About Downbeat Jazz Orchestra
In 2005 a bunch of ‘has beens’ decided to put together a band for “us” – a band that would cater to our own selfish musical desires. None of that shlocky dance band crap, just the greatest Big Band charts we never got to play in high school.  The rest is history.  We now have as many as 20 top notch musicians playing on a regular basis.  They range from music teachers to college students and retired Marine Corps band members.  We are dedicated to the art of music and performing tunes that touch our hearts and challenge us professionally.
