Hal Smith and the
On The Levee
Sunday, January 6, 2019
at Capital City
Join us on Sunday, January 6 from 2 to 5 pm at Cap City Comedy Club when ATJS will be introducing Hal Smith's On the Levee Jazz Band to Austin! The band takes its name from the San Francisco nightclub, On the Levee, owned by Kid Ory from 1958 –1961. This Kid Ory tribute band will be one of the highlights of the season.
The well-blended front line of Clint Baker, Ben Polcer and Joe Goldberg backed by the New Orleans swing of Hal Smith, Kris Tokarski, Joshua Gouzy and Alex Belhaj produces a sound that pays homage to the Kid Ory tradition, but with fresh ideas from the individual musicians.
The band delights in playing danceable music from a traditional repertoire that includes stomps, rags, marches, blues and vintage popular songs. The band will be coming off their appearance at the San Diego Jazz Festival. Please join us on Sunday, January 6 from 2:00 to 5:00 pm at Cap City Comedy Club for this very
