About the Stompers: Specializing in honoring 1920s trad jazz composers and musicians with dance inspiring, New Orleans-style treatments, The Dandelions Stompers were founded in 2014 by band leader and bari sax aficionado Christopher Clark. Handing the lead mic to jazz singer Katie Roche, they tapped husband and wife Marc (guitar) and Brandi (stand-up bass) Janssen to hold down the rhythm section, adding one of the area’s premier jazz drummers Tim Crumley, driving on the skins. No NOLA style outfit would be complete without a heavy dose of brass and wood. Rounding out the horn section is soaring clarinet of Suzanne Smith, Devin van Holsteijn on his lilting alto sax, and Katie Greenstein blasting on trumpet.
