Venerable Jazz Rockers Squirrel Nut Zippers Bring “Jazz from the Back O’ Town” Show To Buffalo

Friday, November 10 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Iconic Jazz Rockers Squirrel Nut Zippers (SNZ) will be taking fans on a magical, musical voyage to the birthplace of Jazz as they present “Jazz from the Back O’ Town” – a love letter to the prodigious New Orleans neighborhood known simply as the “Back O’ Town.” The show will be hitting the Buffalo State Performing Arts Center on November 10 and this devilishly-entertaining event, will explore the late 19th Century through the Roaring 20s NOLA Jazz scene as the Zippers provide a delightful view into this mystical era with reverent, yet exciting, renditions of such seminal classics as Jelly Roll Morton’s “Animule Ball,” Louis Armstrong’s “Back O’ Town Blues,” and many others.

During the “Jazz from the Back O’ Town” show, the Multi-Platinum band will also perform favorites from their own catalog, adapted and arranged to more closely echo the sounds of 1920s New Orleans. Additionally, SNZ founder Jimbo Mathus will lend his humorous, insightful musings on both the musical history of one of America’s most fascinating cities and the stories and inspirations behind many of the Zippers’ most beloved songs.
