FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA21) - Whether it was fate, or chance, that brought a young group of talented musicians together, who are now securing top opportunities to perform in Northeast Indiana.

The band is composed of Daniel Vaides (keyboard), Takoda Collins (tenor sax), Jonathan Jehle (bass), Ash Morris (tenor sax), David Vaides (electric guitar), and Zane Stackhouse (drums).
“We were all buskin’ in downtown, right? And all of a sudden the pieces started coming together,” Daniel Vaides said. Soon, they started playing their music around town.

The energetic group, is the youngest to have shows at The Clyde Theatre, and TRF. “None of us actually predicted or tried to turn this band into what it is today,” Collins shared. “We were all just doing it for fun.” This weekend, they plan to play their popular funk set. July 16, they’ll also be closing out the TRF with a performance at Jazzworks! There, they’ll share some of their own music. “I’m really excited to present those to the world,” Morris said.
