The Jazzical 6 (Dixieland Band)

Jazzical6This is the Jazzical 6 – a good-time, fun-time Dixieland and Swing Band. This band swings! We play for private parties, concerts, Dixieland Festivals and dances. Give us a try!

Below you can hear some some past examples of music that I play in this style with many of my musician friends. This spans many years. In particular – I want to dedicate these sounds to Frank Leal, Ralston Brown, Dave Lario and Marv Plotkin (The Dixie Peaches), who have passed on. Yes, that’s the wonderful, my long-time partner, bassist/vocalist Dave Lario singing on “Do you know what it means to miss New Orleans”. This music brings back lots of great memories for me.
