themselves, the Blue Ox Jazz Babies have become known around Southern
Minnesota as true enthusiasts of historical (and sometimes hysterical) music

New Orleans all the way up the Mississippi to the Midwest in a way
that keeps audiences smiling with a toe-tapping good time.

Hank Williams, The Judds, McCarter Sisters and John Denver.
