Together through their diverse performance experiences, they bring a fresh perspective on big band music that is deeply rooted in the jazz tradition while incorporating other genres and styles. The band is made up of some of New York City's finest musicians that they have met in their respective musical journeys. The band plays original music written by both Ron and
Becca. At this show we will pay tribute to jazz giants John Coltrane, Al Jarreau, and Clark Terry. Our mission is to encourage and show people of all walks of life that is it possible to work together to create something beautiful and give back to the community.
