Hale and her Jazz Addiction were PHENOMENAL!!! The music was absolutely perfect for the occasion. Our guests were smitten with Hale's sultry voice. I would book them again ten times over!!!


Hale and the Southpaw Preachers were absolutely fantastic! We couldn't have asked for a better band. They are incredibly talented and all our guests were on their feet and dancing the whole evening! Two thumbs wayy up!

One week before our event, we found ourselves looking for a Jazz performer for our Employee Quarterly Meeting. Using Gig Masters to source potential groups, we identified Hale as the preferred group based on the stellar reviews and the professionalism of her Web presence. Working with her agent to ensure our expectations were met was a breeze and everyone was accommodating to our schedule. We were blown away by her performance; her talent is amazing and her presentation phenomenal. Mercedes-Benz Financial Services highly recommends Hale Baskin and Her Jazz Addiction to anyone looking for a class act to perform at their function. "The best or nothing." - Kenneth O. FROM FORT WORTH, TX 

I hired [Hale Baskin & her Jazz Addiction] for my wedding and they were amazing. We only had a couple of conversations over the phone and the band was perfect! Everyone, from parents to friends thoroughly enjoyed the music, and I loved how the band encouraged participation from the guests. I am a musician, and many of my friends at the wedding are professional musicians, and there was nothing but praise for the group. Hale has a beautiful voice, and the talent of the musicians exceeded my expectations. They played a little swing, and picked up on how much or guests loved blues. For the First Dance, their rendition of Take Five was incredible!


The Southpaw Preachers showed up and showed out. With their help, our restaurant hosted the most successful New Year's Eve Celebration since our opening. Hale and the guys arrived promptly and worked with what little space we had and made it happen. Everything went off without a hitch. Customers were up and dancing and many have already asked if they would be back next year. You will have zero regrets if you book The Southpaw Preachers! It was a pleasure having them!


HOLY. COW. The Southpaw Preachers played my wedding in Dallas and absolutely killed it. I cannot stress enough how talented and wonderful this band is. Hale's vocals blew everyone away, and the band was so accommodating to arrange a string set for the ceremony and songs they'd never played before at our request. Friendly, professional, and they LOOKED amazing too! Just a wonderfully talented group that is SO much more impressive than a boxed "wedding band." Jazzy and funky and cool. As you know, a band can make or break a wedding and the Southpaw Preachers brought an energy that complemented our vibe so well. I love these guys and would book them again in a heartbeat.

I cannot begin to describe how pleased EVERY SINGLE PERSON was with this group at the party. Hale's voice is phenomenal! [...] I'm so happy I found Hale and her band. I got nothing but compliments on how wonderful the music was. These guys are honestly great! Everyone was in awe! The sound was great, their attitudes were great, they looked great- I couldn't be happier with our choice! To Hale and the band: Again, I want to thank you so much for making last night a success! You guys keep doing what you do. You were an absolute pleasure to listen to! -Charlene H. FROM PLANO, TX
