Corporate Events

It takes attention to detail and timing to keep your company event on schedule.

Hiring the Abe Speller Jazz Trio to perform during cocktails & dinner or playing your honorees on and off stage adds a special touch that makes the event memorable.

A party in your home with an acoustic piano in your living room, a restaurant gathering of 50 people or at one of the local museums or event spaces; the Abe Speller Jazz Trio, a 3 member professional jazz ensemble is a perfect fit, performing holiday songs with a jazz feel that will have your guests singing along to make your memorable event even more special.

Fund Raising Galas

We have made a commitment to help out with our music.


The experience of the Abe Speller Jazz Trio performing while patrons are eating or enjoying a cocktail listening to timeless jazz standards in the background enhances the social environment. Studies show people make decisions on returning to a restaurant by the ambiance and even more so if a regular band is a part of the scene.

The Abe Speller Trio plays jazz standards for corporate events, cocktail and holiday parties, wine tastings, galas, weddings and fundraising events. Our jazz trio has been entertaining corporate and public audiences from New York, New Jersey, Philadelphia & Delaware for almost two decades.

Abe Speller has worked for 40 plus years as a sideman/drummer in New York with several groups and offices i.e. Bud Maltin Music, Metropolitan Music, Hal Prince Orchestra and Ananda Music before forming this trio of talented musicians in 2005. The Abe Speller Jazz Trio’s mission is dedicated to performing the very best light jazz and swing with a focus on music written by the Great American songwriters like Cole Porter, Jerome Kern and Irvin Berlin to the modern jazz innovators Duke Ellington, Bill Evans, Stevie Wonder and others.

Let’s be honest, the music can make or break a party, which mean the band is one of the most important factors of your event.

Duane Morris LLP

What can I say–the Abe Speller Trio added the perfect ambiance to our corporate event! After a day of listening to presentations and watching demonstrations, our guests relaxed and unwound to their music during our cocktail reception. I received many positive comments about the trio, the variety of music they performed, and the quality of their musicianship. Abe was a pleasure to work with, too. His guidance and assistance helped make our social hour the perfect end to a busy event. Highly recommended!!
