“Righteously retro yet youthful: traditional jazzers who dive back to prohibition-era speakeasies for inspiration. Playing clarinet/trumpet/guitar-led Dixieland hits from Waller, Ellington and Basie with zeal!”
“We saw the Trouser Tie Tailors perform at a Black Cotton Club ball and we fell in love with their energy and style. We asked them to perform at our wedding and we could not have made a better choice. What a hoot we all had, I have never seen such a great age range of people prancing around in glee! Thank you so much. ”
