Hip to That
Hip to That is a Cleveland Jazz Quartet, who has been performing all over the Cleveland area for almost three years. Maria DiDonato, Joe Rangel, Lee Kolarik and Dave “Ziggy” Deitke met as music students at Cleveland State University and formed a bond that survived graduation. They specialize in jazz standards, Great American Songbook charts and pop tunes that have a distinctive jazz twist added by the band. For example, their favorite number to play together is a mash up of two standards, Ray Charles’ “Hit the Road Jack” and Peggy Lee’s “Fever”. This is a diverse, young jazz combo determined to knock your socks off.
