Dr. Jass and the Heartbeats filled every seat in the house at the Community Presbyterian Church this Sunday with a lively program of Dixieland jazz.

The leader is Payson cardiologist Dr. Claudio Zamorano on trumpet, piano and vocals. Others in the group are Mike Buskirk, trombone and vocals; Bob Tarallo on clarinet; Larry Brasen on bass and vocals; Dale Knighton on banjo, vocals and noisemakers; Gerry Reynolds on drums; and Suzanne Knighton on guitar, washboard and vocals.

The group attracted 150 listeners, the largest attendance in recent history.

The audience gave the musicians a standing ovation at the end of the two-hour performance.

Much to the crowd’s delight, the band marched throughout the room during its playing of “When the Saints Go Marching In.”
