The Aston Neighborhood Pleasure Club
The Aston Neighborhood Pleasure Club brings the festive spirit of New Orleans jazz to A2SF this summer. Well-studied yet playful, this Ferndale-based acoustic ensemble is known for their hot horn lines, gritty guitar, and sultry style, equally at home in a club or on the street. The magic is captured on their album Live at How’s Bayou, a toe-tapping set that swings and struts in equal measure. Fans of traditional hot club-style and NOLA jazz will be clapping right along with them. Club members include Joshua James on sax and vocals, Erik McIntyre on guitar, Dave Vessella on trumpet, Jorian Olk-szost on bass, and Zollie Schute on percussion.
