Musical Themes

A popular feature has been added to our concert repertoire, namely musical themes.  Since the Dixie Diehards strive to preserve the traditional jazz, we all know as Dixieland, we have created special programs ( concerts ) that focus on a particular aspect of this unique style of American music.

Here is a partial list of musical programs (themes ) we offer:

  • The “Evolution of Jazz”
  • Early Jazz Composers
  • Featured Jazz Artists
  • Mardi Gras Tunes
  • Tour New Orleans Neighborhoods
  • Up the Mississippi tunes
  • Roarin’ Twenties
  • Strolling Down Tin Pan Alley
  • Road Trip Across USA
  • Special Holiday Music

Each of these programs ( themes) last about two hours in length.  Some involve audience participation, i.e. Roarin’ 20’s audience members are encouraged to wear period clothing, and dance to the music of the 20’s.  Details of each theme can be found here.
