The band has been performing in the central Connecticut area now for over eight years, building both its reputation and a growing group of jazz-loving followers. Heartbeatís music often includes a variety of musical styles as a way to show the progression of music through history.

"Of the music we play...itís like a direct heartbeat to your soul," Bill says. Donít miss Heartbeat every 2nd Thursday of the month starting at 6:00 to 8:00 pm!
