Kaye Roze


When you want a truly jazzy and classy band, Kaye Roze is dedicated to making your event a happy musical memory. Dynamic, entertaining, versatile, passionate . . . . Kaye Roze whether performing as a duo or swinging with a six-piece band is the music you want.


When Kaye sings, she tells the story from her heart. In the spirit of Judy Garland, she loves to entertain and is at her best in front of an audience. Her wide vocal range allows her to manipulate her voice to sound like anything she wants from a packing a wallop on a gutsy blues or energetic swing tune to a passionate ballad to classical high tones or the voice of a 16 year old. Kaye is described as "the little girl with a big voice."

In the early 1990’s she began singing jazz after attending jazz vocal classes with Roger Letson and at Madeline Eastman’s Jazz Camp West. Kaye then formed a band called The Jazz Affair. She has performed with "first call" Bay Area jazz musicians in clubs and at events such as Café Fino, Katie Blooms, San Francisco Fairmont Hotel, Claremont Hotel, Niccolino's Garden Cafe, The Agenda Lounge, Hyatt Regency, Prevot's, Art and Wine Festivals, and charter ships in San Francisco and more. Corporations and clubs which have engaged her such as Cisco Systems, Sakata Seed, Magellan, Sony and The Rotary Club for their company events have been very pleased, as stated in their testimonials. At the grand opening of Smart & Final the coordinators said the music was perfect for the setting they were trying to achieve. Kaye Roze Jazz Affair is dedicated to making each performance a happy musical memory.

Kaye performs as a soloist or arranges various duo/trio/combo configurations incorporating a variety of instruments and musical styles including jazz standards, big band, swing, country, blues, and early rock.
