Juke Joint Jazz is a concert jazz quintet playing shows, clubs, weddings and events throughout New England.
The band plays their own arrangements of an eclectic melange of the CLASSIC AMERICAN JAZZ REPERTORE as well as the music of international composers.
With several talented and tasteful soloists with a wealth of professional experience, the music shows influences from Miles Davis to the Grateful Dead; from Monk to Funk; with classical influences from Beethoven to Chopin.
And coming in the fall, it's the fabulous Wanda Houston Band, back with us for our 4th show together. Wanda is pure Dynamite!!
JUKE JOINT JAZZ
WANDA WORLD RETURNS to Northampton's famed Iron Horse Music Hall on Sunday, Sept 15 with the fabulous Wanda Houston and her dynamite quartet. If you haven't seen Wanda before--unlikely as it is--she is truly up there with the best women vocalists of all time, singing all the Jazz Classics, from Ella to Sarah and R&B to Swing--and it's always a true blast to be in her warm glow! Her band--featuring Rob Kelly on the Horse's fine grand piano, Jay Bradley on Drums, and Jeff Stevens on Trumpet swings tastefully and rocks the house.
.Juke Joint Jazz will have the usual suspects-- pianist Ken Forfia, Adam Scotera on sax and trumpet, Mark Dunlap on bass, Clark Seibold on drums, Michael Levine on guitar. Gonna be a hot time in the old town!
At Tuckerman Hall on August 19, 2017 for a very special wedding at the concert hall in Worcester, MA
