Sunday, July 6th, 4:30-6:30 pm
A Trad Jazz Celebration
The Buena Vista Jazz Band

Each year for five years running, we’ve welcomed the Buena Vista Jazz Band to the Bird & Beckett stage on the Independence Day weekend (and the last Sunday before Christmas too!) — and so it goes!

Darlene LangstonSinger Darlene Langston will front the seven-piece band, which features Noel Weidkamp (trumpet), Max Perkoff (trombone), Don Neely (clarinet and vocal), Duncan James (guitar), Si Perkoff (piano), Mike Kenny (bass) and Greg Gotelli (drums).

The Buena Vista Jazz Band digs deep into the trad jazz songbook, celebrating the music born in New Orleans at the turn of the 20th century.  This was the music brought to full bloom by the likes of Louis Armstrong, Kid Ory, Jimmie Noone, Danny Barker, Jelly Roll Morton, Pops Foster, Baby Dodds and a rich honor roll of great musicianers — the storied practitioners of “America’s Classical Music”!
