The Sunset Stomp Jazz Band ~ an Indiana Dixieland Band based in Indianapolis, IN
In 2010 Robin Hopkins and Kathleen Miller co-founded a new traditional Dixieland group : The Sunset Stomp Jazz Band named after the often overlooked Louis Armstrong tune, The Sunset Café Stomp. The band has taken the jazz community by storm, playing at venues across the region and are featured regularly at the Jazz Kitchen in Indianapolis. Repertoire includes tunes such as the classic "Dallas Blues", Jelly Roll's "Sweet Substitute", Louis Armstrong's "Atlanta Blues" and "Little Girl" just to name a few.
Whether the audience be filled with young, lindy hopping steppers or west coast swingers, or even seasoned Hot Jazz listeners, this band delights one and all.
They were invited to perform for the Central Illinois Jazz Festival this past February and returned for the Jazz # 38 event in February of 2013. The band also performed at Grugelfest in Toledo, Ohio in the fall of 2012.
Our group is honored and excited to be invited to this year's edition of the Suncoast Jazz Classic in Clearwater Beach, Fl. The event is November 22 - 24, 2013.
Robin and Kathleen have been making music together for nearly 24 years and are not strangers to Toledo. They have brought their Great American Songbook show (The Hopkins and Miller Show) to the area on numerous occasions, performing at Zenobia Temple, the Strananhan (for Mary Lonseth Enterprises) and at Ragtime Ricks’ First Draught.
