maxresdefault.jpg

For the past 3 years the Sonoma County-based group have brought their own special version of New Orleans music to the Bay Area. California trad jazz & more. No trumpet required.

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 playing 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. Bandleader nick Pulley joins host Devon Strolovitch live in the studio this Wednesday at 9 pm ahead of the band's performance at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco.
