A great and long-time favorite with both COHJS and SwingColumbus people. They've played all over the place - Elkhart Jazz Fest,
Davenport Bix Fest,
Tribute to Bix in Racine.
And their steady gig at Jimmy's Ladder 11 in Dayton, the 1st Tuesday of the month. They've played in Belgium and Canada and across the US of A. Save yourself a bunch of airfare and gas money and come enjoy this swingin' thing right here near home.

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.
