Nickel-A-Dance Presents:


Norbert Susemihl.jpg

The New Orleans Dance Hall Band got together as a quartet in 2018 and recorded an album that year as a tribute to the legendary New Orleans musicians, like Billie and De De Pierce, Sweet Emma Barrett, Kid Thomas Valentine, George Lewis, Josiah "Cie" Frazier and many more. These legendary musicians played their very special music in the local Crescent City dance halls in the 30s, 40s and 50s of the last century. Luthjen’s, Speck’s Moulin Rouge, Economy Hall, Kohlman’s Tavern and San Jacinto Hall were some of them. These places were simple neighborhood bars with a small stage and dance floor, where the locals would meet, socialize and dance, or halls available for rent, to host many kinds of social events. The music was pure New Orleans Jazz of the era, and the repertoire consisted of popular songs of the time. Now for this occasion augmented to the New Orleans Dance Hall Sextet, the band is greatly inspired by this music and its players and strives to capture the feeling and sound of this art form. Norbert Susemihl has been a part-time resident of New Orleans now for 41 years. When out of town he leads his European Band, "Norbert Susemihl's Joyful Gumbo" and he tours as soloist.
