Details

The Night Blooming Jazzmen (NBJ, or "Nightbloomers") is a traditional, or dixieland band, formed in October 1975 to represent the Society for the Preservation of Dixieland Jazz at the third Sacramento Jubilee. There were very few jazz bands in existence then – not enough to put on a festival. The NBJ was started as an ad-hoc "pick-up band." It was not expected to survive – but the NBJ were so well-received and had so much fun that they stuck together. Since then, they have played thousands of concerts, church services, funerals, house parties, grand openings, jazz clubs, wedding receptions, dances, etc .. AND several dozen cruises and land trips to China, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Alaska, Hawaii, the Caribbean, the Panama Canal, the Amazon, the Mediterranean, and many other parts of Europe.”

"The Big Sirs of Swing" is a Gypsy Jazz Quartet based on the Central Coast of California. They play the music stylings of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli, who originated the Gypsy Jazz genre in France in the 1930s. Fun and Danceable music!The Big Sirs play and sing original Django tunes, classic Jazz and Swing standards, as well as original music of their own, all in the exciting and toe tapping flavor of Gypsy Jazz.
The band consists of:
Daniel Cimo on Violin and Vocals
Forrestt Williams on Lead Guitar
Ron Mileur on Rhythm Guitar
Alex Morrison on Stand up Bass

The Jam session is an opportunity for local musicians, including youth, to play together on stage and both teach and learn the ebb and flow of Traditional Jazz music. We host guest Traditional Jazz bands to perform for our members and guests. The bands are often World-Class and come from throughout the state from San Diego to San Francisco.

Food and drinks are served for very reasonable prices during the session to keep the members fortified. Menus are listed monthly in the newsletter. Dancing and socializing are encouraged! You may even see an impromptu New Orleans style parasol parade! Admission is only $5 for members of BSR and $10 for non-members. Silver members attend for free. Where else can you get so much live jazz for such a great price?
