The Jazz-Alachian Playboys are a musical experiment conducted by four fabulous musicians.
They take jazz standards and old fiddle tunes and mash them up. An old fiddle tune becomes a swing arrangement or a standard bluegrass vocal song turns into slow blues.
The Jazz-Alachian Playboys is our audio engineer/music manager Tom Ohmsen on mandolin. Jerry Wood on the Five string electric fiddle. Eli Williams on guitar and Brian Jones, who plays with the Kings and Cimarron and other bands around Roanoke, is on upright bass.
We caugth up with The Jazz-Alachian Playboys at Parkway Brewing Company in Salem, Virginia. You can see the full show here.
