No matter where you live, you won’t be a stranger to the global pandemic that’s engulfed all our lives since the start of 2020. As we continue to try to grapple with these circumstances, the incredible fighting spirit of people everywhere has been inspiring, to say the least. One of the ways that people have been coping with the situation is by turning to music and the arts.
Over our 34 years of experience, the Razzmajazz Dixieland Band has witnessed the incredible power of music. Our high-energy, live performances have enabled people to get to their feet, mingle, and dance as they make new friends and bond over their similarities.
We’ve performed at weddings, corporate events, intimate dinners, and grand openings in our years of experience, bringing lively performances all over North Texas.
Music moves us deeply
Music has been a part of the human experience for as long as we’ve existed. Across generations and over the centuries, the music we know today plays a vital role in our lives.
You might have come across videos of people in quarantine, singing and playing instruments from their balconies in a bid to maintain social distancing. If anything, not only is this a testament to people’s strength, it’s also a sign that music is an unbreakable force that binds us all.
Music and your mental health
These difficult times can take a toll on anyone’s mental wellbeing, leading to feelings of isolation and hopelessness. At a time like this, turning to some positive influences can help you break free from harmful patterns.
How your brain reacts to the music you hear can have an impact on your mood and outlook on life. Music is said to stimulate different parts of the brain and lights up reward centers that give off feel-good chemicals.
Listening to music doesn’t just improve your mood, it also exercises your brain’s cognitive abilities. Upbeat, fast-paced music—such as jazz music—has an uplifting effect on your mood and makes you feel more positive and optimistic about the things around you. Stress-relief and relaxation are some of the primary reasons people are turning to music during these trying times.
At a time when we’re all so disconnected by our differences, music gives an outlet to people to express themselves. While physical distance, language, and location may separate people, they’re connected through the universal language of music.
By stirring up your deepest emotions and making you feel a certain way, music is the force that binds us together in tough times. Such is the power of jazz music in conveying the feelings of the talented musicians who produced these tunes decades ago. While their struggle may have been different, the basic emotion can be felt by us even today.
