We're bringing in the High Street Stompers, a powerhouse hometown favorite we haven't heard for a while. Now with New Orleans born + bred Milo Mannino on the trumpet, very ably filling the very big shoes of the recently retired Tom Battenburg! Formed in 1987 when all the original members were Professors in the School of Music at The Ohio State University, this is one of the most polished trad jazz bands anywhere.
The star-studded band ... with just a little bit of what they've done before showing up to play for us:
Milo Mannino, trumpet (NOLA born + bred, played with Smokey Robinson, Four Tops, Anne Murray, etc)
Michael Cox, clarinet (Capital Conservatory of Music faculty, CJO, Brasileira, etc)
Vaughn Wiester, trombone (Woody Herman band, leader of the acclaimed FJO, CJO)
Sid Townsend, tuba and string bass (Capital Univ faculty, Broadway Across America)
Jim Rupp, drums (toured with Woody Herman, Maynard Ferguson, and Glenn Miller).
