Fog City Stompers
Traditional Dixieland Jazz Band
"The Fog City Stompers must be one of the most underrated and under-recognized traditional jazz bands in the Bay Area and in California. They capture perfectly the sound, rhythm, and exquisite arrangements of the bands of a Bix era. It is really like listening to a Bix band but without the limitations that were imposed on the recording engineers of the period. They played an impressive repertoire of classic jazz tunes (many not commonly played) and they also played some of Tom Belmessieri's own compositions. They gave us a wonderful afternoon of Jazz."
