Cornet Chop Suey has enjoyed a rapid rise since 2001 when they performed for the first time at the Sacramento Jazz Jubilee. The seven-piece band plays Dixie to bop, as well as pop tunes, in a show style. The band is named after an obscure Louis Armstrong composition, but they are best known for a wide variety of styles.
This well-traveled band has toured across the country playing over 17 various festivals in one year alone, as well as performances in Europe, South America, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and Germany, among others.
Many of the musicians in the band are educators, as well as performers, and have performed with other popular festival bands prior to forming into one of America’s hottest jazz bands.
Chop Suey applies its own exciting style to traditional jazz, swing, blues and “big production” numbers. Each performance by Cornet Chop Suey is a high-energy presentation and is always a memorable experience for the audience.
