Her jazz, swing and bossa nova groups have appeared at well-respected Toronto venues, including Jazz Bistro, Lula Lounge, and The Rex Hotel and Jazz Bar, and she's known for her vintage outfits and warm rapport with audiences.

If you’re getting married, you want to relax and enjoy every moment of your day while all the elements you’ve dreamed about come together effortlessly. Beverly works closely with the couple that's getting married to choose the ideal songs for certain special moments, to discuss timing, and co-ordinate with the emcee, best man and /or event planner. If you’re planning to tie the knot, ask for Beverly’s Wedding Music Tips Sheet and a free consultation (she'll come with song lists in hand). More than five years’ radio work makes Beverly a good host or impromptu emcee when the need arises. Years of experience performing at private and public events have given Beverly an acute understanding of how to strategically plan music and entertainment for a variety of audiences and occasions.
Here are a few comments from some of Beverly’s wedding and corporate clients:
“It was a fabulous evening and thank you so much for everything. The
evening went so fast I could not believe it was over before I could even
think! And you guys did a fabulous job!
See you next year!”

“Pete and I were so incredibly pleased with your band and the music was FANTABULOUS! You kept people on the dance floor until the very last minute...you are the best!
We're so sad that it's all over, but we had such a blast (what a memorable night!). By the way, you looked fantastic! Loved your outfit!
We look forward to hearing you sing again someday soon.”
Laura & Peter's Wedding - Eglinton Grand Theatre
“May I say a big thank you for your wonderful contribution to the cocktail portion of our recent AGM Dinner? It was a real pleasure having your Group's music set the stage for our event of the year.
The music was very much appreciated, perfectly modulated and the right vintage for the venue and the occasion.
Thank you for making the evening so special.”

Bev Taft and her combo performed at two events for RNAO a couple of years ago. Her performances were both charming and very well received. Her lovely and pure voice, supported by her musicians, is an absolute delight. She has the ability to sing all genres with ease and has gone from strength to strength over the years. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Beverly Taft to perform at any venue/event. She'll ask what you expect from the performance, and she'll give it to you!
The beautiful sounds of The Beverly Taft Trio added such an air of elegance to our Wild Ball event in support of the Toronto Wildlife Centre. Several genres of music played included enchanting jazz standards and beautiful rhythmic Brazilian music which delighted those in attendance. Always professional, they beautifully dovetailed their music with other activities throughout the night, even as our agenda sometimes shifted! Pros all the way. I would highly recommend the Beverly Taft Trio!!

I hired Beverly and her band for the Art Gallery of Hamilton's annual gala event. Our audience loved them. They enhanced the energy of the evening. Working with Beverly is always a delight. Her and her musicians are professional and easy to work with. I recommend them for corporate functions and themed events. Beverly is talented. Her stage presence is fun and engaging.
