The Woodpeckers joyfully play the classic swing music of the 1920’s and 30’s. In a highly improvisatory, good-humored, spontaneous, conversational, and interactive style, they freshly interpret the exhilarating music of that time, when jazz was being born and was embraced and celebrated by young and old. The quartet includes Ron Kelley – tenor sax, Walter Slowinski -clarinet, Ty Gibbons – upright bass, and Mark Anagnostopulos – rhythm guitar. All members sing.
