Livestream + In Person $25
Catch these incredible musicians as they fuse virtuosic performances. Not to be missed!!

Saxophonist Barrie Sorenson plays with such intensity and heat we keep the Victoria Fire Department on speed dial. And while organist Dr Tony Genge can not repair your broken tibia he can play so beautifully you will forget you even had one! An international treasure, Miguelito Valdes is probably the greatest trumpet player you will ever hear in your life! And Joey “The Godfather of Swing” Smith will be on guitar and demonstrating why he is Victoria’s most beloved musician. My name is Damian Graham, I hit drums, write band bio’s and provide narration where none is needed.

“If I had a dollar for every time someone said to me “You’re always playing with the best guys in town.” I would have close to $67. So when I hired this group of fine musicians and needed a name, well it seemed all too obvious."
