July 20: Market Street Dixie Jazz Band
New Orleans style Jazz, Dixeland, 1920’s songbook and gutbucket second line blues are the specialty of Market Street Dixie Jazz Band. Oftentimes you’ll see the band spelled with “jass” instead of jazz. According to the band’s website: “Until the mid 1920's many jazz bands in New Orleans and across the country used "jass" to describe the music; we like to evoke the period and style our music was originally created in.”
