Dixieland-style jazz band “Red Hook Ramblers” to perform at Transylvania March 2 at 1:30 and 7:30 p.m.; free and open to the public

The Red Hook RamblersLEXINGTON, Ky.—The Red Hook Ramblers, a traditional Dixieland-style jazz band from Brooklyn, New York, will give two free public concerts at Transylvania, Tuesday, March 2, at 1:30 and 7:30 p.m. in Carrick Theater.

The six-piece Dixieland jazz band includes a tuba, cornet, trombone, clarinet, banjo and drums, with many members contributing vocals. Audiences are frequently surprised by how powerful and exciting this instrumentation can be.

Since 2005, the Red Hook Ramblers have constantly been in demand for their New Orleans-style jazz at New York clubs, parties, festivals, churches, burlesque shows and more. Recent highlights have included a sold-out concert with Squirrel Nut Zippers, leading the Louis Armstrong House Museum’s celebration of Armstrong’s birthday, an ongoing residency at New York City’s famous Slipper Room and a documentary on the band produced by BRIC Arts. In 2010, the band plans to tour the U.S. and Europe.

The concerts are supported in part through a grant from the Ernest Woodruff and Susan Mitchell Delcamp Fund.
