Afterglow Jazz

Afterglow is the perfect union of timeless jazz standards, the American Songbook, Golden Age swing and Bossa-Nova. Set against a backdrop of classic old-Hollywood glam, Afterglow serves up sultry vintage music to set just the right mood for your wedding, private party or corporate event.

Featuring the sweet and sensuous vocals of international chanteuse and film actress Erika Smith and the vibrant, versatile and classically trained guitarist Jeff Latz, Afterglow can adapt to your specific budget, taste, and space limitations. Afterglow can be booked as a duo, trio, quartet, or up to 7 piece jazz band, depending on the needs and flavor of your event. With a vintage-inspired, 1940s look, each performance is customized to hit just the right note.

The band has an extensive repertoire but is happy to take song requests or even accompany one of your guests in an impromptu performance. Whether serving as background music or performing onstage as a visually entertaining main event, Afterglow maintains its sense of elegance, charm and class, guaranteeing a special and uniquely timeless performance for your event.

Afterglow can be booked for a length of time ranging from a one hour cocktail reception to four hours of music. Afterglow is based in New York but can travel anywhere in the United States or overseas for your event.

Testimonials

He was an awesome DJ and anything we
asked of him he had no problem

Doing. Even if we made changes at the last minute he accommodated us. I would recommend him to anyone who was looking for a really good DJ.

Jay is an amazing DJ!

He really knows how to get the crowd going! He was so good at my sister's wedding last year that I booked him for mine. He has a beautiful voice and will sing during cocktail hour and/or dinner. I also booked the electric violist, Scott, who was just fantastic! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!

Jay was amazing!

We are both in the industry so we had very high standards on our DJ and other vendors. Jay knocked it out of the park! We gave him the a vision of what we wanted in a DJ and he ran with it. Not only did he have the party going but also made sure to include all different types of genres of music to get others on the dance floor. He was flexible and we did not have to worry at all because he took care of everything. We also had Owls and Lions play at our ceremony/cocktail hour and our friends and family are still talking about it. We would highly recommend him over and over again!

Jay Della Valle was our DJ/MC for the night
and we could not have been happier.

 We saw Jay at another wedding we went to actually which prompted us to go with him. Not only is he a great MC, he plays the kind of music you want, gets everything going, and he even sings some songs that make you do a double-take because he is so good. I would highly recommend Jay for any kind of event.

From the very first meeting with Jay he was nothing
but friendly, helpful, professional but had a great sense of humor.

From the very first meeting with Jay he was nothing but friendly, helpful, professional but had a great sense of humor. He made our wedding extraordinary! Owls & Lions Acoustic Duo was the talk of our wedding and we were extremely pleased! I would recommend Jay to anyone planning a wedding!

I was a DJ for 7 years and after our experience with Spinners, I would like to reimburse any of my previous customers, because they were far superior to any entertainment services that I have seen. To call them DJ's is an understatement because it doesn't mention how seamless they make the celebration through their lighting, MC's, ceremony music (live singing, acoustic guitar, violin).
