The Southside Aces will increase their ranks to seven when Henry Blackburn joins them on the stand to present a whole evening of the music of New Orleans clarinet and soprano saxophone great, Sidney Bechet. The Aces go deep into Bechet’s catalogue, and Blackburn helps you feel what it must have been like to sit in a jazz club of 1950s Paris.

Southside Aces play Sidney Bechet

Southside Aces perform traditional New Orleans jazz. The band first began as the brainchild of Clarinetist Tony Balluff and Sousaphone player Erik Jacobson. Their whispers and rumors materialized in Tony’s foyer near Pillsbury and 27th in South Minneapolis, late August 2003. Since their first gig on a flatbed truck in Apple Valley, they’ve played weddings, festivals, clubs— “music furnished for all occasions.”
The Aces have self-produced and released five CDs: All Aboard!!, Bucktown Bounce, A Big Fine Thing, their Christmas album, Santaphone, and their latest, Second Thursday.
