The 950 Local / Express

“…enough raw energy to power a small town…”
audience member 2018

This band has two versions of itself, both with the mission to make people dance

This band will make your toes tap, hips sway and put some boogie in you jive pants, playing the great music of Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Jimmie Lunceford, Benny Goodman and Ella Fitzgerald etc. Local jazz dogs Ricki Malet, Ben Collins, Mace Francis, Dan Garner, Wayne Slater, Greg Brenton and Annie Mitchell will make you smile and dance as they drive The 950 Local straight to swing town.

Annie Mitchell – Voice
Ricki Malet – Trumpet
