Here's What They're Saying!

This was the best Big Band show I've seen in a long time. The last time I saw anything this good was the Count Basie Orchestra at the Fairmont Venetian Room. Two thumbs up. ”

Band leader and drummer Steve Snyder, led the band swinging with energy and excitement ... saxophonist Dan Willis laid down one inventive solo after another ...... bass bone player Tim Phelan was giving a master class on trombone playing, and fiery lead trumpet player Eric Eidbo was spot on all night.....a show not to be missed. We will make your event a success”
