On Thursday, May 7, THE Jazz Club at the Cloverdale Arts Alliance is pleased to present the “Dixieland Jazz” of The Dixie Giants. Founded in the summer of 2012 by Dan Charles (Banjo), Casey Jones (Clarinet) and Nick Pulley (Sousaphone), The Dixie Giants are a group of young, energetic musicians who enjoy the sounds of Traditional Jazz. Their repertoire includes New Orleans classics written by the likes of Louis Armstrong and Kid Ory, reinterpretations of modern pop/rock songs in the Dixieland style, and original tunes written in the style of traditional New Orleans Jazz.
Winners of the North Bay Bohemian's "North Bay's Best Jazz Band" award, The Dixie Giants frequently perform in venues and on the streets of Sonoma County, parading, hollering, and playing their hearts out. In September of 2014, they released their 1st album, "Live at The Sumpin' Lodge".
