THE LOW DOWN SIRES Appearing Sat May 10 2014 at 8:00pm

Journey with us to the streets of New Orleans and the barrelhouses of early 20th century Mississippi river towns and the sounds of Dixieland and early jazz.
Tickets: 12.00

The Low-Down Sires are dedicated to the lost sounds of early jazz, inspired by the compositions and arrangements of Joe "King" Oliver, Edward "Kid" Ory, Jelly Roll Morton, and other giants from the storied origins of the art form. Their raucous style predates the smoother sounds of big band swing and the intellectualism of modern jazz and transports you to the streets of New Orleans and the barrelhouses of early 20th century Mississippi river towns. Their performance style is at once hard hitting and intimate.

In addition to their regular circuit of local swing dances, club appearances, and private parties, they’ve had the pleasure of performing for Stompology Authentic Jazz Dance Weekend, Lindy Exchanges in Knoxville, TN, Charleston, SC, Atlanta, GA, and Cincinnati, OH, dance workshop events in Columbia, SC and Huntsville, AL, and will be featured in the upcoming jazz-inspired feature film SwingX.
