RJ Spangler and John "Tbone" Paxton

Detroit drummer/bandleader/music activist, and Tbone Paxton, trombone/vocals, expect to cover a lot of musical ground on a Saturday afternoon. Adding saxophonists Dan Bennett and Goode Wyche III, they will be performing swing and on up to more modern types of jazz, some of it inspired by the addition of percussionist Akunda Hollis. From Fats Waller and Duke Ellington to some beautifully melodic South African jazz that RJ, Tbone, and Akunda have been exploring since the 1980s, they will add some swinging blues numbers for good measure. Band members Matt LoRusso, guitar, and Jeff Cuny, string bass, round out the group.
