Cakewalkin' Jass Band - a powerhouse
territory band headed up by Ray Heitger out of Toledo. They’re one of the oldest continuously working New Orleans style bands in the country,
and always a COHJS fan favorite!
Cincy River Rats - a high-energy new band with a bunch of Cincy Conservatory cats. We’ve had them strut their stuff for us before, and they put on a great show that gets the dance floor hoppin’!
The Buckeye Tailgaters - A band full of well-known heavy hitters, the Tailgaters started as a pep rally quartet in 1997 and have lauded the OSU Buckeyes in song ever since.
The band jumps at chances to expand to the full Dixieland lineup and repertoire!
The lineup is Jim Garee, cornet; Vaughn Wiester of the FJO blowin' his 'bone, Larry Nusser (North Side JB) on piano, Tommy Swisher (also North Side) drums, Sid Townsend (High St Stompers) on bass, and Will England, soprano sax.
