This local group of talented musicians will play a fun mix of Latin, Swing and R&B, featuring songs by Harold Arlen, Cole Porter and Kurt Weill. Jazz and pop standards from the 1950's and 1960's will also be in the mix, as well as some of Hutchins' own original songs.

The band is comprised of Ann Hutchins, lead vocals; Kenny Cifone, congas and trumpet; Glendon Ingalls, bass and trumpet; Rob Zollman, percussion; Steven MacLauchlan, saxophone and flute; and Chuck Miller, piano.

A native Vermonter and lifelong musician, Ann Hutchins is a classically trained soprano who happily fell off the page to sing jazz and other contemporary styles of music. She has studied at the Tanglewood Institute and Crane School of Music. Hutchins has been singing and teaching throughout the state of Vermont for 20 years. She is also a certified body-centered therapist, practicing resonant kinesiology. Hutchins has used these disciplines to develop teaching methods that are streamlined and fun.
