Dixieland RamblersMedim

The Prescott Jazz Summit presents THE DIXIELAND RAMBLERS from Grand Rapids, Michigan, who have entertained audiences with their lively and engaging Dixieland Jazz music since 1957.  They have performed with Al Hirt, Pete Fountain, The Dukes of Dixieland and have played the ballroom circuit. 

After a hiatus of some years, the band got back together – and where better to do that than in the City of New Orleans.  With a revitalized interest in bringing “America’s True Art Form” to many more people, The Dixieland Ramblers have taken to the road to tour and perform.  Their repertoire comes from the golden age of jazz music in the 1920’s, the swing era of the 1930’s, 1940’s and beyond. 

Come experience the essence of New Orleans Jazz.  Mike Vax, the director of the Prescott Jazz Summit, welcomes The Dixieland Ramblers as their guest artist on trumpet. 

When: April 2, 2011, 8:00pm

Where: Hotel St. Michael’s ballroom, downtown Prescott. 

Tickets in advance at the Chamber of Commerce, online at  or at the door.  Price:  $20
