Brendan O' Ruaidh (IRL, jazz guitar) and Gary Baus (USA, alto saxophone) both share a particular penchant for 1930's and 40's jazz. It's the unique idiom of that jazz era that really inspires a musical conversation between themselves and with the audience. As Gary's lyrical sense of swing and syncopation interacts with Brendan's rhythmic feel for the pulse of french gypsy jazz a fine musical blend comes alive. Their instrumentals convey the real emotional meaning of uptempo "good time" swing to slow "heart break" ballads. The Darktown Strutters are a quartet that enjoy sharing with the audience the taste and sound of a jazz tradition that was truly by the people, for the people. They are joined by Dave Duffy (IRL, double bass) and Niall Dennehy (IRL, drums).
