Sojoy is a sometimes septet, other times octet, that primarily plays the music of Jonny Peiffer. 'Sojoy' is a neologism that characterizes both the automatic response to all the good going on, and the act of defiance and perseverance in the face of the rest.

Zach Lange, Josh Gagnon - brass
Matt Langley, Eric Klaxton, Nick Mainella - reeds
Scott Kiefner - bass
