Born in the late ‘90s, the Humboldt All-Stars has been the premier Dixieland band in our area. Members of the group have played with countless jazz and Dixie groups, from the Hall St. Honkers to the Jewish Wedding Band to the College of the Redwood Jazz Orchestra.
Their primary gigs have been for the annual Mardi Gras church services at the Arcata Presbyterian and Arcata Lutheran churches, with a few other shows interspersed.
With our move to the concert hall, the All-Stars will get to really “open it up” and play some HOT jazz! You’ll hear the great tunes from the ‘20s, ‘30s and ‘40s.
Michael McClimon, cornet
Randy Carrico, clarinet and sax
George Epperson, trombone
Tim Theiss, banjo
Fred Tempas, tuba
Jonathan Claasen, drums
I hope there is room to dance…
