The Flying Eagles Jazz Band was formed at the Sacramento Trad Jazz Adult Camp in 2010. The style runs the gamut of Traditional Jazz styles, from the Original Dixieland Jazz Band to King Oliver, Fats Waller to a more modern-style Dixieland made famous by Kenny Ball. The band also plays slow blues favorites, up-tempo Dixieland classics, 1930s – 1940s popular swing, and even popular tunes. Regardless of your musical taste, this band guarantees to keep the audience dancing and their toes tapping.
Jim Broadstreet (trumpet) is the leader. John Tanko (reeds) and Bill Badstubner (trombone) fill out the “front line.” Rich Owens (piano), Jeff Green (banjo guitar), Gerry Turner (tuba/bass), and Allan Grissette (drums) set down the driving rhythm.
