Dedicated to energetic, swinging performances of traditional jazz and tunes from the Great American Songbook as well as European favorites by the likes of Django Reinhardt, the group has performed widely throughout Ohio and West Virginia, and has broadcast performances further afield via live radio and web broadcasts.
