About the band

Inspired by the “ghost” of Louis Armstrong and his passion for swing music as well as the blues, we joined forces to create a band called Satchmo’s Ghost. We love music that swings, songs that have a punch to them, and are easy to dance to, and we also feel quite at home doing a blues tune or two.

The band is (from left to right):

Rod Mills- vocals

Ron Ottobre- guitar and vocals

Michael McMullen- drums

Alan Mac- vocals and guitar

Kim Hart-Poindexter- keyboards

James Walker- bass
