About: The Toll House Jazz Band (THJB) is a traditional-style, Dixieland jazz band from Columbus, Ohio and the surrounding area. We play the great traditional jazz tunes of Jellyroll Morton, Bix Biederbecke, King Oliver, and many others with emphasis on tunes from the 1920s. The band was formed in 1989 and has played at local and regional venues, and at festivals such as the Bix Beiderbecke Memorial Festival and the Coon-Sanders Festival. The band has also played three European tours in the last few years including the Dresden Jazz Festival and a formal concert in the Gewandhaus in Leipzig. In addition to our regular traditonal jazz performances, the band performs as the "Dixie Saints" for churches in the central Ohio area presenting church hymns in Dixieland style. The band leader is our banjoist, Mike Evans.
Information: Linda is the one who keeps the Toll House Jazz Band organized. She schedules rehearsals, books gigs, and makes sure the band guys show up wearing outfits that look similar. Among her many distinctions, she is the "Official Band Sweetheart of the Buck Creek Jazz Band." If you'd like to know what one has to do to become the official band sweetheart of the BCJB, check with Jim Ritter. For a good (musical) time, call Linda Evans at (740) 881-4936.
