Aug 19, 2023 | 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
Classic New Orleans Jazz
The Southside Aces have spent two decades playing all the New Orleans greats. From Jelly Roll Morton to Louis Armstrong and Sidney Bechet, to Fats Domino and Preservation Hall. And with the 2022 release of their 8th album, Minneapolis Bump, they’ve added fifteen originals to the jazz canon. Treat yourself to a century’s worth of New Orleans Jazz.

Clarinetist Tony Balluff and sousaphonist Erik Jacobson brought the Southside Aces together in the summer of 2003 with the desire to play the music of the old New Orleans dance halls. They now can look back at two decades of jazz festivals, swing dances, weddings, concerts, funerals—all the places New Orleans music can go.
