Swingnuts Jazz plays original and vintage jazz, high-spirited swing, and upbeat Brazilian; a crop of crafty originals along with timeless jazz classics. Singer/songwriter Peggy Wendel adds vaudevillian flair, and guitarist Pete Smith spices 'em up, gypsy-style. Philip Nakano adds a palette of flavors on tenor and soprano sax, flute, and percussion, Mark Dodge provides 'le fond' on bass, all while Andy Carr stirs and swings like crazy on piano. The band performs as a quartet or quintet at concerts, festivals, clubs, parties, restaurants, and whenever possible, in front of a good dance floor. Swingnuts Jazz' sound systems can serve up a full menu for just a few friends, or a few hundred. Great swingin' jazzy fun for all.
