The New Black Eagle Jazz Band
August 10 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The Black Eagles, as they are often known to their fans, have been a fixture on the international jazz scene since 1971, bringing the sounds of traditional New Orleans Jazz to audiences all over the world. Many observers regard them as the premier band playing in the traditional jazz style; as such, the band members regard themselves as the “Keepers of the Flame”!
The Black Eagles refuse to slavishly copy earlier jazz performances note for note. At all times, they are aware of the legacy and influence from such legendary New Orleans musicians as Louis Armstrong, George Lewis, Kid Ory, Sidney Bechet, Jelly Roll Morton, Paul Barbarin and, of course, The Preservation Hall Jazz Band, just to name a few of those who represent the best in the history of New Orleans Jazz. They also have a good selection of Duke Ellington and Ragtime to spice the pot.
