AURORA NEALAND & THE ROYAL ROSES
March 13, 2022 @ 8:00 pm
The Royal Roses grew out of the rich resurgence that traditional jazz is seeing in New Orleans amongst the younger generation of musicians today. Saxophonist, clarinetist, and vocalist Aurora Nealand has been playing in various groups in New Orleans since 2005, and the Royal Roses, founded in 2010, is her first venture as a bandleader.
The Royal Roses draw their repertoire heavily from Sidney Bechet, Django Reinhart and traditional jazz of New Orleans. Comprised of some of the finest young players on the New Orleans music scene today, the Royal Roses are seeking to breathe new energy, arrangements and compositions into this genre of music while also exploring and learning from its rich history and tradition at once. They‘ve performed in New Orleans at the French Quarter Festival, Satchmo Summer Festival and Preservation Hall, as well as in NYC at Lincoln Center’s Out of Doors Festival. Their first album “A Tribute to Sydney Bechet: Live at Preservation Hall” was released in 2011 to national acclaim, and Nealand was subsequently named one of Downbeat Magazine’s Top 10 Rising Stars for soprano saxophone that year.
The Royal Roses are:
Aurora Nealand – saxophone, clarinet, (reeds), vocals
David Boswell – trumpet
Jon Ramm – trombone
Matt Perrine – sousaphone
Matt Bell – guitar, vocals
Paul Thibodeaux – drums
