About the Event
Half Nelson are a unique mix of musicians, from a wide variety of backgrounds. From New Orleans Jazz to Free Improvisation and all manner of music along the way. This big band style combination has helped to forge a band dedicated to the era of jazz we love. The 1920's to the 40's.
Half Nelson will take you on a midnight ride through the back alleys of New Orleans and the smokey Jazz dives of 1920's Harlem. From gritty Billie Holiday, to the smooth styling of Ella Fitzgerald. Add a shot of Louis Armstrong with a dash of Fats Waller and you have the energetic cocktail that is Half Nelson. Half Nelson deliver high energy, heartfelt jazz that is equally suited to a pub, jazz festival, sophisticated corporate function or an old basement speakeasy.
Dance up a storm or moan the blues away, but whatever you do, do it to Half Nelson.
