Award-winning accordionist and educator Dallas Vietty is one  of the most in-demand accordionists performing jazz and swing in the  United States today. Dallas’ unique style comes from his background in  the American jazz tradition, as well as study and immersion in the  European swing tradition of Django Reinhardt (Gypsy Jazz) and French  accordionists.

Dallas  remains very active on the East Coast concert and festival scene. His  groups have performed at some of the top U.S. festivals including: TEDx  Philly, Djangoary Festival. As a sideman his performances have taken him  to legendary venues like: The Iridium NYC, BB King’s Time Square,  Dizzy's Club at Lincoln Center, and the Philadelphia Kimmel Center.


Bryce Milano is a mandolinist and songwriter from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He picked up the mandolin at the age of 9 after progressive bluegrass bands like Alison Krauss & Union Station, Newgrass Revival and Nickel Creek piqued his interest in the instrument. His appetite for learning led him to explore bluegrass, jazz, classical, and traditional folk music from around the world and he was soon recognized as a rising talent of the mandolin. After attending the Berklee College of Music in Boston he moved back to his hometown of Philadelphia and began his foray into the realm of singing and songwriting. While he focuses on honing and recording his songwriting material Bryce maintains a busy schedule as a instrumental performer and a private instructor.
