We are in our 60th Year!
In February we will be celebrating our 60th anniversary. In the past ten years, we have added only two new players, but our band has evolved musically in two important ways. First, we are playing to young adults who pack the dance floors jitterbugging and swing dancing to the music of Louis Jordan, Nellie Lutcher and other pop stars of the 40s and 50s. Second, the QCJB has embraced old and new second-line styles from the streets of New Orleans. The music of New Orleans artists like Trombone Shorty and Dr. John and bands like the Rebirth Brass Band and the Treme Brass Band have inspired us to discover new rhythms and melodies that are thrilling our concert and party audiences of all ages. We know that our future and the future of our music depends on attracting new audiences and younger audiences. The jazz roots styles of Louis Armstrong and Bessie Smith will never be out of date and we are well known for playing early jazz with energy and respect.
