Kurt Bowermaster


I first played drums for money at age 14 for a local dinner theater pit orchestra. I've since performed thousands of gigs of all types including: pit orchestras, big band/swing, modern jazz, rock, blues, Klezmer, and my favorite - Traditional two-beat and four-beat Dixieland jazz. I have led my own dixieland bands since 1982 (my Party Gras Dixieland Band has been performing more than 100 times a year since 1998) and I also lead The Downtowners, a nine-piece swing band. I have played with many of the best musicians currently playing the jazz festival circuit. From 1996 to 1999 I produced The Greater Des Moines Good Times Jazz Festival and am currently producing the Good Times Jazz Concerts Series which features the best available traditional and dixieland bands currently touring.
