ABOUT THE JAZZBUGS
Led by clarinet/sax virtuoso Dr. Jazz, our music spans the 78 rpm era, from ragtime to twenties to swing; energetically played and complete with harmony vocals. We’ve been playing as a group for about ten years. For the past four, we’ve had a steady Sunday night gig at Nietzsche’s nightclub in downtown Buffalo. We’ve also played at the Lewiston Jazz Festival and the Niagara Jazz Festival.
BRIAN BAUER (leader, clarinet/saxes, vocals) has performed with well-known musicians including Leon Redbone, Bonnie Raitt, and John Hammond Jr., as well as countless jazz/blues/rock combos of all sizes and styles. Expert in all styles of jazz from ragtime to bebop, Brian’s first love is 1920’s jazz.
ED WOODS (bass, vocals) has been a jazz musician around Buffalo for many years, first playing with Brian in the 1990’s in an R & B band “The Jump Kings”.
WILL WILSON (banjo, guitar, vocals) Will has played in countless dixieland and swing groups, and was guest banjo soloist for the Niagara Symphony’s 1998 centennial salute to George Gershwin.
