The DeChamplains use the bandstand to share an amazing American tradition. It was their love for jazz that originally brought Matt and Atla together and now their passion is to share this classic music with contemporary audiences. Their unique combination of accessibility and musicality allow them to present a variety of music including the American Songbook, Bebop, contemporary jazz pieces and original compositions. Their influences include a great range of jazz masters, from Ella Fitzgerald and Art Tatum to Bobby McFerrin and Brad Mehldau. Collectively they have shared the bandstand with jazz greats like Dave Brubeck, Jon Hendricks, Steve Davis, Nat Reeves, and Jose Feliciano to name a few. They naturally create a comfortable atmosphere that reaches today’s diverse audience with a musical experience that is truly memorable.
