South Florida State College Jazz Series Continues with Bill Allred and The New Orleans Nighthawks in February
Going to a Bill Allred’s Classic Jazz Band set is much like attending a symposium on the history of jazz. You are apt to hear anything from Jelly Roll Morton to Count Basie and all the stops in between. The band uses the five-horn front line typical of such bands as those of Matty Matlock, Billy Maxted, and Red Nichols, as well as The World’s Greatest Jazz Band.
Clarinetist John Skillman fronts a solid rhythm section with the addition of two trombone players which makes the voicing and arrangement most unique among trad bands. A fun night of traditional swing and New Orleans Dixie Land!

Representing a collection of musicians from Canada, American and Germany, this eight-piece band masterfully presents classic Dixieland jazz. The band has toured worldwide since its beginnings in 2004.
