Join our next “DIXIELAND JAZZ” SUNDAY Event on:

October 5, 2014

Featuring: “Black Tuesday Jazz Band”

The Black Tuesday Jazz Band has entertained audiences throughout California and Nevada since the early 1990’s. Black Tuesday is a high energy Jazz Band holding to its original promise, “fun music is our thing”. This formula has kept the Black Tuesday Jazz Band busy all around California and Nevada carrying the jazz banner to concert audiences and in casual settings and club engagements.

Black Tuesday has a smooth and unique style of jazz and swing through the versatility of its musicians, some of whom play multiple instruments. This talented group of eight musicians has worked on improving their style and sound by varying the instrumental mix depending on the audience and the era of music played.

Black Tuesday performs renditions of your favorite good-time tunes, as well as some of the great music from Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Fats Waller, Sidney Bechet, Jelly Roll Morton, Clyde McCoy, Hoagy Carmichael, in addition to original jazz tunes. Black Tuesday has one of the top Divas of the Sacramento area, Suzanne Wiggins, who captures audiences singing favorites from Ethel Waters, Billie Holiday and Muriel Lane. This entertaining band provides a variety of high energy jazz whenever good-time music is a must.
