Nutty is a hard-swingin’ octet that takes mash-ups to a whole new level via showcasing seamless jazz arrangements of classic pop/rock songs with a stage presentation reminiscent of a Rat Pack show in 1960s Vegas. With swank crooner Sonny Moon up front, the band cleverly weaves familiar straight-ahead jazz, big band swing, Latin, lounge and TV/film theme sounds into a mix that creates a pleasant spiked, shaken and stirred musical martini. Irreverent humor, sass and spontaneity are what make Nutty’s shows engaging and fun. The dark suits, skinny ties and pocket squares enhance the retro vibe but the music is what keeps everything real for jazz and rock ‘n’ roll lovers alike. It is an attitude and sound they have branded “jetsetter jazz,” and there’s nothing else like it out there. Featuring professional players from the L.A. jazz scene, the gentlemen of Nutty take you on a strange trip inside a musical time machine.
