Jazzona is a duo that peforms jazz standards and smooth jazz as well as pop and classical favorites. Jazzona started when guitarist Bill Applegate and woodwind player Doug Mossing came together with the desire to perform great music that anyone can enjoy.
One night when Doug and Bill were walking through the wild jazz desert, they decided to create a musical oasis that people of all walks of life could enjoy.
Jazzona is the perfect group for your party, restaurant, or corporate event. Doug has played in Bands since he was in High School, performing in rock bands on sax and organ, irish whiste in Celtic groups as well as Sax and flute in several dance and jazz bands. Bill has a Masters degree in Jazz Guitar from the University of North Texas State's premire jazz department. Bill has performed as a solo guitarist, and with a wide variety of professional groups and ensembles. He has had the opportunity to perform at such places as Carnegie Hall, the Grand Ole Opry, and for such people as President Bill Clinton and Prime Minister Tony Blair.
As a Duo, Jazzona has an amazingly full sound. However, if you are looking for a little larger group we can add other members including a female vocalist, bass player and drummer.
"...It was a pleasure working with you and Jazzona for the Arizona Super Bowl Host Committee Executive Council Reception. Your music was a perfect addition to a wonderful night and a grand view from the 27th Floor of Renaissance Square. Thanks for making the evening special." James B. Little - Super Bowl Host Committee
After playing at a corporate event Rachel B., the event coordinator, had these kind words to say about us as a group. "Jazzona was a great addition to our corporate cocktail reception! They didn't need a lot of space, and went with the flow when we were trying to figure out the logistics of the evening! Their sound system was amazing and covered quite a large room. We received a lot of compliments about Jazzona throughout the evening, and even the next day. The guys were great, they played a good variety of music, and everyone seemed to have a great time. I would highly recommend this duo for your next event.
We had a great experience with Jazzona. They were very accommodating with our music request and provided a tailored experience for our theme party. The volume was constantly adjusted as per our requirements and led to the music being non intrusive. Our guests really appreciated the overall experience. I would highly recommend Jazzona to anyone looking for an amazing jazz experience!
