Lori Williams - Vocalist. "DC 's own Lori Williams seamlessly moves from Jazz to R&B in ways the listener can feel at home with her in either genre. She has set the bar for vocalists to come.” - Terri Lyne Carrington

Allyn Johnson - Keyboard - "Johnson now stands as one of the most influential figures in the ongoing revival of his hometown’s jazz scene." Website - https://allynjohnsondivineorder.com

Michael Bowie - Bass

A Maryland native, Bowie has roots in the D.C. jazz scene, yet has played around the world with legends like Isaac Hayes, Michel Camilo, Sarah Vaughan, Joe Henderson and Abbey Lincoln. His stylistic horizons are, appropriately, as broad as the diversity of his musical collaborators. His practiced facility on his instrument allows him to move deftly and naturally from style to style.
