Can Do for You As a Band
If you’re in the North Texas area, you’re probably familiar with a humble little band which goes by the name of ‘the Razzmajazz Dixieland Band.’ Our band has been together since the 1980s, and we’ve grown to be really tight-knit over the many years. We’re known for our high energy performances coupled with some comedic features too.
Our band is known for all things jazz. Over the years, we’ve incorporated an eclectic mix of famous numbers from the 20s, 30s, 40s, and 50s. 30 years of performing have led us to improvise and put our spin on crowd favorites. Every performance has a unique flavor. Here are some of the jazz styles we perform:
As our name suggests, we started off as a Dixieland band, performing hits all over Dallas. Our aim was to keep guests entertained throughout. Each performance is bespoke to the ambiance we’re asked to create. Setting the mood and atmosphere for our music is an important part of our process.
Dixieland, or Hot Jazz, as it’s referred to, incorporates string instruments. This jazz style is high energy and is perfect for a birthday, or stage performances.
Swing music was huge back in the 30s and 40s all over the United States. Using a combination of offbeat arrangements while emphasizing solo performances, the genre has blended in with other jazz forms.
With big names like Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald contributing to the jazz style, it was bound to stay evergreen. Our performances include many classic swing numbers that our audiences never get tired of hearing.
Ragtime is known to be the oldest style of jazz, that peaked around the late 1800s. The Afro-American communities were instrumental in developing and making this style known to the world. Jazz was born out of great pain and emotion that stemmed from slavery, adding to its historic value.
Our ragtime performances have been a success at various corporate events, weddings, and farewells too. Our experienced band members have managed to preserve the nostalgic quality of this music genre for the many decades we’ve been together.
This one’s for those who want a bit of everything. Our traditional jazz performances include a bit of Dixieland, Ragtime, and Swing. Our performance goes through stages of high energy music to more relaxing tunes that take the audience back to the yesteryears.
Other than playing for occasions, weddings, parties, and corporate events, our band also performs as a marching band and at Mardi Gras parades. Our unplugged arrangement has taken parades by storm. We just love the energy that goes around at such events! Since our instruments are unplugged we can interact with the audience and set up anywhere.
