About The Downbeat Jazz Orchestra
In 2005 a bunch of us ‘has beens’ decided to put together a band for us, a band that would cater to our own selfish musical desires. None of that shlocky dance band crap, just the greatest Big Band charts we never got to play in high school. We play mostly for us and only the music that we like. Its nice to play for money, but its really about the fun for us. Louder, higher, faster!!!
