     The New Orleans Nighthawks have been together about 8 years, and play regularly in the Lake Wales, Florida area (although many of them are “snowbirds” who only spend their winters in Florida).  Their style is a combination of Hot Trad and Swing. 


     The Nighthawks’ solid rhythm section is fronted by John Skillman, who leads on clarinet.  The addition of two trombone players makes their voicing and arrangements unique among traditional jazz bands.  Vocalist Diana Skillman brings additional energy and excitement to the group
