We are an 11 piece ensemble, consisting of members living in southern Manitoba and we are bringing back the best hot jazz tunes of the 1920's.

Meet the talented individual who started it all:

Born and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Jonathan Alexiuk (arranger/pianist) has been performing professionally since 1996. He is a prolific arranger of vocal & instrumental music; his arrangements have been played by the Ron Paley Big Band, the Winnipeg Jazz Orchestra, the Memory Lane Orchestra, Those Guys, the U of W Downtown Vocal Jazz Choir, the Air Command Band, among many others. At various times, he fills the roles of clinician, adjudicator, instructor, accompanist, and album producer. When not performing locally and around southern Manitoba, he regularly entertains on both the Holland America and Princess cruise lines, putting his vast musical repertoire to use.
