Woody Allen & The Eddy Davis New Orleans Jazz Band
It has been 36 years since Woody and his New Orleans Jazz Band, lead by musical director Eddy Davis, have been delighting audiences with a unique mix of New Orleans inspired music and 23 years since their very first European tour in 1996, where they played 19 concerts in 21 days. This was captured for the much-acclaimed documentary “Wild Man Sings the Blues’”, which was filmed by Oscar-winning director, Katherine Bigelow, who shadowed Woody and the band throughout the tour.
The show will be improvised with no firm set list as always and will comprise a diverse collection of early twentieth century tunes, hymns, blues and rag, drawing inspiration from a range of artists, including legendary performers such as Sidney Bechet, George Lewis, Johnny Dodds, Jimmie Noone and Louis Armstrong.
