The band zig-zags across musical boundries other groups didnt even know were there.
Mississippi River Music Fest
Sandy Weltman is a master Modern Jazz player on two instruments that sometimes escape the deserved attention of Jazz affeciandos; Banjo and Harmonica. Taking his cues from Bela Fleck and The Flecktones, Weltman first became a master banjo player, then he study under Flecktones master harmonica master Howard Levy. The results are outstanding.
The banjo itself is not a novelty instrument in jazz. The instruments has been featured from the genres roots in Dixieland and with the works of Louis Armstrong and his Banjo virtuoso Johnny St. Cyr. Virtually dropped from Jazz for decades, it took masters like Bela Fleck to re-introduce the instrument. The harmonica has also taken some hard knocks from those people who claim to know Jazz. Weltman is equally adept at either instrument and uses each one nimbly. Those he is young and hopefully has a long and fruitful career ahead of him, Weltman plays with the confidence of one of the old masters.

Sort of like Dream Team II, this group can hit the long three, pound the boards and then when you least expect it, throw down a slam dunk of a solo thats guaranteed to rock the house.
Sandy Weltman is the most versatile harmonica player in St. Louis - bar none!
“He is a true musician. And to also think of the ideas that he hears in his mind and then to execute them with flawless ease is truly astounding. My hat’s off to him.,
