The Water City Jazz Orchestra was founded in 2015 by trumpeter Kurt Shipe and drummer Mike Malone. The two co-directors met in college at the University of Wisconsin – Eau Claire where they performed in the GRAMMY nominated Jazz Ensemble I together. After both relocating to Oshkosh, the two made plans to form a youthful addition to the big band music scene in the Fox Valley. Together they comprised an ensemble featuring some of the most talented musicians in the area including musicians from a wide background. The band currently performs the last Monday of the month at Manila Resto in Oshkosh, and frequently provides educational opportunities geared towards engaging young students in jazz music.
