Formed in 2005, The JazzHappensBand is a traditional Dixieland jazz band with a repetoire of Dixie, blues, and quick stepping jazz. This talented group of local musicians has Jeff Dovi on trumpet, Mike Poole on trombone, Nick Pauldine on clarinet, Jim Overhiser on tuba, Robbert van Renesse on banjo, Steve Wilson on piano, and David Alexander on drums. The JazzHappensBand has entertained at numerous venues in the Central New York area, and are available to play any event. As leader Jeff Dovi explains: "I like to keep the music as true to a Dixie beat as possible, but we do throw in some rhythm and blues and some specialty numbers for the entertainment value they offer. I really think that Dixieland music is the happiest, toe-tapping and good-times music going; tunes that you can go home whistling!"
