Founded and directed Steve Call, the Jazz Legacy Dixieland Band has performed throughout the United States and Japan and has presented a concert at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C., representing Utah in the Millennium Stage State Days Concert Series.

Call said people are attracted to the toe-tapping music of Dixieland jazz because it is fun to play and fun to listen to.

"There is something very appealing about traditional jazz," he said. "It is a very happy, upbeat kind of music."

The band consists of Steve Call, director; George Bailey, clarinet and vocals; Jonathan Skarda, clarinet; Tyler Jensen, saxophones, clarinet and vocals; Daniel Henderson, trumpet and vocals; Alisha Ard, trombone and vocals; Kristen Bromley, banjo, guitar, and vocals; Jennie Bangerter, piano and vocals; Joe Jensen, tuba; and Tim Fellow, drums.

Special guests will include Russ Germer and Shannon Roberts on trombone, as well as 76 trombonists recruited from BYU and the local community.
