Jass Two Plus One–Hot Swing Jazz!
Jass Two Plus One plays Hot Swing Jazz from the ’20’s and ’30’s. First Class professional musicians bring the comedy, characters, and history of the enchanting “Jass” music. They recreate the romance and adventure of the Jazz Age. Our new Clarinet/Saxman, Dick Saunders is a former Oregon Symphony Pops Concert soloist and LA studio musician, who began his career at age 4 singing on the radio in New York! Jazz singer/guitarist Steve Boden, once a road musician, was caught in the eruption of Mt. St. Helens, returning from a gig in Wilbur, Washington. And bassist John Walling has played the legendary Hollywood Bowl!
Jass Two Plus One can do staged events as well as an unplugged, strolling format! Also, they include SEASONAL material for holidays.
The group is available to travel approximately 100 miles from their Portland area base.

Praise for Jass Two Plus One:
“… They (Jass Two Plus One) were here last night and they are awesome. All middle age men. One played soprano Sax, there was a guitar and a bass fiddle. They all had professional careers, the bass played was a member of the Hollywood Symphony, the sax player started at age 4 on radio in New York, taught music for years. The guitar player played background on sound for movies, etc. But what an evening. They played for 90 minutes. They were invited to come back, so here is hoping!” Fred H., resident at Creekside Independent Living, Beaverton
More words of praise: “Jass Two surpassed our expectations!” “I cannot thank you guys enough for your great performance…you guys are just plain fun!” “We really appreciated the performance…one of the residents that has lived here 5 years said, That was the best show EVER.” “We recently enjoyed an evening with Jass II Plus I. If your audience has not heard this wonderful trio, they should give them a try. Our residents loved them!”
