From the moment they played their first note five years ago, the Kansas Smitty's House Band has set out to reinvent how audiences experience jazz. The House Band is a tight-knit outfit that make jazz inclusive with an emphasis on camaraderie, spontaneity, and joy.

They dance to a beat of their own drum. Totally unpredictable!
