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 weekly jazz band rehearsal. Middleton Jazz plays traditional jazz tunes, mostly in the ‘Dixieland’ style, with an emphasis on improvised solos. With seven horns and a full rhythm section, we play everything from blues to big band arrangements.
Last year we played 14 public and private performances, including The Dean House Back Porch Concert Series, the Stoughton Area Senior Center’s Music Appreciation Series, and Strollin’ Middleton (sponsored by the Greater Madison Jazz Consortium and Middleton Community Development Authority).
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.
