This quartet formed when three members of the brass section of Twin Cities rock band Chooglin' broke off to start their own project, later adding drums to create a sound they call "hip shakin' beer jazz." They recently put out a second release, the EP All Day Music, recorded with Rich Mattson at Sparta Sound. 3/4 of the band, trumpeter Bob DeBoer, trombonist Zach Zins, and sousaphone player Hal Longley joined us in the studio on May 24, 2019 for a preview of their EP release show the same night at Beaner's Central.
