Q. Why are they called "Acoustic Jass"
A. Their instruments are Acoustic & they play jass, which was what Jazz was called before the move from New Orleans to Chicago as in "The Original Dixieland Jass Band". Some say that the name was changed because the J's were scratched out on their publicity material, but others say that jass was a rude word.
