About

Dubbed “Baltimore’s Finest in Dixieland” by City Paper, we have been playing melodies from a bygone era in the Baltimore/DC area for over 15 years.  The music we play can be classified as Dixieland, New Orleans, or Traditional Jazz.  We bring plenty of youthful energy, mixing vocal and instrumental tunes to get people happy and dancing!  The appeal of this music from the ’20s and ’30s is broad, and that has allowed us to perform in all types of venues for a variety of audiences.

  • Weddings
  • Parades and marches
  • Swing dances
  • Corporate events
  • Mardi Gras parties
  • Burlesque and variety shows
  • Children’s events
  • Funerals and Celebrations of Life
  • Jazz festivals
  • Concerts in the park
  • Restaurants, cafes, bars, speakeasies, and nightclubs…

While making music over the past 15+ years we’ve become a Baltimore institution. After a more than 8-year run of monthly gigs in the Station North Arts District, you can now party with us at the 13.5% Wine Bar on The Avenue in Hampden on the last Friday of every month.  Get the most up-to-date information on other public gigs on our Facebook page or contact us to find out how you can have Sac Au Lait participate in your event.
