Big Band, Sextet, Quartet, etc. Discounts

I remember being very impressed with Jerry Costanzo and his musicians when we did a wedding together. He sings in the style of Sinatra, Nat Cole, Dean Martin, Tony Bennett, Michael Buble etc., and also works with DJs to do dinner shows during receptions. (He's one of only a few people that can really pull this off - see the artcle linked below.)  I asked him if he could give couples I'm marrying a discount, and he said yes:

Here are some typical packages for a 4 hour wedding reception. I'll offer a 15% discount and include solo piano/keyboard for cocktail hour, plus a light DJ service during band breaks. (These rates are for Long Island only.)

The Jerry Costanzo 17-piece Big Band Orchestra (5 sax, 4 trombone, 4 trumpet, piano, bass, drums, myself vocal) $10,000

The Jerry Costanzo 9-piece Orchestra (3 sax, trumpet, trombone, piano, bass, drums, vocal) $5250

The Jerry Costanzo Sextet (sax, trumpet, piano or guitar, bass, drums, vocal) $3500

Quintet-(sax, piano or guitar, bass, drums, vocal) $3000

Quartet-(piano or guitar, bass, drums, vocal) $2500

(I don't receive any kind of fee from Jerry. My goal is just to provide you - the couples I'm marrying - with really quality vendors for your wedding.)


There are very few masters of music that can pull off the greatness of jazz swingers from the early years like Jerry Costanzo can. He is an absolute wonder with a beautiful voice that will transport you back into the era when big band jazz was all the rage.

He was brought up in a musically inclined Italian family in New York. He had many jobs, such as personal driver for Al Pacino, before realizing that music was his true career calling. He said that he knew that being a musician was what he was meant to do when he had pretty much failed at everything else. I say, that it’s a great thing because he is a pure musical genius and sings with such devotion and passion for the swing jazz style.

Times Square was able to have a great chat with him about his life, his music, and his upcoming show in New York.
