The Protagonists have been making music together since 1990. They’ve been hailed by music critics, audiences, children, and drunks alike as a band without equal in San Antonio. Their specialty is classic jazz in the tradition of Dave Brubeck, Duke Ellington, Oscar Peterson.
Audiences of all ages have been delighted with the Protagonists. Their style is a cool blend of the old and the new, with classic jazz standards like “Mood Indigo” and “Blues By Five,” mixed in with out-of-the-way numbers like “Dido’s Lament (from the opera Dido and Aeneas)” and “Amazing Grace,” further mixed with unlikely recent tunes from Disney and Pixar and the top 40, as well as a steady stream of originals, all performed with playfulness, confidence, and high style.
