Album Notes
Southside Aces perform jazz and popular tunes spanning over 100 years. They are a band known to serve up Lady Gaga or Amy Winehouse in a New Orleans jazz style, and then turn around and hand you a helping of straight-on Jelly Roll Morton or Duke Ellington.

Members of the Southside Aces have had the privilege of being mentored by musical greats who navigated the
traditional jazz waters before them, including Charlie DeVore and Bill Evans of The Hall Brothers Jazz Band, Uncle Lionel, Butch Thompson, Doc Severinsen, Henry Blackburn, Bob French and Benny Jones. There is no better education than playing jazz alongside such stellar talent.

The Southside Aces have performed in clubs all over the Twin Cities and the Midwest. They’ve been the house band four years running for The Best of Midwest Burlesk and have been featured at over a dozen national Lindy Hop and Balboa dance competitions in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Nebraska and Colorado. The Aces have been heard on MPR, KFAI, KBEM, and The Current.

What People Are Saying:

"The Southside Aces are extremely good news for the Twin Cities music scene. They really capture the old New Orleans tradition of 'Music for All Occasions,' and it's always a pleasure to see and hear them."
–Butch Thompson

“A serious strength of the band lies in Tony Balluff’s arrangements and the marvelous, relaxed rhythm laid down by Dave, Robert and Erik. And, the thoughtful interplay amongst the ‘front line’…represents high-level ensemble work that is rare in much of today’s jazz. How gratifying to see them serving (traditional jazz) up hot and heavy for a young, appreciative audience.”
-Charlie DeVore

“The Southside Aces work that old-time jazz feel, a loose swing that can take a joke.”
-Lightsey Darst,
