Our Music
The Poudre River Irregulars play Dixieland and New Orleans jazz – traditional hot jazz that traces its roots to the dance music of the early 20th century. Our friends at the Northern Colorado Traditional Jazz Society offer an expanded defition of the term "traditional" and remark, "this is joyous music, intended for dancing and having a good time, and it continues to attract enthusiastic audiences."

We can modestly say that we do continue to attract enthusiastic audiences for our music. Our musicians, both Regular and Irregular, are some of the best in the northern Colorado region, and we invite you to come hear us live, or check out our CDs.
