Fronted by the rich vocals of crooner Michael Carter, Vintage Noise is often backed by a dynamic ensemble of talented musicians from the San Francisco Bay Area. Their music, though mainly jazz and bossa nova, also includes elements of gypsy jazz, swing and tango. Vintage Noise has played in venues throughout Northern California.

"Well, if there's a time for crooning to make a resurgence, it's probably now-it's totally vintage. Latter-day crooner Michael Carter sings in the style of Sinatra. Carter is backed by some great local talent" Metro Newspaper by Stephen Layton

"We were fortunate enough to have Vintage Noise play at a winemaker’s dinner for over 120 people. The music complemented the elegant evening and added a sense of class and entertainment to the event. We received many compliments for the band from guests; and a few wineries asked for their contact information for future bookings. We could not have been more pleased. Thank you for helping to create such a wonderful evening."
