Focal Point 3rd Annual Traditional Jazz Series: Shake ‘Em Up Jazz Band (Night 1)

Since their formation in 2016, The Shake ‘Em Up Jazz Band has enjoyed a steady stream of bookings at various New Orleans clubs and festivals, including Preservation Hall and the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. The band includes St. Louis favorite (and former Pokey LaFarge band member) Chloe Feoranzo on clarinet and vocals. Chloe and her quartet sold out their Focal Point Friends of Traditional Jazz, Blues, and Ragtime show earlier this year. Also featured is Marla Dixon on trumpet and vocals (Marla is also the leader of the Shotgun Jazz Band; Shotgun headlined our inaugural jazz series in 2017). Additionally, the band includes: Molly Reeves on guitar and vocals, Haruka Kikuchi on trombone, Julie Schexnayder on bass, and Defne ‘Dizzy’ Incirlioglu on washboard. Last year, the band headlined Focal Point’s Second Annual Jazz Series and sold the room to absolute capacity; crowds of people who missed out on tickets listened from the street. This year they will play 2 shows.
