    A Musical Journey to the Birthplace of Jazz in 1920's New Orleans
    The Zippers will Provide a Delightful View Into This Mystical Era with Reverent, Yet Exciting, Renditions of Seminal Classics, Favorites from Their Catalogue, and Musings from Frontman Jimbo Mathus. Iconic Jazz Rockers Squirrel Nut Zippers have announced that they will be taking fans on a magical, musical voyage to the birthplace of Jazz as they present “Jazz from the Back O’ Town”–a four-show love letter to the prodigious New Orleans neighborhood known simply as the “Back O’ Town.

    These intimate, yet devilishly-entertaining shows, will explore the late 19thCentury through the Roaring 20s NOLA Jazz scene as the Zippers provide a delightful view into this mystical era with reverent, yet exciting, renditions of such seminal classics as Jelly Roll Morton’s “Animule Ball,” Louis Armstrong’s “Back O’ Town Blues,” and many others.
