the gotham easy

The Gotham Easy is a hot jazz band born on the mean streets of NYC. While being completely at ease playing classic standards in the time-honored New Orleans tradition, the band brings a brash vitality to music that is all too often treated as a delicate museum piece. The Gotham Easy’s members have been playing together since 2006, performing at house parties, weddings, bars, clubs, speakeasies, film festivals, theaters, churches, burlesque shows, variety shows, award shows, swing dances, parades, funerals, radio stations, museums, universities, zoos, parks, libraries, European jazz festivals, NFL games, and Jazz at Lincoln Center. Whether revitalizing the traditional jazz canon with their excitement and energy, or whipping an audience into a frenzy with their raucous original compositions, the Gotham Easy brings the music of the early 20th century into the early 21st century with a fresh style and attitude.
