Drew Nugent & The Midnight Society

Led by the accomplished pianist, trumpeter and singer, Drew Nugent, the band has been together for almost five years now. It has made quite a name for itself on the East Coast as one of the leading ensembles in the jazz vein for traditional, or HOT, jazz. This is what one could call the original jazz music. It lasted in popularity from roughly 1897- 1935 and was sadly thrown by the wayside in the wake of the swing music surge. The height of this musical phenomenon took place in the 1920s. The Jazz Age. For decades this music lie dormant, but here, almost 100 years later, Drew Nugent and the Midnight Society play these tunes as if they were written yesterday. Some even were! That’s because Drew Nugent himself, is a song writer in this style of music, and from time to time you will catch him and the boys playing one of Nugent’s own works.

The Midnight Society ensemble ranges in sizes from a trio to a 10 piece orchestra, maybe more if the occasion calls for it.
