‘Boiler Hot Club' brings Dixieland to Purdue
Traditional jazz - often referred to as “Dixieland” - will be the focus of a new jazz group named the Boiler Hot Club at Purdue Bands this fall. Consisting of from 5 to 7 players, under the direction of Dr. M. T. “Mo” Trout, this group will give students a chance to explore this traditional New Orleans/Chicago jazz style.
From the legendary “Salty Dogs” to the “Riverboat Ramblers” Dixieland has had a long history at Purdue and in the northern Indiana region with various groups achieving prominence around the area. Not only will this group perform in concert along with the other jazz bands, this group will provide a unique role as the only jazz group that doubles as an “athletic pep band.”
The group will be seen performing at various sporting events such as a few baseball games, wrestling events, and others.
The first public performance will be during the pre-game events at Homecoming on September 23, 2006. If you are a Purdue student and interesting in auditioning for this new group contact Mo Trout at email@example.com . A wide range of instruments are eligible and he's particularly interested in finding a good banjo player.
