Audiences are delighted by “Jules and the Gents” lively Swing/ Bebop sound with a fresh style. Jules has been said to look like a modern Betty Paige with the voice of Peggy Lee. Her talent does not end there she is also a highly trained flute and sax player that adds amazing melodic leads. Rhythm section Doug Rolf (Upright Double Bass) and Don Whitaker (Percussion) have been playing together in multiple bands since the late 90's and make a solid back bone for the well-executed choice standards. Carl Basler (Guitarist) with a Masters in Music has a unique funky/jazz rhythm style and plays amazing tap your toe solos filling out what some have referred to as an "ear candy" mix. We provide a top of the line Bose sound system.

Doors open at 6 PM and the performance starts at 9 PM.
