The group was started by Dr. Richard, cornetist and Dixieland enthusiast in 1993. He remains the leader and spokesman for the group which plays all types of Dixieland, including blues, ballads and the standard dixie tunes that people recognize and enjoy. Many of these tunes are suitable for dancing.
At full force the instrumentation consists of a front line including cornet, trombone and clarinet. The rhythm section consists of piano, bass and drums. A banjo is frequently added for additional rhythm.
The music is played in classical dixieland style. All of the musicians strive to help each other rather than grab the spotlight. The band captures the old New Orleans sound and knows how to play to the crowd.
