Seen and heard…
The band played to a capacity crowd when featured on the Chase Main Stage of the 2010 Detroit International Jazz Festival, and played the Michigan Jazz Festival 5 years in a row. We've also played the Brantford (Ontario) International Jazz Festival and others in Toledo and Port Huron, MI. We play club dates in some of the best-known Detroit jazz clubs, including Baker’s Keyboard Lounge and Cliff Bell’s, and are also followed by Salsa Dance Club enthusiasts.
My wife and I were at your show last night at the Dirty Dog Jazz Cafe. The band was/is absolutely fantastic!!! Smooth, slick, clean, cool Latin Jazz. Great arrangements. Great dynamics. Great grooving. Great soloing. Great musicianship. We were in front and at one point we turned around to see THE ENTIRE ROOM dancing behind us in between the tables!!! Can't wait to see you guys again!!!!!!!!
