Summer JazzFest – Grove Street Stompers

Formed in 1959 by band leader and piano player Bill Dunham, this fabulous group’s repertoire includes samples of Dixieland, New Orleans and swing styles with tunes made famous by such greats as Bix, Louies and Jelly Roll.

Many great jazz musicians sat in with the Stompers over the years – Pete Fountain, Wild Bill Davison, Tony Parenti, Bob Wilber, and singers Barbara Lea and Laurel Watson.  Some of the Stompers have worked at venues like Eddie Condons, Jimmy Ryans, Red Blazer Too, and Cajun, among others.

Making their Bickford debut, this group has been a Monday night staple at New York’s venerable Arthur’s Tavern since 1962 – over 50 years!  This may be the oldest gig in town, maybe the world!

Join us for the swinging sounds of summer!
