About The Band

In 1997, a dedicated group of professional local musicians came together to help preserve the presentation of traditional American jazz,.... N' Orleans style. Historically, Charleston has always shared many characteristics with it's Louisiana counterpart, including jazz. The Holy City can also claim that special spirited sound that's both fun to play and always a treat to hear... real Dixieland jazz.

Dixieland Music - What to Expect

In the style of Louis Armstrong and King Oliver, Dixieland Jazz appeals to all age groups. Guests sing along with familiar tunes like Ain't She Sweet, Five Foot Two and Bill Bailey.

There's no better opportunity to dance The Charleston and then enjoy the band's great renditions of Armstrong's Hello Dolly and Wonderful World. Tiger Rag, Sweet Georgia Brown and Muskrat Ramble are always crowd pleasers too, plus our traditional red-hot closer, When the Saints Go Marchin' In.
