The River Road Ramblers was formed in 2007 to provide a Dixieland Band alternative for the Tucson area. Today, the band has six musicians - cornet, clarinet, trombone, tuba, banjo and drums. We perform traditional New Orleans style Dixieland Jazz, as well as the West Coast Jazz style of the Lu Watters and his Yerba Buena Jazz Band. We are fortunate to have a large library of music which includes the books of Lu Watters.
