Hella Fitzgerald -- from bebop to hiphop -- is a deluxe party band collective based in Northern California, specializing in vintage jazz and blues, classic soul, funk, R&B, 90's and contemporary songs.
Showcasing some of the finest musicians in the region, Hella Fitzgerald transitions seamlessly throughout different eras with style and grace. Supporting events of any size, theme and budget, they incorporate songs by Amy Winehouse, Frank Sinatra, Stevie Wonder, Lizzo, James Brown, Bruno Mars, and of course, Ella Fitzgerald. Collectively our musicians have played at festivals worldwide and have toured with Lauryn Hill, Lyrics Born, Fantastic Negrito, Michael Franti, Pete Escovedo, Sheila E, Tony Toni Tone, Goapele, and more.
Though we work with some of the top agencies in the area, Hella Fitzgerald is a self-managed band. This helps us keep our prices low while providing a high quality experience.
