DoSo® Music intends that every community should have its own local DoSo Dance Band. The Neighborhood DoSo Dance Band has a home base of Neighborhood Music School in New Haven, CT. When asked to play in a park in the neighboring town of Hamden, we drew upon our stable of musicians who actually live in Hamden.
The music is simple enough that we could do this performance without a rehearsal nor did we even have time for a sound check. We rely on improvisation to elevate the arrangements to a professional level.

Coop High School in New Haven, CT is first school to use the DoSo Double Bass, a short-scale, fretted instrument that is a conversion of a NS Cello — with Ned Steinberger’s permission. The jazz band, under the direction of Patrick Smith, is performing “Happy Go Lucky Local,” an Ellington-Strayhorn adaptation of the song “Night Train.”
