With musical backgrounds as varied as the tunes they now perform together, they bring with them playing experience in everything from classical, world music, country, folk, to good old rock ‘n’ roll. This group of friends first met as members of The Prime Time Big Band, and in 2014 they formed this smaller combo to further explore a mutual love of jazz.
Expect to hear a great mix of music including tunes from the "jazz age" 1920's, the 1930's swing era, covers of 1940's big band, jazz tunes made famous in 1950-60's, and a few modern surprises!
