Having Jeff play in our store has been amazing! His music creates a special ambience… And a certain energy that our customers and staff love. We feel very fortunate to have him play at our store. He’s a very talented musician!
~Craig & Lisa, Southern Lights, Burnsville, MN

He was incredible. I asked for a Tijuana Brass song, a Willie Nelson song and a Louis Armstrong song. He played the TB song on trumpet, sang the Willie song and played Flugelhorn, and sang and played the Louis song on what he called a pocket trumpet. I played trumpet in high school and I don’t know how he can do all that!
~ Robert, Hudson, WI

The Jeff Carver Solo Show

The Jeff Carver Solo Show is a one-of-a-kind musical and entertainment experience, no matter what the venue or event. Jeff expertly performs with high-end, proprietary backing tracks to give his audiences a multi-faceted “full band’ musical experience. Jeff plays on Trumpet when he wants that certain jazz standard/pop music sound, on Flugelhorn when he is looking for the hip smooth jazz or romantic ballad vibe, and on his ‘pocket trumpet’ when he desires the Louis Armstrong/New Orleans kind of feel. Jeff also enjoys putting his own vocal style to many of your favorite tunes from legends like Sinatra and Dean Martin, to Van Morrisson and Michael Buble’.

Jeff’s horn playing can be incredibly warm and cozy for those small gatherings. His haunting and passionate sound is perfect for smaller venues, similar to Chris Botti or Chet Baker. He can also manage the volume by using an array of mutes, providing Jeff with a virtual pallet of quiet sound choices when background music is required. However, you can also find Jeff’s soaring trumpet on the bigger venues where a more ‘front of house’ sound is needed. So, whether a concert, show, background music, or cocktail time, The Jeff Carver Solo Show is your choice!

In addition to the above, you will find Jeff performing at many Weddings, Gala’s, and Funeral Services throughout the year. He also performs at various VIP and special events, and private get-togethers. Furthermore, Jeff is a very popular choice for house parties, backyard BBQs, and Holiday events…especially where there is a need for multiple styles of music in one event!! And, don’t forget, if you have a birthday, anniversary, or life event coming up, hire Jeff to perform your favorite song, in his studio, and send you the video! Jeff will even personalize it for you!

Few musical groups can keep up with Jeff’s more than 200 songs in his repertoire. He features styles such as:

  • Standards
  • Jazz
  • Pop
  • Smooth Jazz
  • Latin
  • New Orleans
  • Soft Rock
  • Contemporary
  • Gospel

Jeff Carver plays music from a variety of artists including Frank Sinatra, Herb Alpert, Stevie Wonder, Elton John, Michael Jackson, EWF, Hall & Oates, Ray Charles, Miles Davis, Michael Buble’, Bill Withers, Etta James, The Beatles, Willie Nelson, Louis Armstrong, Van Morrison, The Eagles, Billy Joel, Glen Campbell, Eric Clapton, Chuck Mangione, Anita Baker, Simon & Garfunkel, Chicago, James Taylor, Elvis Presley, Marvin Gaye, Tony Bennett, Chris Botti, Willie Nelson, Diana Krall, Antonio Jobim.
