The group has a modern, refreshing sound that catches your ear with music that gives you an experience. The original repertoire and arrangements explore a melting pot of styles heavily influenced by latin, funk, swing, and classical.
The group is available in different orchestrations depending on the needs of the venue or client. We want to deliver interesting, fun, and emotional music for all occassions and all people! This means being adaptable to the very different needs of countless performance situations. Some gigs may headline our own music, some may need an atmosphere for dining, and others might need us to get a room of people dancing! Whether we're performing as a piano/organ trio, with a singer, quartet, or as a kickin' septet, the motive behind our music remains the same.!!
