Saturday, 6 October, 2018 (8:00pm & 10pm) “Evanescence at Snug Harbor”
Don’t miss this chance to welcome young lion Evan Arntzen to New Orleans. Our Soprano Summit-styled, dueling clarinet show will not disappoint.
This young man is one of NYC’s best reedmen specializing in early jazz. He works regularly with Vince Giordano’s Grammy-winning Nighthawks and just about anyone else you can think of that needs old-school clarinet and saxophone. This will be his first pilgrimage to New Orleans!

Evan Christopher at the 2018 NY Hot Jazz Festival
Sunday, 30 September 2018 (All Night)
I will be back in New York to participate in the 2018 NY Hot Jazz Festival. The annual program will be hosted by the McKittrick Hotel (not really a hotel) to celebrate early jazz in various ways. Some sublimely musical, some ridiculously campy, but something for everyone.
Around 4:15pm, I’ll be a featured guest in an ensemble directed by New Orleans-based trombonist, Charlie Halloran.
At 6:30pm, I have prepared a Soprano Summit-styled program with reedman Evan Arntzen.
Then, at the end of the affair, hang out with me for the late-night jam session.
