Jass Two Plus One brings to life the romance and adventure of the Jazz Age. Along with their music they intersperse humor, stories behind the classic jazz standards, the famous stars who sang them, and the songwriters who composed these immortal songs.
Jass Two started in 1994 when famous Portland bandleader Teddy Deane of the Swingline Cubs and The Holy Modal Rounders called Steve Boden to work the Columbia River sternwheelers. They were featured talent aboard the "Queen of the West" and the "Columbia Gorge." They also played corporate, convention and casual engagements. The group continues today under the leadership of Steve Boden to play hot and swing jazz with master reedman Dick Saunders and bassist John Walling (John is the "plus one").
