Back in Business March 8, 2021!

The Jackson All-Stars is back in business! The pandemic lockdown put a huge dent in our business but we're back! On March 8, 2021 the Jackson All-Stars Brass Band performed for the Hinds Behavioral Health Services 50th Anniversary Party! This was followed by three more performances in May - Opening Night at Trustmark Park, a wedding reception at The Cedars, in Jackson, and a wedding reception at Northwood Country Club, in Meridian! We appreciate the opportunity to perform! My volunteer big band Mississippi Swing!, along with the MCSB Community Outreach Band,  performed June 5th at the Renaissance at Colony Park! DJ Dave of the Jackson All-Stars performed at this year's Watermelon Classic on July 3rd!

The Jackson All-Stars!

          The Jackson All-Stars is a professional variety band based in Jackson, Mississippi. Featuring a full horn section and a distinctive New Orleans influence, the group packs quite a punch, specializing in a variety of musical styles including Jazz, Swing, Latin, Dixieland, Brass Band, and Party Rock. Add to this mix the group's unique chemistry and the result is an exciting live performance! The band was created when fans of Mississippi Swing! asked if we could assemble a professional, smaller version of the group!
          The audio samples on this site are "raw" live recordings from various performances.  Samples include: Dixieland, Ballads, Latin, Jazz, Swing and Rock / R&B / Funk.
