Kanola Band brings together some of the most experienced and diverse  musicians in the midwest US jazz scene to pay tribute to the great music  and heritage of New Orleans. Dipping into the city's diverse musical  history including traditional Dixieland, groovin' zydeco, soulful funk  to blasting brass band second lines, audiences of all ages will leave  feeling just a bit happier than when they came. 

Kanola members have performed at some of the most prestigious  international music venues including Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola, Baryshnikov  Arts Center, Ronnie Scotts, Kennedy Center for the Arts and have  recorded and toured with some of the top jazz musicians/bands on the  scene including the Doc Severinsen Big Band, Etienne Charles Big Band,  Curtis Stigers, Henry Mancini Institute Jazz Orchestra, Tri-Fi, Knee  Deep Shag, Malaysia Philharmonic Orchestra and more. In addition to  being veteran musicians, they are also passionate music educators who  have held teaching positions at Western Michigan University, Purdue  University (Ft. Wayne), Kalamazoo College, Saginaw Valley State  University, and Jazz & Creative Institute. Their unique and engaging  approach to performing will leave all ages of audiences having fun  while learning about jazz, improvisation, music history, alongside the  rich history and music of New Orleans all while grooving in their seat  or dancing in the aisle.
