Dixieland Jazz, America's original art form, found its roots in the street music of New Orleans. As it moved up the Mississippi River it experienced new life and interpretive diversity. Today, Dixieland that reflects this coming of age can be found in the "New Sound" of the New South Jazzmen who echo the rebirth of lively rhythms and toe tapping favorites that have become standards from Chicago to New York and back to its roots in the South.

New South Jazzmen includes six musicians who have brought their diverse musical backgrounds together to recreate the sounds of the 1920's and 30's. The upright bass of David Michael Ruddy along with the banjo of Denny Hallock and drums of Bill McSweeney, Sr. drive the band's renditions of tunes that were all the rage of a bygone era. The traditional front line of trumpet, trombone, and clarinet makes the combination of upper and lower Mississippi sounds complete. Stephan Berry's mastery of the trumpet is clear when he strokes the stars with his singing high notes while the laid back style of Neale Baugh's clarinet compliments the tailgate hum of Bill McSweeney, Jr's slide trombone.

All in all, the "front line" of New South Jazzmen blends harmony and blue notes to create a Dixieland feeling that fits perfectly with special events. Combining a light easy touch for quiet gatherings and heart felt movement for those more lively affairs makes The New South Jazzmen ideal for a memorably musical experience.
