Tune into the New Orleans Music Show with Sherwood Collins on Thursday at noon to hear one of New Orleans' most beloved entertainers, Washboard Chaz, and his band of musical friends including violinist Neti Vann. It's just one of the many live broadcasts we've got on tap for our Spring 2010 Membership Drive.
Only in New Orleans could a band like the New Orleans Moonshiners exist – a group of seven dedicated, educated young musicians with one goal in mind: carrying on and building upon the tradition of New Orleans jazz. With a lineup of trumpet, clarinet, saxophone, trombone, banjo, upright bass, and drums, the Moonshiners play songs by Louis Armstrong, WC Handy, Sidney Bechet and Django Reinhardt, as well as exciting originals, drawing an enthusiastic following of swing dancers, music fans, and fellow musicians alike.
They will be performing live in the WWOZ studios to support us during our Spring 2010 Membership Drive.
