Merging the instrumentation of Early New Orleans Style and Chicago Style jazz, the group utilizes clarinet, tenor saxophone, trumpet, trombone, piano, banjo/guitar, sousaphone/bass, and drum set. The ensemble studies original and contemporary recordings and prepares their own arrangements with an emphasis on collective and individual improvisation, and is currently coached by Dr. Jackie Lamar.
