Al Harrison Dixieland Band

Sunday, June 24, 2018 - 2:00 to 4:30 p.m.

Looking Ahead: Tri-State Jazz All-Stars

This TSJS favorite, which last performed for the Society in Wallingford two years ago, returns this time to Haddonfield. "The Al Harrison Dixieland Band is a polished ensemble with enough firepower, as Duke Ellington would say, to 'scorch the moon!'" - Jim McGann, The Strutter, Tri-State Jazz Society. “A great, lively band that preserves the tradition of classic jazz without embalming it. The creativity is at full throttle, and so is the sense of fun. You can’t listen to Al and his friends and not feel better about life in general.” - Joe Barron, music reporter, Montgomery Newspapers.

Musicians and attendees rank the Tri-State Jazz All-Stars among the best. This year the core quintet consists entirely of TSJS veterans assembled and directed by Dr. Bob Rawlins, who will call tunes from the traditional Dixieland through swing eras and invite musicians (some of whom seldom have the opportunity to play together) to sit in with the core ensemble as the concert progresses. Don’t miss this great annual event!
