About The Event
NICKEL-A-DANCE is a free series of Sunday afternoon jazz concerts each spring and fall, that is a hit with children, families, seniors, and the general dancing public that don’t tend to go to nightclubs. It attracts a diverse group of fans that meet on Frenchmen Street to celebrate jazz as America’s original dance music while listening to the best of today’s classic jazz bands. This season the series features 4 acclaimed band leaders.
Next up is Joe Goldberg. Albert Murray Defined The Saturday-Night Function as "a purification ritual where you get rid of the blues," Joe Goldberg and the Function does just that. Joe Goldberg, bandleader, started the band in 2016 as band to showcase the talented musicians in his community while always keeping the music 'for the dancers'. With danceability paramount, The Function delivers classics and original music with heat. The Function will transform any room into a party drawing inspiration from greats from the past and today including Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Johnny Hodges, Thelonious Monk, Wessell Anderson III, Marcus Roberts, Wynton Marsalis, and more.
