The New Black Eagle Jazz Band

They’re back and better than ever!! The world famous Black Eagles, celebrating their 42nd year, capture the essence and energy of classical jazz - from  rags  and blues to familiar pop tunes and early swing - music made famous by such jazz greats as Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington. In the words of the N.Y. Times' music critic John Wilson, "the Black Eagles are so far ahead of other traditional bands...there is scarcely any basis for comparison." It promises to be a high-powered and joyful evening.

Snarky Puppy delivers raw funk and sensitive dynamics, relentless pocket and lyrical melodicism, lush harmony and soulful simplicity, and most importantly, a delicate mixture of composition and improvisation.
