It's a fun night of authentic classic jazz, the music made famous by luminaries such as Louis Armstrong and Jelly Roll Morton. Headlining the eight-piece East Coast Chicagoans is internationally known stride pianist and jazz historian James Dapogny from Illinois.
Fabulous New York cornetist Randy Reinhart will join Dapogny on stage. Other band members are internationally known artists who all hail from the DC area: Anita Thomas and Scott Silbert - clarinet and saxophone, David Sager on trombone, Brooks tegler - drums, Tommy Cecil - bass, Craig Gildner - guitar.
Dapogny, who has recorded extensively and headed bands around the world, is known both for his skilled work at the keyboard and his extensive knowledge of early jazz and swing styles.
