The band was formed in 2016 to play at the AJC in Ballarat. The band members are Garry Richardson, clarinet, Charles Paine, double bass, Robert Wood, drums and Felix Blatt, leader on piano. Felix and Garry have played together since the  early 60’s and formed the band to play more relaxed swinging standards in the style of Dave McKenna, George Shearing etc. . These include such tunes as I Won’t Dance, I Would do Anything for You,  You took Advantage of Me etc.. Also included are more quirky tunes such as My Inspiration,  Hymn to Freedom, When the Saints, I’ve Been Down this Road Before (original). Garry also dares to sing a few vocals. All band members play in other more traditional jazz groups.

Feelin’ Good plays mostly at festivals including Port Fairy, Castlemaine, Murray Bridge, Hall’s Gap and the AJC but also the occasional winery.
