Southside Aces: Celebrating the Hall Brothers Jazz Band

Feb 22 | 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Dinner and drinks service starts 1 hour before showtimes.

Traditional Jazz

Performing the music of Minnesota legends the Hall Brothers Jazz Band. From the late 1950s into the 21st Century the Hall Brothers played traditional jazz in the Twin Cities and around the country. Much of that time at their own club, The Emporium of Jazz, out in Mendota. Their importance in keeping the traditional jazz flame burning in these parts cannot be overestimated. It is safe to say, “No Hall Brothers, no Southside Aces.”

For two decades, the Southside Aces have performed the music of New Orleans from Jelly Roll Morton to Louis Armstrong to Preservation Hall and more.
