'One Straw Revolution' plays the standards from the Swing era, when jazz, popular music and dance music were all the same tunes. Back then it was Big Bands, 18 or more musicians blowing like crazy. The band's hot rhythm section with a stand up bass, and three fine soloists (two guitars and a trombone) and a vocalist brings the old tunes to life in the here and now on the dance floor.
The band consists of the following members:
Tom Major - drums
Peter McEachern - trombone
Jon Suters - guitar
Roger Suters - bass
Charlie Tokarz - sax
