"We here at Luigi's are proud to be a part of what Jordan is doing. I certainly agree with his comments about American culture and the significant connection this "period music" represents. This music was a part of my youth as well (my father was a veteran of the second world war, a period that this music was at its peak). I find it interesting to see patrons in my restaurant of many different ethnic and racial backgrounds, as well as different age groups, all truly enjoying the music that Jordan and the guys are playing. It is truly captured by something one of my bartenders said on the very first night they played... She turned to me and said, "Wow I am really digging this music. I never really pictured myself liking jazz, but this is really good." Funny how we as a culture forget some of the very treasures that have helped to mold what we are today. Good for Jordan to recognize and appreciate... We always look forward to having them."

Commenting on "The Weekender" article by Jessica De Vault - Luigi's Italian Bar and Restaurant

“Weekender: What sort of impression do you hope to make on your listeners when your band performs? Kane: We're pretty much a high jazz band - 1920s, '30s, '40s. I want to make sure we properly represent that period of that style. I want that to be the basic foundation of what we're playing. And I want to add our own personal style as far as our interpretation of the melody. The gist is to emulate that be-bop style of jazz. And I want to try to introduce people to just jazz the genre. I feel like it's been pushed to the backburner in American culture, which is sad. This is one of the main music styles that came from America. It's ingrained in American culture, and I want to make sure it stays that way. Hopefully, I'll get the popularity up to get the younger audiences to come to listen to more than just R&B, hip-hop, rock. History shows us that R&B came from jazz. So did hip-hop and rock. I feel it's something that people should look into more.”
