"Multi-instrumentalist Chris Wagoner and his wife Mary Gaines are masters of string swing music. They call it "café jazz," but that seems too calm. Their music is equal parts Hawaiian luau and Parisian wedding party. The love they bring to their music is as apparent as the precision with which they make it. The Stellanovas also feature veteran drummer Jim Huwe."
Andy Moore, producer of Wisconsin Public Television's "30-Minute Music Hour" on The Stellanovas' performance recorded January 6, 2009
