Lisa Kelly / JB Scott

Performance Calendar 2023

Welcome to a new and busy year of music! Enjoying a full holiday season of Christmas jazz and other performances that included the 76th Midwest Band Clinic in Chicago, our January calendar starts things off in a special big band concert with drum legend Danny Gottlieb at the 14th JEN/Jazz Educators Network Convention in Orlando, JB’s clinic there and at the annual FMEA Music Convention in Tampa, then a return weekend with our Kelly/Scott Quintet at Good Times Jazz & Dinner Club in Savannah, one of the best jazz rooms in the southeast! The Spring is packed with various performances, duo to big band, Mardi Gras events, judging and clinics, festivals, fundraisers, weddings, residencies, major concerts, that continue throughout the year. July 18 -21, we host the 5th Swingin’ Summer Jazz Camp for players and singers, 8th grade to adult. Dates also include UNF JE 1 big band directed by JB. We offer top-shelf, budget friendly, entertaining jazz from duo to big band, for any event and venue, including clubs, private parties, cruises, home parties, dances, and themed concerts. We specialize in the “classics” from the Great American Songbook to modern jazz standards, in styles of swing, ballads, Latin, bebop, blues, funk, pop. Our “JB Scott’s Swinging All-Stars” plays Chicago Swing/New Orleans style tunes of the 20s/30s perfect for that Mardi Gras spirit. Our 10-piece “Sophisticated Swing” and 18-piece “Florida Swing Orchestra” big bands are popular for holidays, concerts, patriotic events, weddings, and dances. As seasoned, world traveled guest soloists, studio musicians, and artist/clinicians, we offer educational jazz clinics, workshops, serve at jazz camps, teach applied trumpet/voice lessons and music theory tutoring. Booking Inquiries: 904-703-8687! Happy 2023!

Feat: JB Scott/tpt, Bill Prince/clar, Lisa Kelly/vox, Ken Calhoun/banjo-gtr, Rick Ravelo/bs, Rick Kirkland/dms
Bring your beads & masks to celebrate Mardi Gras with this popular group of world-traveled pros, performing top-shelf Chicago Swing/New Orleans style jazz from right off Bourbon Street, in fun, entertaining, and spirited fashion. Led by flamboyant virtuoso trumpeter, JB Scott, former musical director of the legendary New Orleans group, the Dukes of Dixieland, the group presents a most pleasing repertoire of ‘classic’ 1920’s to mid-1940’s jazz from Rags to St. Beat grooves, Gypsy to “hot” jazz. Favorites from Louis Armstrong’s Allstars, Lois and the Hot 7, Pete Fountain, Original Dixieland Jazz Band, Bob Crosby & the Bobcats, and other popular historical New Orleans Trad(itional) and Chicago style groups. Influenced also include by Clark Terry, Ruby Braff, Eddie Condon, Bessie Smith, Ella, Billie Holiday, and Peggy Lee. JB is joined by 2 other Jacksonville Jazz Festival “Hall of Fame” Inductees: multi-instrumentalist Bill Prince on clarinet and 8-time Down Beat Magazine award winning jazz vocalist Lisa Kelly (2017, 2008, 2013). The groovin’ rhythm section includes banjo/guitarist singer Ken Calhoun, swingin’ bassist Ricky Ravelo, and famed former Navy Commodores drummer Clyde Connor.
