Performing music by icons of early jazz such as Jelly Roll Morton, Duke Ellington, James P. Johnson, King Oliver, and Bix Beiderbecke, as well as lesser known musical stylists, territory bands, and innovators such as the Missourians, Fess Williams, Alex Hill, and Jabbo Smith, the Sextet has cemented its reputation as a favorite among both listening audiences and dancers. The band has performed at the Portland Jazz Festival, Portland Lindy Exchange, Camp Jitterbug in Seattle, the Seaside Jazz Festival, and all the major Portland area clubs past and present including Jimmy Mak’s, the Blue Monk, Secret Society and Duff’s Garage.
