Riverboat DIxie Jazz Band was formed in 1998 and is comprised of DIxieland musicians from the Conejo and San Fernando Valleys in California. The band is dedicated to playing traditional New Orleans style Dixieland music for the enjoyment of our listeners and to enhance the appreciation of early jazz.
Riverboat DIxie plays the jazz music that was popular through the 1920's, the "Jazz Age". Combining early American jazz tunes and audience participation, Riverboat Dixie entertainment is family oriented, exciting and upbeat for toe-tapping fun occasions.
Dixieland style jazz is truly an American musical art form. The sound is unmistakable. All of the musical forms that followed, such as seing, rock and roll, bebop and R & B have their roots firmly planted in Dixieland and early jazz. This music lifts the spirit and beats to the days when America was growing up and all things were possible.
