Kid Dutch and his New Orleans Music™Sunday, 1:30 PM – 3 PM | Kid Dutch and his New Orleans Music™ | Live Dixieland Jazz

Formed in 1984, This 4-7-piece band plays jazz and blues in the New Orleans dance-hall idiom, a style which can be traced from the beginnings of jazz over a hundred years ago to the traditional bands in New Orleans today. As jazz pioneer Jelly Roll Morton used to say, tunes are played “sweet and pretty, with plenty rhythm.” Relaxed tempos are used, but the music is driving, hot, exciting, danceable, and above all, FUN! The repertoire of Kid Dutch and his New Orleans Music covers everything from jazz standards to pop tunes, the blues, marches, rags, spirituals, waltzes, rhumbas, Cajun, and Creole tunes—all covering a time span from the Civil War era to today! The emphasis is on style and the New Orleans groove, not on repertoire, as is the case with so many “Dixieland” bands. he band’s music is decidedly different. This is original jazz as it was originally intended—for listening and dancing! Led by multi-instrumentalist/vocalist “Kid Dutch”, the band is composed of seasoned musicians, with over 200 collective years of jazz playing experience. The instrumentation can include trumpet, trombone, clarinet/sax, banjo/guitar, bass, and drums.
