James McClaskey

& his Rhythm Band

The Rhythm Band is a dedicated to playing the jazz-inspired blues music of the 1930s, '40s and '50s. Drawing inspiration from a wide range of classic blues and jazz musicians and with a large repertoire of songs, ranging from turn of the century popular music and early jazz to electric rhythm blues and swing, the Rhythm Band delivers hard swinging, classic dance music. James McClaskey leads the group on vocals, electric guitar and alto saxophone, Adrien Seward plays tenor saxophone; we are joined by a rhythm trio of piano, bass and drums.


The Rhythm Band performs every other Monday night at the Apple Barrel on Frenchman Street, from 6:30 till 9:30. Check the calendar for this month's dates.
