The Side Street Strutters
In 1983 a group of talented musicians attending Arizona State University formed a musical ensemble whose artistic focus centered around the musical traditions of early New Orleans jazz. Now, over 25 years later, the same core members are still together and have expanded their musical palette to include over a half-century of jazz styles from early New Orleans Dixieland and blues to big band swing and popular standards. The Strutters have presented formal concerts, symphony pops performances and student outreach programs in fifty states, seven European countries, Canada and Mexico. Their superb musicianship and award-winning orchestrations have earned them national and international acclaim: NEA awarded fellowships and grants; California Arts Council and Northwest On Tour Roster Artists; First Place Honors, Breda International Jazz Competition, Holland; National radio and television appearances; International Association of Jazz Educators Outstanding Musicianship Award; appearances at dozens of European and U.S. jazz festivals, and a guest presidential performance — all this, in addition to their regular performances at California's Disneyland. In concert, The Side Street Strutters weave a delicate tapestry of lush ballads, whimsical novelty selections, and powerful, challenging arrangements which showcase the individual artistry of each performer. Together, this energetic and entertaining septet brilliantly captures the essential charm and vibrant energy of Jazz — America's musical heritage.
