Luigi Inc. is a 5 piece jazz combo located in Omaha, Nebraska. Founded by the late jazz legend, Luigi Waites, Luigi Inc. (short for including, not incorporated) has the distinct honor of maintaining one of the longest running gigs in the country, performing over 1900 consecutive Sundays at Mr. Toad in Omaha’s old Market!
Luigi Inc. distinguishes itself by combining a repertoire of Jazz Standards, Popular Music and Original Compositions. Although the group’s instrumentation and personnel has changed some over the years, Luigi Inc.’s current lineup consists of saxophonist Curt McKean, guitarist Jeff Scheffler, bassist Steve Gomez, drummer Steve Knight, and trumpeter Doyle Tipler. Luigi Inc. has four recordings to date; Luigi Inc., Fear Not, Distant Relatives, and Luigi Inc. – Live at Mr. Toad. Luigi Waites passed away in early April of 2010; however, the band continues to carry the torch in honor of his memory.
