Dually Noted is a jazz duo/trio based in the Southern Ontario Golden Horseshoe, servicing the Niagara, Hamilton, Burlington, and Oakville area. We feature a number of top, experienced musicians - vocalists Katie Ross and Meagan Luchko, guitarists George Tirpko, Thom Mason, and Nick Serbina, and Jim Slominski on double bass. While primarily a jazz band that is continually adding more and more songs to our jazz repertoire, we also play a rich mixture of standard and contemporary pop, folk, and blues - to offer a full top to bottom one-stop group to play just about any type of event.

Making Musical Memories. We offer either an instrumental duo consisting of guitar and upright bass or a vocal trio with vocalist, guitar, and upright bass. Perfect to fit in with the ambiance you want to create or your budget. Our popular packages include ceremonies, cocktails, and dinners for weddings, private house or office parties, and corporate events. Our specialty is performing for small, intimate weddings. Being experienced and trained musicians, and very quick studies, Dually Noted can adapt and learn songs for any type of themed event. We welcome requests. We can make your wedding, private party, or corporate event unique and styled just the way you like it.


Front man Jim Slominski, on string and electric basses, began to play double bass in Montreal in the early 1980s. He studied with Eric Lagace, the great Montreal symphonic and jazz bass player (Eric was Oliver Jones' bass player for many years, until Jones retired).

He is a sought-after and busy sideman in the Niagara, performing a wide variety of music and styles with many various musicians and for numerous events. He has been the leader and upright bass player for the jazz duo/trio "Dually Noted" for over five years, as well as performing in jazz vocal trios with some of the top vocalists from Niagara, Hamilton, and Toronto.




All pricing is determined on an event by event basis, and is based on the style of music chosen, type of event, location, and duration.



Affordable prices and willing to discuss and work within the budget of the event, to everyone's mutual satisfaction.



Always on time and well-rehearsed. Come with our own high quality portable sound equipment, designed specifically for acoustic high-fidelity. Appropriately attired for all events. Professional, courteous behaviour.



Performed at over 500 private and public events over the years, including the TD Niagara Jazz Festival for the last three years. As well as weddings, birthday parties, holiday parties, festivals, anniversaries, corporate events, grand openings - all types of celebrations and events - at wineries, cafes, hotels, living rooms, art galleries, backyards, outdoor stages, and gazebos.



We love playing music. It's that simple. And we just want to provide the best possible musical experience for any event that we play at.

I just wanted to extend my sincere thank you to you for your beautiful music skills on the evening of our wedding - it was wonderful! Best day of my life!!!! We look forward to hearing you play again soon!

- Steph C

We would like to extend our thanks -- and those of the other attendees -- for your performance at our fundraising party. Although we were busy socializing, playing games and, of course, eating, your music was much enjoyed and added to a very entertaining evening. We found your playing competent and professional, and the choice of jazz classics excellent and appropriate for the occasion and the audience. It was a pleasure to be able to listen to your performances while still being able to listen to the conversation around us.

Dually Noted did such an amazing job on our wedding day. The music was absolutely perfect including the timing and introduction of both of the processionals. I can't tell you enough how much we appreciate the beautiful music you played on our wedding day. It totally set the mood and everyone commented about how awesome it was. All members of Dually Noted are extremely talented. I would recommend you to anyone that I know having an event in the Niagara region. Also, you were very organized which I greatly appreciate given I am the same way. Thank you for reaching out so early to ensure you had all of the music properly selected, organized and well rehearsed well in advance of our wedding. It's the little details like that which make all of the difference. You are extremely professional and I can't thank you enough for making our wedding day the best day of our lives.

- Krista and Sandor

It was really wonderful having you all play for us. We'll let our friends know how great you are. Everybody raved about the music.

- Jer and Katie

Just wanted to thank you so much for the amazing performance! I don't think anything could have been better. All of our guests kept telling us how impressed they were with you guys. We had some advice cards on the table and it had a spot where it asked guests to draw a picture of their favorite part of the wedding.. quite a few of the cards mentioned the band as their favorite part.. we even got a drawing of you playing the upright bass.

We couldn't be happier we decided to go with you guys for the wedding. Please don't hesitate to have any of your future clients contact me for a review.. I would be happy to share my great experience with them.

- Leah and Rob

The fundraising event was a great success--very positive reports with regards to the music and the musicians. And this was in a room filled with musicians! I will certainly pass on your contact information to anyone I know looking for music for their event.

Thank you for performing at our wedding ceremony at the marina. You really set the stage and classed up a beautiful day on the lake. The guests also loved your set during the cocktail hour. We got a lot of compliments all around on your music!
