Drew Nugent is a jazz musician, hailing from the city of Philadelphia, and bandleader of the group
"Drew Nugent & the Midnight Society". Nugent, as well as his ensemble, specializes in playing
traditional or "Hot" Jazz, from the 1900s to the 1940s, with the main area of focus being the Jazz Age -
the Roaring 20s. His main instruments of choice are the piano, trumpet and vocals. He is also known
for his playing of an odd contraption called the"Hot Tea-Kettle", or the "Teapot Trumpet" as some fans
have named it. Drew made his debut in 2005, at age 19, on the classic NPR radio show "A Prairie Home
Companion", where he placed 3rd on the "Talent from 12-20 Contest"
