Why hire The Creole Jazz Band?
The Creole Jazz Band is a 5 piece ensemble that recreates the unique Dixieland music of New Orleans in the first quarter of the 20th century as well as tunes from the swing era such as Pennsylvania 6-5000 and other dance numbers.
In our Traditional Jazz band configuration we bring you that joyous Early Jazz music of New Orleans. We play the tunes of Louis Armstrong, King Oliver and other jazz greats.
Our dance band configuration plays the dance music of the 20's to the 40's such as Little Brown Jug, Davenport Blues, Undecided and others. We play waltzes, Latin, foxtrots, and quicksteps so we can meet all of your dancing requests.
The Creole Jazz Band plays traditional jazz, also know as Dixie or New Orleans Jazz, with a traditional instrument configuration. Our rhythm section is made up of a tuba and banjo with our front row being a trumpet, clarinet and trombone. As all of our instruments are acoustic, we can play at any location as we don't require a power source.
We also have a dance band configuration which consists of a rhythm section of drums, guitar and bass. The horn section consists of trumpet, trombone, and sax. This allows us to play dance music from the 1920's to present. We present tangos, foxtrots, cha-cha, waltzes, rhumba and polkas. We always play strict tempo for dances.
We can also provide background music for dinners and gatherings. For such occasions the band size is adjusted for the venue. We can work with as a few as two players.
Our goal is to add to your event so we work hard to meet and exceed all of your expectations. With enough notice we have been able to learn new tunes that people specifically want. We can work with choreographers in order to create arrangements at the tempo they want to dance at, as well as provide the necessary rehearsal tracks for the dancers.
If you are looking for something that we have not described above, please be sure to ask. We all play at least two instruments so we can alter our configuration to provide many different sounds.
Please be sure to contact me if you have any questions. I want your event to be successful. If we aren't right for you I will tell you and hopefully be able to make suggestions as to who may be able to provide you what you want.
