The Isotope Stompers are an exhilarating seven-piece Dixieland Jazz Band who were originally founded over 30 years ago by a group of jazz musicians with connections to Brookhaven National Lab on Long Island, New York. Their music is generally classified as “Chicago-style” Dixieland, incorporating traditional New Orleans repertoire with a more modern and swinging rhythmic drive than older ragtime styles. You will recognize some of the band’s popular tunes like the rousing Tiger Rag, Fidgety Feet, Kid’s Ory’s famous Muskrat Ramble, the sad and moving St. James Infirmary Blues or Tin Roof Blues.
Keep an eye out for the Isotope Stompers at local libraries and community concerts across Long Island. They will start you hands clapping and toes tapping as they celebrate music, New Orleans style, all year long!
