Cell Block 7 is a California jazz band favoring the West Coast traditional jazz sound of Lu Watters, Turk Murphy and the Bay City Jazz Band of the '50s in a classic jazz lineup led by two cornets. Their professional approach coupled with a great sound and an extensive repertoire. Most of the present band has been together for ten years or more. Cell Block 7 adds entertaining versatility by doubling their talents on three double-bell euphoniums, producing an array of different sounds and rhythms -- from fast, exciting trios to smooth and mellow blues -- all in wonderful low-brass harmony.

Brian Holland and Danny Coots
Exciting, exhilarating, and exhausting!” is probably the best (and most alliterative) way to describe the jazz duo of Holland & Coots. Brian Holland and Danny Coots began performing together in 2010 after spending decades individually on the jazz and ragtime circuits honing their skills on piano and drums, respectively. Since joining forces, they’ve been on a mission to introduce audiences all over the world to their style of music and fun. With a delightful mix of jazz, blues, stride, boogie, pop, and ragtime, Holland & Coots have created something for every taste. This winning duo has been the driving rhythmic foundation for bands like the Titan Hot Seven and B.A.D. Rhythm, and has several recordings to their credit.

Tom Barnebey - Beyond Salvation Jazz Band
Is it the biggest small combo around? Or the smallest big band? Trad jazz fans discovering Beyond Salvation may debate that point, but there is no argument about the variety of hot jazz sounds this quintet can produce, all evoking the fun and excitement of the Roaring Twenties. The Beyond Salvation Jazz Band is an aggregation of five versatile musicians performing on about 20 instruments (not counting kazoo and duck call). The combinations go on and on. There are hot dance numbers with three saxes wailing away, piano interludes, south sea island songs, including a ukulele ensemble, and hot jazz with instrumentation reminiscent of of Bix and his gang. Beyond Salvation's ever expanding musical repertoire focuses on jazz tunes and songs of the 1920s. An old pop tune like "Pretty Baby" may appear on the program, along side more obscure numbers like "The Merry Widow's Got a Sweetie Now".
