D.D. Verni is best known as songwriter/founding member and bassist for heavy metal pioneers OVERKILL, a legendary band that has sold millions of records worldwide and has released 19 studio albums from the present dating back to their debut album in 1985. While Verni is a heavy metal legend in his own right, he had always dreamed of creating a big band as his love for the big band sound dates back many years. This was a passion project that he had always looked forward to creating one day. Verni began by writing a fantastic collection of soon-to-be big band classics. Next he recruited longtime Brian Setzer Orchestra upright bassist, John "Spazz" Hatton, to do horn arrangements and play upright bass. Then DD brought in the LA based horn section from Phat Cat Swinger to play the horns, and added Brian Setzer Orchestra drummer and current Doobie Brothers member, Tony Pia. Add jazz pianist Dave Moscoe and Hot Rod guitarist Damian Bacci, and you have a star-studded line-up of big band greatness that made this album shake and swing.
