Sir Threadius Mongus is an amalgam of its predecessors and forebearers, specializing in original epic swing, shuffles, and ballads.
The ensemble and its directors use “hot” music in complex arrangements with varied colors, timbres, landscapes, and situations. They swear it started with Monk, then Mingus, and then Mongus!
Sir Threadius Mongus is composed of
Annie Ellicott (vocals), Jeff Davis (guitar), Jonathan Taylor (drums), Matt Hayes (bass), Cris Foster (pianos), and Nic Foster (vibraphone).
