Their hometown is Hartford, not New Orleans, but French 75 conjured up an authentic Crescent City sound at Riverlink Park in Amsterdam recently. The band – Alex Kollias (clarinet), Seth Bailey (trumpet), John Birt (banjo), Mark Macksoud (drums) and Allison Lazur (tuba) conjured up irresistible brand of vintage traditional jazz.

UPCOMING: There’s a different kind of Big Easy beat headed into Riverlink Park at 7pm on Saturday (August 19). The free concert features the uber-funky sounds of the New Orleans Suspects, fueled by the syncopated rhythms of former Neville Brothers drummer Willie Green.
