Banjos N Brass to play Clifton Opera House

Springfield Banjos N Brass will play the historic Clifton Opera House on Saturday, Nov. 27 at 7:30 p.m.

This interesting group mixes a blend of traditional jazz forms to provide a wide variety of sounds of the ragtime and early jazz eras. They add several different modes of playing, with they’re various instruments, such as brass, woodwinds, percussion, bass, banjos, vocals, guitars, and Honky Tonk piano. The selection of “Tin Pan Alley” tunes were the Hit Parade numbers of that era, and the lycerists and composers were the elite of that era, making them classic numbers transcending the decades of popular music.

The music is toe-tapping to say the least, and the zest the performers exhibit duing the performance makes the show “contagious” to the audience. They have been performing for nearly forty years around western Ohio region and have performed for high level dignitaries. The Clifton Opera House is owned and operated by the Village of Clifton as a fund raiser for the historic building maintenance fund. Call 937.767.2343 for information. Box office opens at 6:30pm.
