"AOA knows no generation gap. The performers work to integrate all the instruments. The unity is a tribute to great creative teamwork."


- Robert Jackson, The Rocky Mountain News



In addition to an extensive repertoire of original jazz compositions, they know hundreds of classic hits, standards, R&B, acid jazz, funk and pop tunes. AOA also has a huge catalog of original music. AOA presents innovative arrangements of hits that deserve continued recognition.


The sound of AOA is as unlimited as the experience of its players. The members of this band have a collective total of over 100 years of experience as professional musicians.


A style of live performance that is connected, inviting and personable bucks the trend of musicians who fail to recognize the audience. This band knows and enjoys the job of entertainment.

In this age of "cool detachment" and "cutting-edge boredom," AOA admits that they are guilty of being popular and upbeat. If joy is a crime, AOA is on a spree!
