The State Street Traditional Jazz Band pays homage to music birthed over 100 years past to its authentic origins at the turn of the 20th Century. These enchanting sounds were heard then in New Orleans and throughout the Louisiana Delta region.
However, following WW I, jazz moved north out of New Orleans, and in the course of the move it inevitably began to change.....
Yet, many musical greats kept it alive such as the Original Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Louis Armstrong, "Kid" Thomas Valentine, Sweet Emma Barrette, the Humphrey Brothers, etc.
Sadly, today those music legends have passed, but the State Street Traditional Jazz Band is dedicated to playing, preserving and keeping this music alive!
This is not "Dixieland" nor is it "Straw Hat" music - this is the REAL DEAL, folks. It doesn't get any better than this.....statestreettraditionaljazzband.com Click image to enlarge.
