Saturday, Jun 2, 2007 • Swing with the Isotope Stompers Dixieland Jazz Band • SDLI

Posted by Tom on 06/04/2007 • SwingPermalink


Ron Hammond and the Isotope Stompers Dixieland Jazz Band are back for another fun filled evening of Swing Dancing.

Band: Isotope Stompers Dixieland Jazz Band

The Isotope Stompers are an exhilarating seven-piece Dixieland Jazz Band whose roots are in the Northeastern United States. This music, however, comes from way down South in New Orleans where this foot-stomping music called “jazz” grew out of spirituals and marches of the Bourbon Street area. You will recognize some of the band’s popular Dixieland tunes like the rousing Tiger Rag, In the Mood, Figgity Feet, Kid’s Ory’s famous Muskrat Ramble, A train, the sad and moving St. James Infirmary Blues or The Tin Roof Blues.

The emphasis is on what is known as “revival jazz”, the traditional New Orleans-style music spiced up with greater drive and tempo for dancing.

They will have you clapping your hands and tapping your toes…for THE ISOTOPE STOMPERS celebrate Mardi Gras, New Orleans style, all year long!  image
