skillfully delivers the sound of Paris ala 1930’s and 40’s. Masters of Swing Jazz they’re not afraid
to bring you the added tastes of Bourbon Street in New Orleans, maybe a trip to San Antonio for a taste of Western Swing!

Fats Waller and Tom Waits, adding a completely new dimension to his group. Somewhere between studying music, playing live and teaching, Rich
