From my Website:
Few sounds are as distinctively American as Dixieland Jazz. From the smoke filled clubs of New Orleans' French Quarter and up the Mississippi River on the great stern wheelers, banjo players have spread a style of toe tapping good time music recognized the world over.
Today, there are but a handful of musicians to carry on that legacy. One of them, Jim Coston h ... as been sharing his hard driving banjo solos and homespun sense of humor with audiences around the world for over thirty-five years.
More than just a musician - Jim Coston is an entertainer. By combining traditional Dixieland Jazz with a selection of Broadway Show tunes, popular standards, classical favorites, novelty songs and just a touch of bluegrass, Jim brings the banjo into the new millennium with an eclectic evening of music and comedy sure to please audiences everywhere.
