About
With their sparkling vocal harmonies, solid jazz chops, quick-witted banter and cool vintage suits, the Jaztronauts have stage presence in spades. A staple of the Twin Cities swing scene for the past decade, the band possesses the unusual ability to be both versatile and distinctive, and have a repertoire deep enough to be tailored to almost any venue and event.

The Jaztronauts are the only 'real' vintage group in the midwest. This group has been vintage for 20+ years and have been focusing on their show since before vintage was even sought after. The band was formed in 1996 by the two Weismann brothers that were inspired by their father an established Jazz drummer. The whole family already sang, so when they picked up their instruments, it was magic. Other new groups wear costumes and play standards, but the Jaztronauts have been studying and pouring over the music and arrangements off old 78's for years.
They also wear real vintage suits and even replicate old performances when they can.

An authentic touch of class that is rare these days.

If you are planning for a classic or vintage wedding — featuring the music of Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and other classic artists — there is no better choice in the midwest than the Jaztronauts.

A one-of-a-kind “Rat Pack meets the Mills Brothers” quartet, the Jaztronauts are still swinging strong, almost two decades after their breakout gig as the popular Monday night house swing band at Lee's Liquor Lounge.

The space age quartet's unique “harmony swing” sound and vintage style has earned them an impressive résumé, including being named Minnesota Music Awards Acoustic Jazz Artist of the Year and a 'Best Of' listing in MN Bride. The band served as house band for channel 45's Big Bad Movie and spent 3 seasons as official on-field entertainment for the Saint Paul Saints. The boys even did a tour of duty in Europe, playing grueling 5 1/2 hour shows, six nights a week, at the Casa Bar in Zürich's old town. They were once flown to Florida for a live appearance at Kennedy Space Center, and recently played for a private AirSpace MN event for Buzz Aldrin.

The Jaztronauts' debut CD, “Swank,” received critical acclaim, and several cuts from the album made the top 10 of the “swingtop40.com” charts.

Named at the Minnesota Music Awards as the 2001/2002, Acoustic Jazz Artist of the Year, the Jaztros have appeared as the house band at several clubs, a television show and for a minor league baseball club. The boys even did a tour of duty in Europe, playing grueling 5 1/2 hour gigs, six nights a week at a jazz club in Switzerland. The Jaztronauts' debut CD, "Swank," received critical acclaim, and several cuts from the album made the top 10 of the “swingtop40.com” charts.

They have been awarded a 'best of' listing with Minnesota Bride, best 'new thing' by Minnesota Monthly and are former winners of the Minnesota Music awards for best acoustic instrumental group.

The joy that each of the players takes in his work is evident, and the fun the band is having never fails to inspire the crowd. Though the Jaztronauts'
musical style is hard to categorize, it is without question very easy to enjoy.
