Dick Domek put together a group he called The Walnut Street Ragtime Ramblers for the 2006 festival, and the audience liked what it heard.The band’s members all are experienced musicians. They have opened for or backed performers such as Manhattan Transfer, Henry Mancini, Allen Vizzutti, Louis Bellson and Linda Ronstadt. Beyond their commercial music backgrounds, each of the members has a wealth of experience in ragtime and early 20th-century music, including serving as performers or arrangers for Kentucky Jazz Repertory Orchestra, The Advocate Brass Band, Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra, New Walnut Street All-Star Orchestra, North Carolina Jazz Repertory Orchestra, Lexington Brass Band and Rhythm and Brass.
