Smitty's Big Four is the fiesty little brother of the Kansas Smitty's House Band. While the House Band draws its main inspiration from Count Basie's hard swinging late night jam sessions in 1930s Kansas City, the Big Four is interested in the music of Sidney Bechet and the upbeat swing of New Orleans. The Big Four's unique combination of trumpet, soprano sax/clarinet, guitar and bass, separates the group from traditional Dixieland groups with the omission of drums and piano. This streamlined formation allows the band to navigate New Orleans and swing standards with unparalleled energy and tightness while maintaining the melodic integrity of the canon. The band features Pete Horsfall, Giacomo Smith, Dave Archer, and Ferg Ireland.
