Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola

Jon-Erik Kellso & The Mahogany Hall Pleasure Society Jazz Band featuring Brianna Thomas

Presented by Jazz at Lincoln Center and the New York Hot Jazz Festival

Trumpeter Jon-Erik Kellso and vocalist Brianna Thomas with clarinetist Evan Arntzen, trombonist Dion Tucker, banjo player Eddy Davis, and pianist Conal Fowkes

Trumpeter Jon-Erik Kellso is a first-call hot jazz musician who recently performed this same repertoire at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola alongside Wynton Marsalis. In addition to being a prolific recording artist and a long-term member of Vince Giordano & The Nighthawks, Kellso is also an acclaimed bandleader. His new project is the Mahogany Hall Pleasure Society Jazz Band, an expert group of musicians dedicated to performing early New Orleans Jazz. This is our final set of a special weekend co-presented with the New York Hot Jazz Festival, and we can’t think of a better way to wrap things up than to have a group of this caliber perform Louis Armstrong’s iconic music.
