(1) With jubilant vigor that spills from the stage to the streets, Firecracker Jazz Band revitalizes the energy of the roots of Jazz. In paying homage to the pioneers of early 20th Century Jazz, including that of Dixieland and New Orleans, the Firecracker Jazz Band carries the torch that was once lit by such greats as Jelly Roll Morton, Louis Armstrong & Bix Beiderbecke.
The Firecracker Jazz Band (fresh off a Kennedy Center appearance) plays the New Year’s Eve party at The White Horse Black Mountain. Show starts at 8 p.m. with a champagne toast at midnight. $25.
