Reduced Orchestrations from 13 to 5 piece band:
Conductor/Keys, Reed (Piccolo, Flute, Clarinet, Alto & Tenor Sax), Trumpet, Trombone, & Percussion

"Musical direction by Joel Mercier, who also played synthesizer, was sophisticated, imaginative and infectious." 
Vermont Today

"The band itself is worth watching for the entire evening, and their accompaniment sizzles. Joel Mercier is listed in the program as the music director, but he's also the pianist, the whistler, the announcer, and the conductor. These musicians know their stuff, and the theater resounds with all that jazz."  The Randolph Herald
