Casey MacGill

Casey MacGill performs music that swings. Nat “King” Cole Trio meets the Mills Brothers. Fats Waller meets Fats Domino. Slim Galliard meets Fred Astaire. It is American music of many decades and no decade in particular, all happening at the same time, woven into a seamless, beautiful whole. He plays boogie-woogie, swing, and stride piano and blows a lyrical jazz cornet. But his most unique instrumental voice is a 6-string steel body resonator ukulele.
Casey is the heart and soul of the band and is a classic Hollywood character in appearance and style. MacGill has been singing and arranging vocal harmonies for over 40 years, in a career that stretches from feature films in Los Angeles (“Frances” and “Swing Shift”), to The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, to Broadway.
