Steve Clarke and the Working Stiffs play a clever blend of dance music from the 30’s to the 50’s. Led by Mr. Clarke’s soaring saxophone, The Working Stiffs have become a hit with the dance crowd of the Twin Cities, thanks to their smart song selection, and contagious musical enthusiasm. Each player in this top-notch ensemble was handpicked by Mr. Clarke to create a combo with explosive playing power.
