The big band that backup drummer Dave Schmitt enlisted to set his buddy Dexter Romweber against a broader and brighter sound isn't a regular performance vehicle; its dozen-strong roster makes sure of that. But when the logistics align, The New Romans might well provide the best possible conduit for Romweber's songs, which build from the rockabilly and surf of Romweber's Flat Duo Jets days to dig into lounge, swing and barroom balladry with aplomb. This, Romweber says, is music for dancing—"lascivious stripper music," when it's done right. Setting it outside in the gardens near sunset promises a unique thrill. —Bryan C. Reed
