The Dukes Of Dixieland

The story of the Dukes of Dixieland is, in fact, a chapter in the broader saga of one of New Orleans' many musical dynasties, that of the Assunto family, which can boast at least three generations of musicians to its credit. Jac Assunto was one of the first jazzmen to record in New Orleans, documented in 1925 by Ralph Peer as a member of the Midnight Serenaders. The Dukes were formed by his two sons, Freddie and Frank, in 1949, and during the '50s they rose to national prominence, first as a feature of the Bourbon Street scene at the Famous Door, then as a touring act when they traveled to Chicago and Las Vegas in 1955. By this time, "Papa" Jac had joined the band, and the following year, the Assuntos made Las Vegas their headquarters as they prepared to take the country, and the world, by storm. Between 1956 and 1966, the band made numerous recordings, including several with Louis Armstrong, and began an international touring schedule that covered most of North America, Japan, and the Far East.

The death of Freddie Assunto in 1966 brought the Dukes back to New Orleans in 1967; six years later Frank passed away, ending the predominance of the family in the band, as well as its first phase of development. Still, the Dukes continued on with a new lineup, and in the late '70s, they established themselves as a tourist attraction once again in their own penthouse nightclub atop the Montleone Hotel in the French Quarter. In the mid-'80s they underwent further personnel changes but continued to hold forth well into the 21st century. They held forth at Lulu White's Mahogany Hall (the former Paddock Lounge), located on Bourbon Street. In 1991, Mahogany Hall was sold and closed, and the Dukes moved to the Steamboat Natchez at the Toulouse Street wharf in the French Quarter, where they have been performing since. They received their first Grammy nomination in 1999 for Gloryland, a collaboration with Moses Hogan's New Orleans Gospel Choir. In all their various manifestations, the Dukes of Dixieland have offered listeners a snappy, toe-tapping style of jazz that is at once musically and visually entertaining. The four-disc Timeless appeared in 2006, an anthology of songs and tunes from the 16 albums the group recorded between 1974 and 2006. The genre-bending When Country Meets Dixie appeared in 2012, featuring the group in a country/jazz fusion with the Oak Ridge Boys. ~ Bruce Boyd Raeburn

I pretty much like most music, Dixieland jazz has always been my favorite. You can't help moving your feet when its playing. Iwonder why you don't hear it much any more even in N.O. I had alll of the Firehouse Five Plus Two albums. Don

In 1948/49 I played trumpet with Redemptorist High School . Papa Jack was my teacher, When we marched in the Mardi Gras parades, Freddie and Frank marched with us. They were great....and sadly missed..Tom

My first purchase of a Dukes alblum was in the 50s and I have loved their music ever since. It sure beats the noise of today.

One of the most memorable nights of my life was the famous Dixieland at Disneyland show in 1962 with The Dukes of Dixieland, Louis Armstrong, the Firehouse Five plus Two, Teddy Buckner and a couple other bands I can't remember. Grand finale with all the bands floating down the river on rafts individually playing their hits, then a finish on the showboat with everybody playing When the Saints Come Marching In.

My favorite Dukes of Dixieland combo is the group of the early '60s that included Herb Ellis on guitar, Jim Atlas on bass and Charlie Lodice on drums
