What to Expect
Swing from some of the world's best professional musicians.
Jazz clarinet. From the King of Swing to the King of the Clarinet, some of the greatest legends of the Big Band Era played the licorice stick. Today, the clarinet lives on in the virtuosity of Roger Campbell and his sextet, After Midnight! Since 1997, this fabulous group of musicians has performed thousands of concerts around the world for jazz festivals, clubs, weddings, summer concerts, and more!
Our instrumentation is unlike any other band in the region and very few in the world -- we feature Clarinet, Vibraphone, Piano, Bass, Guitar/Vocals, and Drums. What's a Vibraphone? It's a lot like bells or marimba, but has vibrato when you hit the metal bars. From time to time we are also fortunate to work with some of the best "chick" singers around including Jodi Renee, Wende Harston, Lisa Bell, and Joni Janak. We've even worked with actress Lea Thompson and her daughter Madelyn Deutch!
We've done thousands of concerts, weddings, events, festivals, dances, and clubs over the years. Some of the more memorable ones include:
Sacramento Jazz Jubilee
Capital City Jazz Festival
Evergreen Jazz Festival
Taste of Colorado
Cherry Creek Arts Festival
Jazz in the Sangres Festival
We feature a number of tribute shows to Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, and Lionel Hampton -- perfect for your next concert. We've also done over 200 weddings! Our book includes at least 5000 songs, so we can do just about anything that's jazz or swing.
It's sophisticated jazz unlike anything you've heard before!
