Squirrel Nut Zippers Present: Jazz from the Back O’Town

November 10, 2023 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Iconic New Orleans based Jazz Rockers Squirrel Nut Zippers will be taking fans on a magical, musical voyage to the birthplace of Jazz as they present Jazz from the Back O’ Town. The show explores the New Orleans Back O’ Town Jazz scene of the late 19th century through the Roaring Twenties as the Zippers provide a delightful view into this mystical era with reverent, yet exciting, renditions of such seminal classics as Jelly Roll Morton’s “Animule Ball,” Louis Armstrong’s “Back O’ Town Blues,” as well as favorites from their own catalog, adapted and arranged to more closely echo the sounds of 1920s New Orleans. Performed in era appropriate attire. The Platinum selling group has sold over three million albums to-date, with their watershed album, Hot (1996), making them a household name. Recorded in the heat of New Orleans, fueled by a youthful hunger to unlock the secrets of old-world jazz, this pivotal release was just the beginning for the band.
