How were  they formed? Because of the work of an activist clarinet player who
just  went out and did it. :-) VBG

Ah, yes, but then they added Bria Skonberg, leader/trumpet of Mighty

>Their big break came after trumpeter Bria Skonberg joined the band,  straight
off a trip to the Mammoth Lakes Jazz Camp. From there, the band was  asked to
audition for the Sacramento Jazz Jubilee and became the first  Canadian youth
band to perform at the festival. That's also when they adopted  their name,
the 51st Eight.
