A rare treat in these parts – The Sunset Stomp Jazz Band from Indianapolis!
Founded by Robin Hopkins + Kathleen Miller in 2010, and named after the often overlooked Louis Armstrong tune, The Sunset Café Stomp, they've taken the jazz community by storm, playing at venues across the region (Decatur Jazz Fest, Grugelfest, ...) and as far away as the Suncoast Jazz Classic in Clearwater Beach, FL. They also play dances like the Naptown Stomp Lindy Hop Society, Indiana University, and Rose-Hulman's swing dance clubs. All that in addition to their regular gig at the Jazz Kitchen at 54th + College in Indianapolis.
Personnel: Kathleen Miller, vocals; Robin Hopkins, banjo + vocals; Larry McWilliams, trumpet; Mike Lucas, piano; Bill James, clarinet; Dan Hughey, trombone; and John Valdez, drums. Jesse Wittman is the regular on bass, but Steve Woerner will sub for our show. Visit Sunset Stomp's website for more!
Another great favorite band which COHJS has loved for years! They appear at many of the big festivals and play for lots of dances (including our good friends and partners at SwingColumbus), while still holding down their steady gig at Jimmy's Ladder 11 the 1st Tuesday of the month. Shuffle on over to their YouTube Channel or their facebook page for the full story!
Come on out! Listen ~ dance ~ catch up with friends old + new ... bring family + friends too!

This thing's been going since 1971 with a reliably great turnout of musicians, dancers + fans. Check out Wikipedia and RedHotJazz.com- the Coon Sanders Nighthawks Orchestra formed in 1919 and was at its peak from 1926-1932. Listen to their official anthem Nighthawk Blues – great bari sax solo work! But don't miss this.
