Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, Fletcher Henderson, Cole Porter, George Gershwin etc.
The band had its world premier at the Central Coast Jazz League, Gosford NSW. The 10 piece band consisted of:

Ian Baker - Trombone
Mark Pinner - Lead Alto and Clarinet
Simon Bayly - 2nd Alto and Clarinet
Mal Quine - Tenor and Clarinet

Cliff Parsons - Banjo

Most importantly the band featured Ross McKinlay who is one of Australia's most respected Trumpet performers and teachers.
Greg announced that this concert was one of the most special of his life as he finally managed to get Ross to perform as a member of one of his bands. Ross taught Greg from the age of 8 and still remains his musical 'mentor and father'. The Band performed to a full house and received a huge response from the audience."
