Back in 1995 Mario Marques, Jason Hughes and a few of their COS classmates started this Traditional Jazz Band out of a Dixieland class. Mentored by the guys of High Sierra, they developed a style of upbeat foot stomping Dixieland Jazz. The group played in 5 Jazzaffairs. Then moved on to adulthood. Over the years they would play for special events and now are so excited to return to the stage with all these amazing bands.
