THE NEW CREOLE JAZZ BAND is a talented ensemble of professional musicians from Southwest Missouri that specializes in the upbeat, syncopated music of the early 1900’s. The group’s popularity comes from its energetic renditions of a wide variety of infectious, toe-tapping music including New Orleans-style jazz, “hot” dance music, ragtime — the music of the “Roaring 20s”. The New Creole Jazz Band has been sharing the spirit and joy of traditional New Orleans jazz with thousands of happy listeners in and around southwest Missouri since 1999.
