Gaucho Jazz has performed in virtually every type of setting and event imaginable. From weddings, high profile corporate functions, parties big and small, speakeasies, wineries, hotels, museums, art galleries, restaurants, and even backyard barbecues, we keep crowds moving with our beats and intricate rhythms. We can accommodate your musical request - from intimate duos, trios and larger "big band" style groups, with vocals or instrumental-only combinations, and ceremony music.

We are a masterful San Francisco Bay Area band that combines the influence of gypsy jazz of 1930's Europe with the rhythmic drive and collective improvisation of New Orleans swing music, gutbucket blues and elements of ragtime. Our sound, a uniquely American concoction, blends instrumental acuity and lighthearted humor that keeps our audience coming back for more. We have been a San Francisco mainstay for over fifteen years, and one of the busiest bands in the bay area playing 5 to 10 gigs a week.
Gaucho Jazz values professionalism at the highest level. We are always on time and arrive prepared with the necessary gear. We've learned what it takes to help people get into the swing of things and enjoy a memorable celebration. Because we're easy-to-work-with, seasoned pros you can depend on, wedding and party planners always stay stress-free.

Gaucho was voted "Best Jazz Band 2009" and "Best SF Band 2016" in the SF weekly readers poll!


Private Event or Party, Wedding, Venues


Gaucho Jazz was fantastic! Each member was so very kind, it would have been nice to have them play for longer. They added the perfect touch to our event. I will be sure to recommend them for other company events.
