La Crosse, WI (WXOW) It began in 1975. The idea of a couple of UW-La Crosse musicians, Tom Wirkus and John Alexander.
They put together a jazz big band to provide entertainment while working to keep America’s art form alive and well.
The group has gone through some changes, but they’re still playing.
Today, they’re known as the La Crosse Jazz Orchestra featuring some of the best jazz musicians you’ll find. So it’s no surprise, they’re better than ever.
