ABOUT US

Together since 1987, PRIVATE PRACTICE performs an exciting blend of jazz fusion, R&B, funk, and latin rhythms that has Northern and Southern California audiences captivated. PRIVATE PRACTICE has a dynamic style that pays homage to the influences of the past without sacrificing originality.

Ranging from the band's own contemporary interpretation of Miles Davis' classic, “All Blues”, to the sensual, Brazilian melody of Ricardo Silveira's “Magical Fantasy”, PRIVATE PRACTICE's repertoire is a unique and diverse collection of music ranging from jazz and R&B grooves, to smooth vocal arrangements, featuring the superb talents of Marisa Barley and TJ Burke. Their versatile voices blend in well with the band’s musical foundation and opens up new sonic horizons for the group.

PRIVATE PRACTICE has performed at music festivals, clubs, and private events from the San Francisco Bay Area to San Diego, including a special performance for former President Bill Clinton. Their first CD is a recording of jazz cover tunes entitled First Take. PRIVATE PRACTICE is moving to elevated musical plateaus - with always a surprise in reserve.
