mahaloJazz is a flexible musical group offering not-so-straight-ahead ensemble music - jazz, bopHop! and otherwise. Our jazz, whether we're smokin' or driftin', is inspired by the likes of songsters George Gershwin and Cole Porter and innovators Charlie Parker, Miles Davis and Thelonious Monk. We can also present this music in our unique bopHop! fashion (dance-til-you-drop bebop and more). Otherwise includes music outside and in between, including R&B, reggae, pop, bossa, and our completely spontaneous conversations. We have huge fun playing it all...
music for chillin' • swingin' • dancin' • groovin' • makin' you happy
music for in-the-corner background • in-your-face foreground • small gatherings • blow-out-once-in-a-lifetime parties
