Jason Jurzak sousaphone/string bass - was raised in a musical household with all forms of music surrounding him. His father, a well-known west coast traditional jazz trombone player and educator, instilled in Jason a love for the early styles of American music. A multi-instrumentalist and composer, Jason has traveled the world playing everything from reggae to ragtime, and his compositions have been aired on PBS, NPR, and radio stations worldwide. In 2007, his love of early jazz brought him to New Orleans where he has quickly become a popular musician in the Frenchman Street music scene and traditional jazz clubs around the city. He now works with a wide variety of New Orleans musicians–from Meschiya Lake to Bonerama–and can be heard most every night of the week. He has a twitter stream you can follow at
