Jordon Ellis

Jordon was born and raised in Frankfort, KY...his homeland. He has also lived in Nashville, TN and Austin, TX. Ellis studied music and audio production earlier on with some really helpful and loving people, and has taken that knowledge into a busy career of touring and studio endeavors. These endeavors range from nearly 2,000 shows as a live drummer to session drumming, band tracking, live mixing, music mixing, film mixing, production, sound design, and audio restoration.

Lonnie Holley

Lonnie Holley was born on February 10, 1950 in Birmingham, Alabama. From the age of five, Holley worked various jobs: picking up trash at a drive-in movie theatre, washing dishes, and cooking. He lived in a whiskey house, on the state fairgrounds, and in several foster homes. His early life was chaotic and Holley was never afforded the pleasure of a real childhood.

Bert Lams and Fabio Mittino

A letter from Bert Lams and Fabio Mittino:

Our friendship goes back to 1998: Robert Fripp introduced us during a music convention in London. A few years later we found ourselves traveling back and forth between Milan and the US for rehearsals and concerts, and excited to work on our new music project: transcriptions and arrangements of music by Gurdjieff/De Hartman, arranged for two guitars.

Billy Goat Strut Revue

It’s been an unpredictable journey since our founding Billy Goat (Mark Hamilton) took a trip to New Orleans and quickly became intoxicated with the city's rich musical culture and tradition. He brought us together on a cold and rainy Kentucky autumn day in 2011 and shared his vision of forming an ensemble of all-star players for an old-time project.

Through our progression as a band, the moniker “Antique Jazz” started to float around. With the addition of tunes that contained hints of Kentucky flavor and an irresistible twang, we realized our strange version of jazz embodied the influences of a Kentuckian mode de vie.
