Music-in all its variety- has been a constant companion of the Afro-Swiss Nicole Herzog since her earliest childhood. She began classical ballet lessons at the age of four, and until she was sixteen dreamed of becoming a dancer. Both singing and learning the piano remained just additional hobbies at first. Later, when she took part in a school musical, however, her passion for singing was set loose. From then on, she performed with regional bands in the realm of pop, soul, R & B, and funk. Don Menza is a powerful tenor saxophonist with a dynamic, distinctive sound and soloing style. His compositions such as "Groovin' Hard" and "Time Check" have become standards in jazz study programmes at colleges and universities worldwide. In 2005 he was inducted into the Buffalo Music Hall of Fame.
