Martini Lunch

Flash back to the early sixties when the Mad Men execs went out for a classy Martini Lunch accompanied by the sounds of Sinatra, Bobby Darin, and company.  Besides providing cool backgrounds or hot swing, Martini Lunch also puts their signature spin on soul, blues, and pop tunes that fit that classic vibe.

Martini Lunch can be augmented to fit the needs of the occasion and client, adding saxophone and/or guitar. Past clients include: The City of Chicago, Pepsi, Elmhurst Art Museum, Navy Pier Entertainment, McDonalds, Cog Hill C.C., Sears, Corporate Productions, DuPage Pads Charity, and many, many more, plus numerous wedding receptions and private parties/special events, as well as shows for colleges, park districts, festivals, and night clubs.

From cool backgrounds to hot swing and beyond, Martini Lunch plays the field of musical dreams.

  • Martini Lunch

It was simply an unbelievable experience working with Tim Hays and Martini Lunch. These guys are first class, very easy to work with, and worth every penny. Our wedding guests had a great time and continue to compliment us on how great the band was. They arranged a wonderful set of songs for everyone to enjoy and dance to. Leading up to the wedding, Tim was always helpful and friendly with responding to all our questions. I cannot express my gratitude enough to Tim and his band. Martini Lunch was a big reason why our wedding was such a success!
