Vintage New Orleans jazz slated for July 13

Jul 04, 2019
State Street Traditional Jazz Band

Islesboro — The 2019 Up-Island Church Performing Arts Series presents the State Street Traditional Jazz Band, performing authentic New Orleans-style jazz, blues and spirituals Saturday, July 13, at 7 p.m. at Up-Island Church.

The evening begins with a potluck supper at 5:30 p.m. Admission is by Subscriber Pass or $20 at the door.

Since 1989, the State Street Traditional Jazz Band has performed vintage New Orleans jazz as it was born in New Orleans' French Quarter and throughout the Louisiana Delta from the turn of the last century, in the early- to mid-1900s.

The band performs familiar early jazz songs, blues numbers, and old New Orleans spirituals dating back over 100 years. Favorites from this era played by the band include "When the Saints Go Marching In," "Has anybody Seen My Gal," "Saint Louis Blues," and over 150 other songs in their musical repertoire from that period from classical music and jazz to the beautiful melodies of Brazilian choro.

Theband's performances have been hailed as “mesmerizing, “brilliant,” and “sublime.” For more information visit
