Dick's "WYSIWYG JAZZ BAND"
Welcome to the wonderful world of "WYSIWYG". What is WYSIWYG? (What You See Is What You Get), and what you get is professional. I have put together a fantastic group of musicians to create a musical style that is all our own. We perform Dixieland, Big band, Creole and Cajun styles of music, which are sure to get the joint-a-jumpin'. You may find yourself dancing in the aisles or tapin' your toes to the songs of Billy Maxted, The Worlds Greatest Jazz Band, Count Basie, Louis Armstrong, Louis Prima and even the great Buddy Rich.
It didn’t take long before "WYSIWYG" was a regular at the Suncoast Jazz Classic in Clearwater, Fl. The band finally hit the big time and Dick wanted to fine-tune his stable of talent and he chose Orlando’s cream of the crop. WYSIWYG’s repertoire is a mixture of classic Dixieland with a large smattering of big band classics. Taking it one step further, Dick, added some cajun and creole style songs to his music library, however, the main staple of his music is still in the swing era and Dixieland.
With this newely formed synergy of talent it's no wonder "WYSIWYG" will become a staple at jazz festivals across the country and abroad. What ever your thirst for jazz, be sure that "WYSIWYG" will provide what your taste may require.
