We’re fun. We’re fresh. We’re needed in Cambridge.

Radio Americana! is my fresh new project that serves contemporary music with a heaping helping of American folk influences and non-stop swing. Beginning as a spin-off from my OJB (Olsen Jazz Band) project, Radio Americana! has emerged as a professional 7-piece ensemble. I personally wrote all of the arrangements so what you hear is not only supremely satisfying swing music, we are the only ones doing it like we do.
