Here you can find a list of the various bands and projects that I am involved with. For more details, check the individual websites, or check my schedule for when I’m playing with them next.


My traditional jazz inspired project, interpreting the music of Thelonious Monk, Charles Mingus, and Billy Strayhorn, along with a bunch of old timey favourites!

Seth Kessel & The Two Cent Band

Seth Kessel and the Two Cent Band is a five-piece, genre-bending jazz band whose vast repertoire includes everything from Prohibition-era swing and gypsy jazz to a modern take on 1950s rock ‘n’ roll.

The Bailsmen

The Bailsmen play hot jazz and gypsy swing, drawing from the inspiration of Django Reinhardt’s driving rhythm and the excitement of prohibition-era luminaries Louis Armstrong and Sidney Bechet.


A shiny, brand-spanking new pop/funk band from NYC.

The Pendulum Swings

New York’s Newest Indie-Lounge Jazz Swing Big Band are swinging out the new standards and lounging around the originals. Instant classic jazz/pop composed by acclaimed vocalist Jason Trachtenburg (Trachtenburg Family Slideshow Players).
