Jazz... - Roanoke, VA

"rdj" jazz band agreed to play for my latest event. I recently picked up a few events for a client as I used to be an event planner and they were in a bind. I planned a gala at a local country club and I hired the five piece band that call themselves, rdj (lower case). The band consists of Don Wimmer on saxaphones and flute, Robb Schipp on trombone, Joe Blaha on piano, Ron Robinson on bass and electric bass, and Henry Frye on drums.

Their music was my favorite thing of the whole event. Each one of them is a seasoned musician, even Henry Frye on drums who is a freshman at Virginia Tech.

I knew Dr. Blaha from his wife who is an author client of mine. Dr. Blaha retired from Roanoke College in 2018 where he was the bands Director and taught music. He is also and award winning composer.
