New Black Eagle Jazz Band

Saturday, March 30, 2024 —  7:00 pm
New Orleans Jazz in The Concert Hall

“…As close to perfection as you’ll get… strong in soloists and with a sense of dynamics that casts them apart from most of their contemporaries.” — John Gibson, Edinburgh Evening News

For fifty years, from Symphony Hall to Singapore, the New Black Eagle Jazz Band has delighted audiences worldwide with its infectious, soulful and uplifting style of traditional New Orleans jazz. While paying homage to the greatest musicians of the early jazz era — Louis Armstrong, Jelly Roll Morton, Duke Ellington — the Grammy-nominated band has also developed its own eclectic sound, incorporating spirituals, 1920’s and 30’s popular music, and even some songs recorded by Elvis and Bob Dylan!

Widely-recognized as one of the premier traditional jazz bands in the world, the Black Eagles have been featured in numerous prestigious jazz festivals, including the Newport, JVC, Tanglewood, Edinburgh, and New Orleans Jazz and Heritage festivals, in addition to frequent appearances on A Prairie Home Companion show. With a Grammy nomination to their credit, a vast repertoire, seven inspired musicians, and a highly entertaining stage manner, it’s no wonder that the New York Times has noted that the Black Eagles are “So far ahead of other traditional bands…there is scarcely any basis for comparison.”
