Saturday, Dec 1, 2007 • Isotope Stompers Dixeland Jazz Band • SDLI

Posted by Tom on 11/25/2007 • Permalink


Long Island’s best Dixieland Jazz Band will be playing for Swing Dance Long Island’s dancing pleasure at the Smithtown Historical Society’s Brush Barn, Saturday December 1, 2007.

Be ready for a great time. Fundamental swing lesson (to get you started), from 7:30PM to 8:00PM. With the Isotope Stompers performing at 8:00PM to 11:00PM.

Beginners are welcome & no partner is required.

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
