Seattle Weekly

"Casey MacGill and the Blue Four Trio played '30s and '40s swing and jump blues. The acoustics in the room are fantastic—who knew?—and the band's set was like a live version of KUOW's Swing Years and Beyond."

Seattle Post -Intelligencer

"Buttery Voiced Swinger"

New York Times

"Of the show's soloists,... only Casey MacGill, the ukulele-strumming band leader, has the kind of shrugged-off charm one associates with being cool in the swing era."

New York Times review of the musical Swing!

Atomic Magazine

"A crooner of the highest caliber."

Thank You Letter for Casey MacGill Orchestra, Jazz Under the Stars

Performance:  Jazz Under the Stars, Thursday August 8, 2013


Dear Casey,


On behalf of Pacific Lutheran University and the Music Department, I extend our sincere appreciation to you and your group for performing at Jazz Under the Stars. We had great turnouts this year, and some very lovely weather.  Besides our loyal jazz lovers, there were local leaders, art representatives, and educators present. Many had very complimentary things to say about your talented group. I heard many comments that you were the highlight of the season, if not numerous seasons! In addition, the audience enjoyed the unique experience of hearing some of the Northwest’s finest musicians free of charge! This could not have happened without your generosity.

Please extend our very best wishes and sincere thanks to the members of your group. We appreciate your contributions to our successful jazz tradition at PLU.

The ukelele player Casey was a DOLL! He was so cute, and he even went into the bride's room per my request and serenaded her since she wasn't out for the welcome house. Love him!!
Now don’t let this go to your head!
Thanks, Elaine
