“This was the best Big Band show I've seen in a long time.  The last time I saw anything this good was the Count Basie Orchestra at the Fairmont Venetian Room.  Two thumbs up.”    Susie B.  -  San Francisco, CA

“Thank you again so much for making our daughter’s wedding reception a smashing success!  Everyone loved your music!    Greg P. - Piedmont, CA 

“I heard Steven Powell and the Lafayette Studio Big Band at Concord Todos Santos Plaza on 9/11.  They are fantastic!  I could have listened all night!”    Don P.  – Martinez, CA

“Band leader and drummer Steve Snyder, led the band swinging with energy and excitement ... saxophonist Dan Willis laid down one inventive solo after another  ...... bass bone player Tim Phelan was giving a master class on trombone playing, and fiery lead trumpet player Eric Eidbo was spot on all night.....a show not to be missed.”
