Focal Point Friends of Traditional Jazz, Blues & Ragtime Present: Dizzy Atmosphere
Collectively influenced by an range of American (Joe Venuti & Eddie Lang, Stuff Smith), French (Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli), and Latin (Antonio Carlos Jobim, Xavier Cugat) recording artists, Dizzy Atmosphere performs a wide variety of repertoire. They are the embodiment of insouciance.
Jon Ferber has performed and recorded with Swing Set, the Orbits, the Lettuce Heads, the Erin Bode Trio, and the Western Satellites. His guitar style is deeply rooted in the swinging sounds of Charlie Christian and Django Reinhardt. Richard Tralles has performed and recorded with Miss Jubilee and the Yas Yas Boys, Diesel Island, Swing Set, the Vendors of Substance, and Box of Nerves. His swinging sensibilities and sweet vocal style jive with the band’s vibe. Earthy and swinging Christopher Voelker’s violin lends and air of casual elegance to this trio’s sound. He has also performed as a featured guest with Swing Set, Coco Rico, Fleur de Lou, and Hot Club of St. Louis.
