As the son of a music professor, drummer/percussionist Don Elkington learned early how to bring more to music than just a beat. His musicianship and versatility make him one of the busiest musicians in the area. He’s called upon to play in a wide variety of styles; from jazz and classical ensembles to folk, rock, funk, tango, world, pop and R&B. Whether he's playing Ellington, Bacharach, Earth Wind Fire, Tool, Mingus, Jobim, Miles, Steely Dan, Tower Of Power, ZZ Top, Gershwin... you always know his style, feel, and groove.

Music paid for Don’s schooling at Brigham Young University. Now living in Springfield, Oregon he normally averages between 50 and 75 live performances and recording sessions a year. You may have seen him play at The Shedd, The Hult Center, Cuthbert Theater, McDonald Theater, Mathew Knight Arena, wineries, festivals, or many other venues.

Bob Ragan started playing in big bands at the age of 15 and became a member of the Air Force Band of the West. He was a featured soloist in college in both classical and jazz organizations and became an award-winning band director in Texas and Arkansas. After retiring and moving to Eugene, Bob finally had time to devote to improvisation. He became a long-time member of Swing Shift and was a featured soloist. Bob leads the small group, Slightly Retro Jazz which performs at venues all over town. He has also performed with a number of local large and small jazz ensembles locally including performances at the Shedd, the Hult Center, the Jazz Station and the Newport Jazz Festival.

Anya Martin graduated from South Eugene HS in 2023 where she performed in The Dorians Jazz Choir. She also sang in the Synergy Acapella choir for four years. She currently attends college in Prague, Czechia where she sings with Voices of Prague, an international choir that performs at events all over the city. Anya sang with Slightly Retro Jazz at the Jazz Station and was a featured soloist at the Hult Center for two graduation ceremonies.
