Naomi Uyama was an international swing dance champion searching for the perfect band - original but authentic - in the pocket but bringing the party. After searching the world over she took it upon herself to form "Naomi & Her Handsome Devils" from her favorite musicians in New Orleans, NYC, Seattle, and Chicago. Put them all together and you have a modern band with a vintage sound that is swinging dance floors around the world.

QUOTES & REVIEWS
"The Devils' Music" arrived one week ago and I can't get enough of it..."
- Ricky Riccardi - Author of 'What a Wonderful World: The Magic of Louis Armstrong's Later Years'
"Naomi’s voice is a pleasure in itself. She doesn’t sound like someone who has spent her life memorizing Ella, Billie, or a dozen others; she sounds, rather, like someone who has fallen in love with the repertoire and decided to sing it, as if she were a bird bursting into song." - Michael Steinman 'Jazz Lives'
"Wow, Naomi knows how to do it! Kudos to Naomi to for putting together such a stellar group of musicians."
- Jesse Miner 'Hey Mister Jesse'
