    Don’t miss “Gentlemen & Gangsters” from Gothenburg, Sweden. Not many bands out there that beats Gordon Websters band in a bandbattle, but G&G did just that.

  4. Bill Speidel says:

    North Carolina’s Mint Julep Jazz Band are seasoned veterans who swing the dickens out of events in the mid-Atlantic states… you can’t leave them off!
