DIXIELAND EXPRESS SIDNEY BECHET SPECIAL:
Sun. February 23rd 1:30PM - 3:30PM doors at 12:30pm (All Ages)
The Music of Sidney Bechet, master of New Orleans Jazz, played by The Dixieland Express Jazz Band with Lloyd Arntzen on clarinet and soprano saxophone.
Come hear the jazz band that started Hermann's Jazz Club rocking on Sunday afternoons all these years ago.
It will be with much nostalgia that Norrie MacFarlane and his crew perform again in the Sunday afternoon time slot.
Energizing the band with Norrie on trumpet will be Tom Vickery (piano), Avram McCagherty (banjo), Don Cox (tuba & bass), Lloyd Arntzen (clarinet & sax), and Anita Bonkowski (drums). A great band in a great venue with great food, dancing, fun and camaraderie.
Don’t miss this one!
