Dixieland Jazz is the style of music that was popularised by the Original Dixieland Jass Band (later called The Original Dixieland Jazz Band) when they made the first Jazz recording in 1917.
In the USA the term Dixieland is used for any jazz style that was being played prior to the nineteen forties. Here in the UK Dixieland Jazz has become interchangable with trad or traditional jazz
This dixieland band plays classic jazz standards, ballads and popular tunes of the early twentieth century, all played in a foot tapping danceable style, that would have been recognised by the earliest jazz musicians.

Dixieland Jazz is suitable for most occasions as background music during drinks receptions where they play quietly to allow guests to talk or listen (to the conversation or the band)
Dixieland Jazz is also good music to dance to or just to listen to for those who dont want to dance.

They also have waistcoats and "8 point" caps like the New Orleans bands for the very hot days. Equally they have matching cold weather gear for winter events.
