Dutch Swing College Band & Mrs. Einstein – Bourbon Street Parade
Burghausen (Germany), 2007 March 17
A popular saying goes: “There are two kinds of music, good music and bad music”. For the true fan of good traditional jazz music the choice is simple, because there is only one Dutch Swing College Band. The Dutch Swing College Band started out as an amateur-college combo on liberation day (1945, may 5th) and through the years it has grown into a worldfamous jazz ensemble that has toured all five continents to much acclaim. The DSC played a prominent role during the post-war period. At the time many youngsters fell under the spell of the original Amerian music: jazz. The band, which has existed for more than sixty years, has given concerts all over the world and the sounds have been registered on practically all types of sound recordings since 1945. The band also appeared frequently on TV and in film productions. Through the years many big names in jazz music were backed by the DSC, from Sidney Bechet, Joe Venuti and Rita Reys to Teddy Wilson. The expression “The Haque School” was born out of the big influence of the DSC on the Dutch jazz scene. Deservedly many jazz fans consider the DSC almost as an institution. Fortunately, the Dutch Swing College Band has never presented itself as a show or glitter orchestra. The musicians have always succeeded in capturing the public’s attention with their excellent jazz performances. Cheap show tricks were absolutely out of the question. In 1960, the DSC turned professional. Throughout the music’s evolution and in spite of quite a number af personnel changes (and contary to many imitators) the DSC remained the showpiece of Dutch traditional jazz music. Bob Kaper heads the current line-up, in succession to Frans Vink Jr (1945-’46), Joop Schrier (1955-’60) and Peter Schilperoort (1946-’55 and 1960-’90). From the very beginning the most striking characteristic of the band has always been its unique and recognizable sound. In other words, no recordings of American virtuosos were ever copied: the DSC created their own interpretations, arrangements or compositions. An entirely personal approach. The current line-up of the highly experienced band has proved that the old name Dutch Swing College Band still guarantees professional performances of traditional jazz music of international standard!

Could I carry a decent sized pocket knife while walking up and down bourbon street? Going into bars and shops? Laws down there? Never been there before.
as long as the blade is not longer than 4 inches it’s not a problem.
but wearing it say on your belt, in a holder is not recommended as the policemen/bouncers may ask you to leave it at home or in your car.
so carry it if you want but keep it in your pocket or out of sight.
Anything like the one used by Golden Corral, maybe?!

Way down yonder in New Orleans
In the land of the dreamy scenes
There’s a garden of eden…you know what I mean
Creole babies with flashin’ eyes
Softly whisper their tender sighs
Then stop….won’t you give your lady fair…a little smile
Stop..ya bet your life you’ll linger there…a little while
We’ve got heaven right here on earth
With those beautiful queens
Way down yonder in New Orleans
You’re gonna find heaven right here on earth
With all them beautiful queens
Way down yonder in New Or…..
I goin’ down yonder to New Orleans
It’s way down yonder in New Orleans
