Biography
Tired of the same old band? …It's time to demand more from your music!

Founded at Lehigh University in 1998 but now headquartered in Media PA, the 9's draw upon swing, jazz, blues, jump and ska influences to unleash a fiery energy of music that never fails to exhilarate music fans of all types throughout the region.

The 9’s accomplishments speak for themselves, but nothing can be as convincing as experiencing a live show in the flesh- hearing a wall of sound explode from the 5-piece horn section… feeling the pounce of the upright bass on your chest… seeing a collection of handsome fellas slicked up to the 9’s …and being surrounded by enthusiastic audience members clapping and dancing with excitement.
