Shake Em' Up Jazz Band
In June of 2016, Shaye Cohn assembled an all-female cast of traditional jazz musicians to perform for Girls Rock New Orleans. These amazing women had a blast playing together and caused a stir from their first performance. Requests to play started pouring in, the band agreed they’d love to continue working together. Although Shaye wouldn't be able to continue with the band as a full-time member, Haruka Kikuchi joined up, bringing along her exciting Kid Ory-inspired trombone. Marla, Chloe, Haruka, Molly, Julie, and Dizzy have been playing together since that first performance, and have been thrilled to bring some other talented New Orleans musicians into the mix from time to time.
