Unitarian Universalist Church of Brunswick, 1 Middle Street, Brunswick
On Saturday, September 24th at 7:30 pm, the UU Church of Brunswick will present the first concert in its 2016-2017 Concerts for a Cause series. Portland’s State Street Traditional Jazz Band will provide a taste of New Orleans jazz of the early 1900’s. UUCB Concerts for a Cause are held at the Unitarian Universalist Church at 1 Middle Street in Brunswick and raise money for the church and local non-profits.
The State Street Traditional Jazz Band formed in 1989 and consists of a number of master musicians playing trumpet, trombone, tuba, banjo, clarinet, drums and piano. This is not Dixieland, nor or is it straw hat music. It is the authentic music heard at the turn of the last century throughout New Orleans and played by the masters like Louis Armstrong and the original Preservation Hall Jazz Band.
You do not want to miss this performance which delights audiences of all ages with pure joy. Audience members will be invited to join in a mardi gras parade when the band plays “When the Saints Go Marching In.” For extra fun, bring a decorated parasol to make the event even more festive.

Admission is $12 in advance; $15 at the door, available in the church office, at Gulf of Maine Books, or online at http://StateStreet.brownpapertickets.com.
