About Us

The Bayfront Dixieland Band is based in Erie, PA¬†on the shores of beautiful Presque Isle Bay and Lake Erie. We’re a six piece band that performs early jazz in the traditional New Orleans style. Our front line of trumpet, clarinet, and trombone is backed by a rhythm section of piano, tuba, and drums. We have a full repertoire of standard dixieland tunes and we’re ready to meet your entertainment needs, whether it’s for one hour or for four.

The group was formed in early 2017 by the former members of the Parade Street Dixieland Jazz Band. We had decided unanimously to retire PSDJB in 2016, following the passing of our founder. A year later, driven by popular demand, we rejoined under a new name with a new look.
