Cornet/ trumpet player Bags Howard leads an all star group of Washington DC area jazz musicians in one of the most exciting and versatile old time jazz bands in the country. Created for Mardi Gras, the Riverside Carnival Band specializes in good times. They play weddings, New Orleans stule funerals, fund raisers, corporate events, and parties of all types. They have been a seven piece ensamble with male and female vocalists, a trumpet and guitar duet and everything in between. They are always on time, always look good and always sound great with the happiest sound around. PA is provided as needed.
They were a lot of fun. Played standard Dixieland repertoire with a good mix of the raucous and the more subdued pieces. All acoustic so a reasonable volume. Danced through the crowd on a few numbers. Accommodated requests. Provided a great atmosphere without monopolizing the party. Mingled with the attendees during breaks. Arrived on time. Took reasonable breaks.
I can't think of anything more they could have done to fulfill their role in the party.
We hired Riverside Carnival Band for my dad's 75th birthday party and they were wonderful! Not only was the music fantastic, but the band had lots of fun together and with the guests. Our guests kept commenting all night on how much they loved the band and my dad was thrilled. We will definitely have them back at future events.
Response from Riverside Carnival Band:
It was a great party and Katie was a wonderful boss. The Riverside Carnival Band was created for Mardi Gras and we specialize in good times.
