Giacomo Smith returns to Saratoga following last year’s swing night at UPH. A Saratoga native, Giacomo now resides in London, England and runs Kansas Smitty’s, a one of a kind band and bar combo. Tonight, Giacomo will be joined by great local talents, Peter Davis and Bobby Kendall, and New York City based jazzmen Eddie Barbash and Will Clark. Sounds will range from traditional Dixieland, to Kansas City swing, to Parisian Gyspy Jazz.

Some reviews of Giacomo's current project...

"KS have the energy of Kerouac, the spirit of Mephistopheles and more raw talent than the Renaissance. Ninth wonder of the world. Long days of rest are needed after a KS party. You have been warned." - Tim Wilson : Director Vault Festival

"As a producer, who has worked in both radio and television, I have rarely enjoyed working with a band more than Kansas Smitty's Big Four. All of the members play sensationally well  - and are darned nice with it! They stole our Independence Day edition of Friday Night Is Music Night and all of us  orchestra and production alike  were delighted for them. If you get a chance to book them  do. You won't regret it."
- Anthony Cherry : Producer, BBC Radio 2
