Event description

Description

The Second Line Survivors specialize in the street beat grooves that made New Orleans music famous and laid the foundations for all modern jazz styles. The members of Second Line Survivors bring almost 200 years of collective professional music experience to the stage, and among them they have 11 advanced degrees in music. In spite of all this formal education, the group swings with a fierce abandon that will force even the most stubborn toes to tap. Led by vocalist and tuba player Jim Shearer and featuring the brilliant and historically-informed drumming of Ricky Malichi, the group plays a wide array of music from the entire recorded history of jazz. No style is off limits, and the group explores music as diverse as that of Fats Waller, Louis Armstrong, and Duke Ellington, through more modern styles of jazz including Miles Davis and Thelonious Monk, right up to the contemporary music of Dr. John, Leon Redbone, Jamie Cullum, and the great Tom Waits. Presented by KRWG.
