PUTNEY, Vt. – Next Stage Arts Project and Twilight Music present an evening of brass-fueled, swinging music of New Orleans by the Soggy Po Boys Saturday, Dec. 11 at 7:30 p.m. The jazz septet brings the party to street corners, clubs, festivals, and concert halls, celebrating the sounds and stories of New Orleans.
The Soggy Po Boys have spread the good news of New Orleans music across the Northeast and beyond since 2012. Stu Dias (vocals, guitar), Eric Klaxton (clarinet, soprano sax), Zach Lange (trumpet), Nick Mainella (tenor sax), Mike Effenberger (piano), Brett Gallo (drums), and Scott Kiefner (bass) explore the vast musical traditions of New Orleans, looking beyond NOLA jazz to include traditional Caribbean tunes, Meters funk, soul, and brass band-street beat music.
