During COVID, the band’s long time bandleader Eddy Davis passed away, and the future of the band was in question. But the band has gone through many lineup changes before. The latest group includes original members since 1996 – Conal Fowkes (piano), Simon Wettenhall (trumpet) and Jerry Zigmont (trombone) – and new members Josh Dunn (banjo) and Brian Nalepka (bass). Kevin Dorn returns on drums, having played with the band in the late 90s.

The tour dates coincide with the release of Woody Allen’s 50th film, Coup de Chance, in Europe. So there will be lots of activity later this year.
