Dawn and the Usonia Jazz were fantastic. Thoroughly professional and extremely talented. They added a great deal to our wedding. Of anything we did, we received the most compliments on the music. Everyone had a wonderful time dancing to their beautiful music. I can't recommend this band highly enough!!

Danceable music is our specialty; our musicians have played in some legendary swing clubs, including the Club Deluxe and the Great American Music Hall.
