“California Trad Jazz & more. No trumpet required.”
For the past 4 years the Sonoma County-based group, The Dixie Giants, have brought their own special version of New Orleans music to the Bay Area. Whether they’re playing in clubs or on the streets, The Dixie Giants are infamous for radiating an infectious energy and always having a blast. While continuing to play the music of their heroes (Louis Armstrong & The All Stars, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Thelonious Monk, Jackson 5), they have also been writing original music in an effort to continue to evolve the idiom of Traditional New Orleans Jazz.
Winners of the North Bay Bohemian’s “Best of” Best Band in Sonoma County award in 2017, The Dixie Giants released a new album of instrumental originals titled “Dressed & Ready to Go” in February, 2017.
