Chubby Chucklers debut at Burlington jazz festival

BURLINGTON, Vt. -

They call themselves the youngest jazz band in the world.

On Wednesday the Chubby Chucklers made their debut at Burlington's Discover Jazz Festival on Church Street. The band is made up of 11 and 12-year-olds from Mary Hogan Elementary School in Middlebury. The band is not part of a music class. The seven kids created the jazz ensemble and practice in their free time.

"It just has a nice feel for it. It's catchy, sounds good," said Julian Roy, sixth-grader.

Reporter Gina Bullard: How does it feel to play at jazz fest in front of all these people?

Roy: Umm, I don't really know, interesting I guess.

"I think it's a memory they're going to keep for years," said Chuck Miller, music director.

The Chubby Chucklers have only been playing together for 6 months.
