From the moment they played their first note five years ago, Kansas Smitty’s have set out to reinvent how audiences experience jazz. The band is a tight-knit outfit that makes jazz inclusive with an emphasis on camaraderie, spontaneity, and joy. 2018 was a landmark year with members of the band appearing at the Royal Albert Hall, Barbican, Friday Night is Music Night, Boiler room and The Rose Hall at Jazz at Lincoln Centre at the request of Wynton Marsalis.
