This is an amazing big band jazz orchestra with a music library of classic songs spanning the entire jazz era. The repertoire includes pre-jazz marches and society songs from the 1890's through the 1910's, then bursts into the jazz era beginning in 1917 with arrangements through current writers of today. Hot jazz of the 1920's and Swing/Big Band of the 1930's and 1940's will get every Wedding party onto the dance floor, entertain corporate events and enhance any Carnival Ball Tableau.
The Artists ... fine tuned craftsmen ... simply the best at what they love to do!
As Hansen says, "so long as we perform with intensity, a groove and swing, everything falls into place."
"We can take an older arrangement and swing it with a unique New Orleans feel adding an amazing dimension to this already beautiful music"
