"Here’s a group on a mission: let’s take some old jazz and pop songs and make them swing, really swing!"
Dave Rogers WTJU 102.9 FM, Richmond VA
"...a crew of Milwaukee jazzbos through a delightfully mixed big band program, they hit it right out of the box with a swinging, commercial energy that's inclusive and invites everyone into the tent---particularly if they want to hear some killer blowing, all home grown and away from the beaten path. High octane, high energy and a high old grand time. Well done."
