Campbell's Jazz Soup is a band that plays a fun blend of 1920s, 30s, 40s, and 50s jazz and swing at events, parties, festivals, and weddings throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. We can cater our style to your event and play mellow background jazz, upbeat danceable swing, or a combination of both.
Our core trio is composed of leader Brian Campbell on clarinet, saxophone, and vocals accompanied by guitar and upright bass. According to your wishes and budget the band can also perform with four, five, six, or seven musicians by adding trumpet, drums, piano, and/or trombone. If you want to dance we suggest going with at least five musicians.
If you have a tight budget or limited space we can also perform as a duo (sax/clarinet/vocals and guitar or piano). And, if you prefer, we can use piano rather than guitar as the chordal instrument in any of our configurations.
For over two decades we've played many events throughout Northern California including weddings, festivals, parties, and corporate functions. Check out our music samples
