For more than forty years, Woody Allen and His New Orleans Jazz Band have
been delighting audiences with their authentic mix of New Orleans inspired music. The band’s sound is firmly rooted in the music that Woody Allen has loved since his childhood and draws inspiration from such pioneers of the
music as Sidney Bechet, George Lewis, Johnny Dodds, Jimmie Noone, Jelly Roll Morton, Bunk Johnson and of course, Louis Armstrong.

Their repertoire consists of over 1200 songs and comprises a diverse collection of early 20th century popular tunes, hymns, spirituals, marches, blues and rags.

In keeping with the spontaneous nature of the music every performance is an energetic collection of improvisations; there is no play list, nor do the musicians know which song Allen, will call out next.

Woody’s first public performances took place with some like minded musicians at Michaels Pub in New York City in the mid 1970s. This became a regular Monday night engagement where the band performed for thousands of New Yorkers and visitors from all over the world. For twenty-five years, the group held a regular engagement on Monday nights at the renowned Carlyle Hotel in
Manhattan. Allen even missed accepting an Academy Award so as not to miss his Monday night gig.

In 1996, the band embarked on its first tour of Europe and was chronicled in the documentary film, “Wild Man Blues” and subsequent compact disc titled under the same. Since then, the band has returned to Europe on numerous occasions,
and has toured a number of times throughout the United States.
