With their sparkling vocal harmonies, solid jazz chops, quick-witted banter and cool vintage suits, the Jaztronauts have stage presence in spades. A staple of the Twin Cities swing scene for the past decade, the band possesses the unusual ability to be both versatile and distinctive, and have a repertoire deep enough to be tailored to almost any venue and event.


Named at the Minnesota Music Awards as the 2001/2002 Acoustic Jazz Artist of the Year, the Jaztros have appeared as the house band at several clubs, a local television show and for a minor league baseball club. The boys even did a tour of duty in Europe, playing grueling 5 1/2 hour gigs, six nights a week at a jazz club in Switzerland.  The Jaztronauts' debut CD, "Swank,"

received local critical acclaim, and several cuts from the album made the top 10 of the “swingtop40.com” charts.


The joy that each of the players takes in his work is evident, and the fun the band is having never fails to inspire the crowd. Though the Jaztronauts'

musical style is hard to categorize, it is without question very easy to enjoy.
