The Serenaders is a premium 1930s jazz orchestra, featuring some of the finest musicians in New York City
The band is the number one New Orleans Jazz Band in New York, and features trumpet, saxophone, clarinet, and piano as the leading instruments. Each performance will take you on a ride back to Louis Armstrong's hometown, New Orleans, into the 30s.
The band also features an exquisite vocalist, and explores the wonderful songbook left behind by Billie Holiday, bringing out some of the hardest swing players to life and some of the greatest pop tunes ever written in the 30s and the 40s.
The repertoire features precise transcriptions and subtle adaptations of Benny Goodman and Charlie Christian Sextet, as well as thoughtful forays into the combo work of Duke Ellington, Count Basie, as well as some of the later 40s material by Roy Eldridge.
