129 Eighth Ave.
(btwn. 16th & 17th Streets)

The Cajun is pleased to announce the appearance of The Manhattan Ragtime Orchestra every Thursday beginning September 9th between 8 and 11 PM.

The Manhattan Ragtime Orchestra is a brand new eight-piece group that was formed by world-renowned clarinetist Orange Kellin this year to play classic rags and other related forgotten American popular music from the ragtime era, approximately 1900 - 1920. It has already appeared, to great acclaim, for one week last May at the prestigious Bern Jazz Festival, where the audiences were delighted and surprised by the unusual sounds of what was once cutting edge popular music in the US.

The orchestra is comprised of some of the most outstanding and well-known musicians in New York City that specialize in vintage jazz. They all have made their names recording prolifically in various contexts and have extensive credentials playing major festivals, radio, television, motion picture sound tracks, and frequent worldwide touring.

The members are:

Skye Steele, violin, Jon-Erik Kellso, trumpet, Orange Kellin, clarinet, Brad Shigeta, trombone, John Gill, banjo & guitar, Terry Waldo, piano, Conal Fowkes, bass, Rob Garcia, drums
