He and his Royal Society Jazz Orchestra, have performed at every major event in San Francisco, jazz festivals and clubs around the country as well as internationally, concertized on tour, and have been featured on radio and television. They have also recorded over 300 songs. Don now shares his love of the small group jazz bands of the 1930ʼs and 40ʼs with his Swingtet.
