful set played by seasoned pros with a big repertoire--they were a huge hit at our concert series. Highly recommended.”
