The band was formed while working on the creation of a soundtrack for the movie "Dream Team 1934", the band performs in the style of Dixieland, which is a distinctive sound of the 30th. Some major Latvian musicians were invited to take part in the project. Suddenly, from the very first notes during the record session the band was born and it's unique sound is represented in a movie.

The band unites well known musicians with experience of working with a vast amount of other ensembles and projects.
