The Bennington Traditional Jazz Band plays traditional jazz, French-inspired hot jazz, and a wide variety of pre-1950 American standards in a high energy, exciting style. With one boot in the deep south and the other in Tin Pan Alley, the BTJB presents a dynamic mix of rhythmic complexity and nostalgic, old time melodies that form the backbone of American popular music.

The BTJB features well-known local talent:

Jeff McRae–drums
Woody Strobeck–trombone
Andy Kelly–banjo
Dave Lambert–clarinet
Ernie Belanger–tuba
