The Musicians

The Chicago Jazz Musicians

Chicago jazz singer and Chicago Jazz Band leader Elaine Dame works with the most experienced, highly skilled and sought-after professional musicians on her team, to form Chicago jazz band duos, trios, quartets, and more.

The musicians she works with rank among the world’s finest: a pianist who played with Dizzy Gillespie, Aretha Franklin, and Joni Mitchell, a guitarist who accompanied Barbra Streisand on the Oprah Winfrey Show, and a saxophonist who toured with Frank Sinatra whom the New York Times describes as “in the virtuoso range.”

While her ensembles range from a guitar and vocal duo for cocktails and dinner to a full octet for dancing, Elaine is most often found performing with her trio or quartet for Chicago corporate events and Chicago weddings.

Elaine plays the flute and offers classical flute with piano, guitar, violin, or cello for Chicago wedding music and ceremonies, as well as providing entertainment for Chicago corporate events, galas, fundraisers, private parties, and everything in between.
