Middleton Jazz was started in 2009 as a semi-monthly jam session at the Middleton Senior Center. As players became more familiar with one another and with the music, the jam developed into a band. Middleton Jazz plays traditional jazz tunes, mostly in the ‘Dixieland’ style, with an emphasis on instrumental solos.
While traditional jazz provides the primary foundation, the band plays a variety of styles. Audiences are likely to hear songs from the Big Band era, Blues, Dixieland and ’50s Rock and Roll, performed by good ensemble work and fine soloists. Middleton Jazz is available for local events in and around the Middleton community such as private parties, holiday parties, corporate events, picnics, birthdays, anniversaries, retirements and the like.
