One of the most respected bands in America, The New Black Eagle Jazz Band , now in it's 36th year, plays traditional jazz. Their style covers a wide range found in early New Orleans, 1920’s Chicago, 1930's small band jazz, the revival of the 1940's and 1950's and in original pieces written by band members. Their repertoire of over 600 numbers includes Rags by such as Scott Joplin, arranged for the band; spirituals and gospel music; old pop tunes from the start of the 20th century to the 1960's; and blues.
