Since our formation in 2003, the Uptown Rhythm Makers have been San Diego's most authentic New Orleans style traditional jazz band.

BOB ANDERSEN trombone and leader
JIM FIEDLER clarinet
HOWIE “WICKED FINGERS” NIELSON banjo
SUZANNE TRACTENBERG drums

It's hard to sit still when you hear the true New Orleans style of jazz with its exuberant energy, emotion and swing. Dancers and traditional jazz fans of all ages enjoy our repertoire of Mardi Gras tunes, spirituals and gospel songs, blues, traditional New Orleans jazz tunes, and the popular dance music of the 1920s and 1930s, especially drawing on the repertoires of the New Orleans dance bands.

The band is available for dances, club dates and private parties of all kinds, including weddings.
