...and we mean "live". No recorded tracks. No two gigs are the same. What you get is what you see and hear from us only as we offer not-so-straight-ahead ensemble music - jazz, bopHop! and otherwise. In many configurations. We are nothing if not flexible...
Our jazz is smokin' or driftin', inspired by the likes of songsters George Gershwin and Cole Porter and innovators Charlie Parker, Miles Davis and Thelonious Monk. We can also present this music in our unique bophop! fashion (dance-til-you-drop bebop and more). Otherwise includes music outside and in between, including R&B, reggae, pop, bossa, and our completely spontaneous conversations. We have huge fun playing it all...
