In 1983, a group of talented musicians attending Arizona State University formed a musical ensemble whose artistic focus centered around the traditions of early New Orleans jazz. Now, more than 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 Dixieland and blues, to big band swing and popular standards.
In concert, the Side Street Strutters borrow from their extensive repertoire of beautifully crafted arrangements, colorful costumes, tap dancing, and years of showmanship and musicianship to create a fun-filled evening centered on jazz-America’s musical heritage. Recently, the ensemble unveiled its new program, “Shiny Stockings,” featuring the vocal stylings of Meloney Collins, to capture the essential charm and vibrant energy of the golden age of jazz.
