- Jazz musicians who specializes in the older styles of jazz
Jon Seiger and the All-Stars is something you wont soon forget. Their authentic renditions of songs by Louis Armstrong (and some by Ella Fitzgerald) will leave you feeling as if you were hearing Louis and his band performing live.
The band is made up of seasoned jazz musicians, all of whom “swing hard.” The band has performed at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, the Oakville Jazz Fest (Oakville, Ontario, Canada), the Festival de Jazz en Abril (Mar del Plata, Argentina), the Dublin Music and Art Festival, and many others, and has opened for Jimmy Smith and Curtis Fuller at the Ocho Rios Jamaica Jazz Festival.
Spending an evening with Jon Seiger and the All-Stars is more than just a fun evening of Louis tunes. In between songs the band tells anecdotes and personal recollections of Louis, so the performances are fun, humorous, and educational as well. And the band also plays a wide selection of varied jazz classics. One recent audience member said it best….. ” It was like taking a time machine back and hearing Louis band live!”
Jon Seiger is a unique performer in many ways. He is one of very few young jazz musicians who specializes in the older styles of jazz, and has played with many jazz greats. He can sound exactly like Louis Armstrong. He is also a deaf man, which makes the performances even more unique and well-received. Jon and the band love what they do, and love preserving the legacy of Louis. This comes through in their performances, making them stand out above other traditional jazz bands playing today.
