LACONIA — Dr. Sax’s Dixie Band is scheduled to perform Sunday, October 19 at 3 p.m. at Taylor Community’s Woodside Building, 435 Union Avenue.
Dr. Sax's Dixie Band plays the definitive New Orleans jazz works of the early 1900’s. Modeled after the Dixieland river boat groups and marching brass bands of the era, this four-piece instrumental group performs classic popular songs, blues, and spirituals. Band leader Jonathan Lorentz (AKA “Dr. Sax”) calls his Dixie Band “just plain fun” and adds that “this music is full of swing and history.” Lorentz leads his four-horn band through a songbook that features the staple masterworks: Blues Skies, Lady Be Good, When You’re Smiling, the St. Louis Blues, Just a Closer Walk with Thee, When the Saints Go Marching In, and more.
Dr. Lorentz is a daring and creative improviser who aims to play challenging and thought-provoking music, while remaining entertaining for modern audiences. He believes strongly in the interactive and collaborative “human element” of music making. The Dixie Band also features the highly-acclaimed young trumpeter Zachary Lange; longstanding band member and Saxophonist Eric Klaxton and lower brass virtuoso Claude Fried, known for deftly alternating between trombone, tuba, baritone horn, and his signature horn, the sousaphone.
The event is free and open to the public. This concert is generously being sponsored by Joan Allison, Dr. Doris Citron, Harriett Morse, Carolyn Parker, Margery Steady and Ruth Webb. For more information, visit www.taylorcommunity.org or call 366-1400.
