Where it all started!




Jody and the Trouble Brothers are a three-piece sequence-driven variety dance band based in Orlando... and the former house band of the legendary Langford Hotel in Winter Park, Florida.

They performed in the lounge at the Langford every week from the fall of 1995 until the hotel closed in the Summer of 2000.  Since then they've been playing at various venues all over Central Florida, and are always available for private functions & nightclub gigs.

The band actually began in 1994 as Trace and the Trouble Brothers, featuring lead vocalist Traci Maclaine; sax man, keyboardist & vocalist Gil Dhennin;
and guitarist/vocalist Gary Usinger.

Trace decided to leave the band and focus more on family life in 1997, and was replaced by singer Ellie Sedell. Ellie's stay with the band was brief, and she moved on about a year later.
At that point, Jody took her place, and has been with the band ever since!

Gary, Gil & Jody all have individual side projects that occasionally conflict with JTTB's schedule, so Trace sometimes comes back & fills in for Jody
Gary, Gil & Jody have also worked as duos in every conceivable pairing when necessary.
It sometimes gets a little hard to keep track of, but the band never disappoints!
A Jody and the Trouble Brothers gig is always fun, and always an adventure!
