When Carl Anderson’s band
begins to play, you know that
it’s going to be a real party!
- Larry Reents, fan

Well, yes. That’s the idea.
New Orleans jazz is supposed to be fun. It urges you to tap your toes and beckons you dance. So go ahead and get your groove on. We’re certainly not about to discourage you. After all, our job isn’t just about making music—it’s about showing our audience a good time.
Our traditional repertoire (you’ll probably recognize a song or two) combined with unique showmanship (a Dixieland jazz band with fog machines…who’d have thought?) offers a bold & brassy, suave & sassy ensemble reminiscent of original New Orleans jazz fare—one with its own distinct personality.


Carl Anderson and his New
Orleans Jazz Band played at
the 2003 Central Illinois Jazz
Festival. Our jazz fans were
very impressed with the
band’s high energy and
enthusiasm…[they are]
accomplished musicians!

- Maggie Parker,
Juvae Jazz Society

The reason I drive so far
[from Keokuk, IA] to play
with this band is that it is so
much fun!

- Craig Bullis, clarinet
