Because the members of the Panorama Jazz Band need no electricity to fire up their instruments, they express natural human energy and bring their party to any bar room, street corner, living room, back porch or international music festival. The instruments in this band (clarinet, saxophone, trombone, accordion, banjo, tuba, and drums) have been inspiring people to dance for generations and the group’s repertoire draws on the most exciting music from around the world: funky New Orleans jazz, tropical rhythms of the Caribbean, and exotic melodies of Eastern Europe. When they play feet stomp, hands clap, and butts shake. Rowdy or gentle, sweet or hot - people move!
“Panorama’s acoustic sound, produced solely by wind and muscle, insists on a physical response…This is New Orleans - meaning America - at its most panoramic. A land where a waltz fades into brass band jazz, where a Gypsy chochek bumps up against a Creole Mazurka.” - Michael Tisserand
