Sun Valley Jazz Festival Artists
Listen to many styles of music at the festival, including: Traditional Jazz, Contemporary Jazz, Swing, Big Band, Zydeco, Gypsy Jazz, Blues and more.
Bill Allred’s Classic Jazz Band: In late 1989, Bill Allred’s Classic Jazz Band was born with the mission to find, research, and play some of the almost forgotten arrangements of the early jazz bands. What an exciting project! Their new sounds and combinations result in some very unusual treatments of old and new jazz material. This band is full of talented players with rich musical histories, including the leader Bill, whose father played jazz on the Mississippi steamboats.
Big Bang Jazz Band: Incorporating elements from early New Orleans jazz, Dixieland and the hot music of the ’20s and ’30s, variety is the name of the game for these young and highly energetic musicians. The band is adept at playing both sweet and steamy tunes. The Big Bang Jazz Band makes everybody excited about Dixieland jazz.
