Puttin on the Ritz
After Hours plays with a great sense of swing and a depth of feeling you don't often hear from a big band. Their music is filled with the energy, elegance and sophistication of great jazz, swing and latin music. With tight ensemble playing, strong solos by Renee Wood on alto, and great vocals by Denise Gibbons, this is one hard swingin' band! Remember - Big bands are the ones with the real heavy metal! "Last Saturday night Renee Wood and the After Hours Big Band swung into town and gave a wonderful performance to a packed house. Renee Wood has put together a marvelous group of musicians and molded them into a tight, cohesive unit that can deftly handle anything you throw at them. The concert ended with a standing ovation!" concert review.
