Mike Flaherty's Dixieland Direct Jazz Band

1310 S. Pollard Street Arlington, VA
MIKE FLAHERTY'S DIXIELAND DIRECT Jazz Band is an exciting and energetic Washington, DC, based band, that specializes in traditional New Orleans Dixieland music, but its versatility encompasses other styles as well, these range from the music of the swing era, to society music to the Blues. Although DIXIELAND DIRECT performs with as many as seven musicians, the nucleus of the group is a trio. Fashioned after the Swing and Dixieland styles of Benny Goodman and Pete Fountain, DIXIELAND DIRECT features Henning Hoehne on clarinet, Bob Boguslaw on piano and Mike Flaherty on drums. Along with being featured on numerous recordings, members of DIXIELAND DIRECT have been featured at major jazz festivals and have toured extensively throughout the United States and abroad. Focusing on musicianship as well as entertainment, the band combines humorous lyrics and a dose of bandstand shtick to make a fun-filled and enjoyable time for all audiences. The band is uniquely complemented with its own arrangers and an extensive library of over 500 arrangements. The collection includes arrangements from the early Scott Joplin Rags, Louis Armstrong, Fats Waller, Cole Porter and Duke Ellington...to name just a few.
