Baby Soda! Developed by hoboes, perfected through science.
Baby Soda is on the forefront of a new movement loosely known as street jazz; with an eclectic set of influences ranging from 30’s era swing, New Orleans jazz, and southern gospel. The ensemble doesn't desire to recreate the past, rather they bring the style and joy of the music to the present.
Baby Soda is an adaptable and ever changing group made up of New York's finest musicians; featuring trumpet, trombone, clarinet, banjo and the unique one string box bass and Low-Boy Hi-Hat. The band has performed at some of New York's finest venues such as, Barbes, The Knitting Factory and the Jalopy Theater. In addition to their busy schedule of club dates, Baby Soda loves performing on the street and in the subway. This allows them to hone their skills and bring the music directly to the people. Both Pediatrics and Geriatrics agree, Baby Soda is the sure cure for the aches and pains of the modern world!
Baby Soda is a large family of talented musicians. Most of us play with other groups in the New York area and tour internationally as well. Any show on the Baby Soda calendar may have a different line up for the ensemble based on who is in town and seniority. This keeps the ensemble fresh, with different combinations of musicians playing the repertoire a little differently, keeping us all on our toes. It also gives each individual musician the freedom to work with other ensembles without adversely impacting the schedule or quality of Baby Soda performances.
