Tasteful Music for Dining, Dancing, and Digging!

saxophonist Jim Grantham

Jim Grantham leads Nightbird Music and many of its bands.

Nightbird Music is a small, focused production company providing the finest bands for weddings, receptions, dinners, dances, parties, and background music in the San Francisco Bay Area. Owner Jim Grantham is a well-known saxophone stylist and bandleader greatly respected in the music community for his high musical standards and professionalism. Nightbird’s exceptionally talented musicians are the cream of the crop of the Bay Area’s professionals.

Music can be custom tailored for your particular event, especially when appealing to a broad range of age groups. For instance, a typical wedding may include a classical duo/trio for the ceremony, solo-trio for cocktails, quiet instrumental dinner music, capped by an exciting dance band providing energy and fun.

Most agencies charge substantial fees for overhead and sales commissions. Working with Nightbird Music, however, you will save the money usually going to a middleman, and deal directly with the musicians. We offer the best music at the best price.

There are a variety of Nightbird combos available, from solo to big band. The most popular groups range from trio to the “mini” big band eight-piece. All combos feature your favorite styles – jazz, swing, rock, motown, pop, latin, ethnic, etc. We also book other selected bands to fit your specific requirements.

Use our vast experience and extraordinary versatility to create and enjoy the event of your dreams.
