About the Band:
Inspired by the Big Band Era of Jazz, Dandy Wellington and his Band have taken the sounds of the 1930's and 40's and created a world of well dressed music. With a passion for obscure songs steeped in the Jazz tradition, Dandy Wellington has assembled a catalog of music that invokes an atmosphere of class. From the golden age of cinema, to the bounce of New Orleans, each song is hand selected and played to perfection by a band cut from the cloth of elegance.
One of the highlights of Repeal Day was the opportunity to perform with The New Wonders! My friend Mike Davis has a truly sensation band playing a beautifully crafted collection of arrangements inspired by records from the 1920s. Here’s a little taste of "There'll Be Some Changes Made" (1921) by Billy Higgins and Benton Overstreet.
