The Red Hook Ramblers
The Red Hook Ramblers
Brooklyn's premier dixieland band, the Red Hook Ramblers first appeared on New York's revitalized traditional jazz scene in 2005 and rapidly found themselves among its leading torchbearers. They have been repeatedly honored to perform at the Louis Armstrong House Museum to celebrate Satchmo's birthday and have been interviewed and featured on New York radio and television stations, as well as on Time Out New York's website. The Ramblers opened for Squirrel Nut Zippers during their Fall 2009 tour, and will be touring Europe in the Spring of 2010. The band has appeared at notorious Jazz Age parties Shanghai Mermaid, Wit's End, and Dances of Vice, and have made a name for themselves as New York's premier live burlesque accompaniment through their ongoing residency at the Slipper Room, as well as appearances with Sugar Shack Burlesque and Harvest Moon's vaudeville productions. Members of the band have played with the Eddy Davis New Orleans Jazz Band, Les Paul, and the Bindlestiff Family Cirkus, and have performed at the annual Bix Beiderbecke festival near where the trumpet virtuoso died in Queens, NY. The Red Hook Ramblers are intent on preserving the music that permanently changed the American cultural landscape in the early part of the 20th Century and bringing live traditional jazz to new audiences around the world.
"Brooklyn's excellent Red Hook Ramblers make vintage jazz that conjures a delicious speakeasy vibe: You're just a step away from flappers, fancy shoes and illicit booze." – Time Out New York Magazine
"Said to be Brooklyn's premiere Dixieland band, the Red Hook Ramblers are animated and larger than life, and are as delightful to watch as they are to listen to. United by their collective passion for the time-honored musical genres of classic jazz, blues, spirituals and ragtime, the Ramblers take pride in performing this compelling music of a by-gone era."
