Originally The 51st Eight from Chilliwack, BC, this group celebrated its 10th birthday in 2008 and decided to reinvent itself as The Big Bang Jazz Band, intent on “playing jazz from the time it was created” and better defining their explosive approach to playing traditional jazz. These twentysomethings follow humbly in the footsteps of jazz giants like Louis Armstrong, Jelly Roll Morton as well as revivalists Lu Watters and Turk Murphy as they continue to host a revival of their own and encourage other young musicians to play red hot jazz. Part New Orleans, part West Coast, part Canadiana; you can expect strong ensemble playing and vocals by the whole front line, a dynamic driving rhythm section and consistently entertaining energy. Enjoy!
Big Bang Jazz Band has been a favorite with Sun Valley Jazz Festival audiences in recent years and will perform in Caldwell before traveling to the festival this year. Caldwell Fine Arts selected this band upon the recommendations of several patrons who have attended the Sun Valley Jazz.
