A modern jazz band with a happy sound!

The band has been around for over 20 years and has recorded 13 records. They play highly accessible modern jazz, with an emphasis on melody, groove and tight ensemble work. They feel they are continuing a great tradition of small band jazz for which they have the greatest respect. They will be joined at the Holt Festival by the fabulous singer, Liz Fletcher.
