Austin Traditional Jazz Society presents Rock Step Relevators
The Rock Step Relevators are patterned after the small big bands of the 1920s and '30s. Rock Step began life in 2012 as the Thrift Set Orchestra, and quickly became a favorite of Austin jazz fans and swing dancers. The band’s founder, reed player Jonathan Doyle, left Austin for Washington State, and maintains the Thrift Set name for national appearances. The core of the band has remained in Austin and plays under the local name of Rock Step Relevators.
