The Hot Side of WW1! Long before jazz was cool, it was hot!

As WW1 was sweeping across Europe, a new kind of music called "hot jazz" was starting to sweep America.
Join the Florian Schantz Jazz Combo on a trip through the "hit parade" of the early 20th Century, including familiar standards of the time mixed with early Dixieland and other surprises.

The band is led by 14 year old trumpet player Florian Schantz. He has almost 250 performances under his belt across NJ, NY and Germany.

This promises to be an entertaining, energetic afternoon of great music.

Location: Piscataway Library, Kennedy Branch – 500 Hoes Lane, Piscataway, NJ 08854.

Audience: All ages.
