Jazz Weekend: Tenement Jazz Band: New Orleans Jazz Club

Tenement Jazz band are a traditional jazz band formed in early 2018 in Edinburgh, Scotland. Brought together by their shared love of New Orleans music, and comprising musicians from various corners of Edinburgh’s vibrant jazz scene, they are on a journey of exploration back to the roots of the music that they play.

Their aims are to capture the raw energy and excitement of the early jazz recordings, to find and revive lesser-heard songs and cultivate their own interpretations of these, all in order to captivate experienced jazzers, dancing persons, and uninitiated ears alike. 

In their brief existence so far they have performed at Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow Jazz Festivals, collaborated with various musicians via their own Cellar Session residency, and performed their own hit show on the Edinburgh Fringe telling the story of the 'Red Hot Roots of Jazz' from turn of the century New Orleans and beyond.

"a wonderful evening of happy, upbeat music from very talented and evidently passionate musicians"
- The Student (Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2018)

“A band of excellent players, this event was terrific fun in the relaxed, speak-easy atmosphere of the Jazz Bar.”
- The Scottish Review (Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2018)

"get everyone dancing, young and old."
- The Wee Review (Belladrum Festival 2018)
