Dennis Winge Ensemble

Jazz & Instrumental Music for Your Event

jazz trio at fundraiser event

“The band performed at our organization’s philanthropic Red Dress Gala. The jazz was elegant and sophisticated, raising the event to the next level. Dennis was also incredible with planning the event, coordinating band members, and even offering a slightly reduced rate for our charity.” – Sally H.

When it comes to instrumental music, Dennis’ band has it all.  Whether it’s elegant background for your corporate event, an in-your-face dance party (as you will see below from a Cornell homecoming event), or a wedding, Dennis & his finest-in-the-area musicians are ready for anything.  They have a huge repertoire of material and love to customize it to suit your unique event.

They currently play jazz in Ithaca and throughout the Finger Lakes Region of NY.

“These guys are GREAT! I hired them because my son likes jazz but, I found myself enjoying them just as much! They were on time, friendly, played for the amount of time agreed to and you could tell they really enjoyed playing as much as we did listening! These guys never complained even though they had to schlep their gear through a torrential downpour. They accommodated our requests and helped make for a great party. Dennis really knows his way around a guitar and he and the band are all true seasoned musicians. YES, I would not hesitate to hire them again.” – Shelley D

“Dennis and his band didn’t require much direction for our corporate event. We gave him a timeline and he stuck right to it. They were extremely responsive and very prompt. Would definitely work with them again! Thank you so much for everything.” – Myneco R.

Dennis Winge and his band performed at our private party. He was professional, responsive and beyond talented.  His music was the perfect background for our garden party. I highly recommend him!!! – Rosanna B.

“Booking Dennis has got to have been a fantastic experience. I reached out to him on a last minute notice to join us at our booth at the National Wing Festival, and he was more than accommodating. He picked up every single time I reached out and answered every single question I had.  During the day event, he came on time with great energy. He played an incredible style of music that fit the overall mood and theme we were looking for [which was New Orleans jazz. There is a short video of the performance at]  Couldn’t ask for a better experience with Dennis. I will be working with him every year at our festival!” – David N., Popeye’s Inc.
