The Professional Musicians of Central New York

Referral Service

Big Bands - Combos - Quartets - Trios

Welcome to the exciting world of live music! Local 78 assists potential live music purchasers in the Central New York area to find the right artist or group for their party, wedding, festival, corporate function or any other event that requires live music.

We appreciate your interest in hiring live music for the occasion you’re planning. Listed within this directory are groups of professionals interested in helping to make your event a great success. Take time to review the listing and identify those musicians or groups whose musical styles compliment your needs. A group’s contact person will be happy to discuss with you all of the various aspects of the engagement (their performing styles, fees, etc.) in conjunction with your specific needs. For example, you may need to know if someone in the group acts as an em-cee, or you may wish to have a specific piece of music performed during the event. Above all, you’ll want to avoid engaging a jazz group if the musical tastes of your party are country oriented! We’re confident that hiring live music will enable you to engage the best musical match for your event.
