"A dangerously fun
ensemble... a very hip combination full of vocal intensity and good
- Johnny Alfred
"Tré Taylor has a
special gift with her voice and her songs. No matter what mood you're
in, you're going to feel better after hearing her sing. The
arrangements set off each song like a gem."
- Bob Mc Pearey
"Dangerous Martini is
amazing. We booked them to play at a cocktail
reception and got so many compliments on our find!
Taylor, the lead singer, has this terrific smoky
voice and totally gets the retro jazz ambiance
going. The band is professional, puts on a great
show, and really appreciates a good audience. They
were extremely accommodating and even helped out
with a few special song requests.
While they do private events, they also have shows
all over the bay area. Check them out, and
definitely give them a listen if you have a wedding
or upscale event coming up. mp3s of their
repertoire are on their website I would definitely
hire them again!"
that martini shaker one more time, folks- the cocktail movement is not
quite dead….that is, at least if music like this remains readily
Martini featuring vocalist Tré Taylor, is a jazz quintet based in the
San Francisco Bay Area. A competently concocted slice of
cocktail jazz to sooth the soul and arouse the senses. Taylor is
an earthy yet sophisticated jazz singer with soulful passionate tones.
Her style is immediately sensual, a super mood maker. Fans of
Diana Krall and Norah Jones will find Tré Taylor worth checking out."
"A wonderful Swingin' lounge lizard band, led by vivacious vocalist Tré
Taylor, Tré is the next best thing to Jessica Rabbit (seriously
folks, if Bob Zemeckis makes a RETURN OF ROGER RABBIT, there is no God
in heaven if Tré doesn't do the singing segments), with a couple
nods to Etta James' soul-gospel and Betty Carter's breathy ballad
prowess, she's joined by Art pepper-ish alto saxophonist Ruben
Salcido, the finger-poppin' rhythm section of bassist Mark Petrella,
Sameer Gupta or Darius Minaee on drums, Doug Wendt and/or Rick
Vandavier on guitar."

sounds of Tré Taylor and Dangerous Martini fill the room with a
sensuality that seems to bead and drip from the ceiling like thick
moisture. You can't escape
it. Not since hearing
cover "Feels Like Rain" at Buddy Guy's Legends have I felt

Dear Tré and the Guys in the Band,
We have just returned from California and and we are still humming
the melodies from the reception. You set a marvelous tone for the
reception. We were so pleased. Every one of the guests remarked
about the great music...they wanted more of you! Thank you again
for setting our daughter's wedding memories to music. Continued
success to all of you.
- Sincerely, Cinda Schantz, July 2004
should have been our headliner for Saturday San
year. We had no idea about the following you have. You got everyone up dancing, grooving and feeling alive again.
Thank you for adding so much energy and talent to the 2004 San
Francisco Pride Main Stage Hot Music Line-up."
