Hot Dixieland on a Cold January Night!

Over 80 people braved teperatures in the single digits to gather in the Van Deusen Room on January 14th to enjoy some smoking hot Dixieland jazz from the Greater Kalamazoo Dixieland Society Jazz Band. The five-piece band treated those in attendance to over an hour of traditional New Orleans Dixieland interspersed with information about the historical tunes. It was truly an entertaining evening that ended with the horn section parading around the room during "The Saints Go Marching In." It was another amazing show in KPL's monthly concert series.

The next show will featured critically acclaimed singer-songwriter, Peter Mulvey, on February 18th at 7:00 pm. Don't miss the artist Rolling Stone called "A voice lush and hushed that occasionally sinks into a whisper... surrealistic beauty."
