Every second Sunday of the month, Sacramento Traditional Jazz Society takes a step back into the Roaring ’20s—a time where jazz music dominated America’s dance clubs. The society’s Jazz Sunday holds three rooms full of jazz, swing dancing and socializing among enthusiasts. This month, Sacramento’s own West End Stompers will take to the Main Stage to perform for the midday audience of this mini-Jazz Jubilee.
Originally assembled by the Au brothers, Justin and Brandon, the West End Stompers is a traditional and swing jazz band that travels the country playing at competitions, festivals and lindy exchanges. The band features Brandon on trombone, Justin on trumpet, Otis Mourning on reeds, Bill Dindle and Arlyn Anderson playing guitar, Zack Sapunor on bass and Tim Metz on drums.
The Sacramento Traditional Jazz Society’s Jazz Sunday is three rooms of jazz play simultaneously. Featured guests play on the Main Stage, while “Gold Card Musicians” and jam sessions take place in the Gold Card Room and the Tailgate Room, respectively.
For more information, call (916) 444-2004 or visit sacjazz.org. Jazz Sunday is held at Elks Lodge No. 6 on Riverside Boulevard.
