"A dangerously fun ensemble... a very hip combination full of vocal intensity and good musical chops."

- Johnny Alfred Williams
 

 
"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!

Tré 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!"

- YELP Review

 

"Dust off that martini shaker one more time, folks- the cocktail movement is not quite dead….that is, at least if music like this remains readily available!  

Dangerous 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."

- Russell Brubeck

 

"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."

- Paul F. Etcheverry, San Francisco's Finest Music, January 2005

 

"The 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 Carl Weathersby's cover "Feels Like Rain" at Buddy Guy's Legends have I felt such energy.”

- Michael Richard, A..P. Stumps, San Jose, CA

 

"OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCE!  Made my travels to the west coast memorable and refreshing. Seriously, Two thumbs, toes and hell okay... ALL of my appendages up!"

- The Louisiana Music Collect

 

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

"You should have been our headliner for Saturday San Francisco Pride this 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."

- San Francisco Pride Staff, June 2004

 

"Great arrangements and interpretation of such timeless jazz pieces.  Four thumbs up!  We especially compliment your drummer, he kicks some serious martini jazz ass!  Thank you, we will be back with our friends for more."

- Jeff Handbook, January 2004

"She's beautiful and in charge with her outstanding four octave vocal range. She is sassy, bluesy yet darkly compelling. You can sometimes even hear a 'Wink' in her voice."

- Melinda McFerrin, September 2003

 

"Take a saxophone, percussion, guitar, acoustic bass, and a jazz vocalist; add some olives, passion and black velvet, shake and stir thoroughly for 3 hours in a comfortable romantic corner with the one you love."

- Mark Abate

"Martini lounge music for people who love jazz at it's best."

- David Cooley

"Swinging, swaying, oscillating feelings... early Coltrane with an inherent sense of fun and adventure.

- Clark Perry

"Straight-Ahead…cunning... classic dangerous indeed."

- Edward Franks

"What an amazing show that was. I can't believe I was so moved by the music." 

- Silvia Ruben
