The Austin Traditional Jazz Society will close its 2021-22 season with a concert by the Silver Creek Jazz Band. Silver Creek has been together since 2007 and recently represented the Society at a special International Jazz Day concert at the Long Center.

The group is led by valve trombonist Dave Stoddard, an East Coast transplant who has been in Austin since 2001. He will be joined by cornetist Larmon Maddox, a prominent lead and soloist with many local jazz ensembles. Ben Saffer, another East Coaster, will play clarinet. Dan Augustine, a mainstay of the Second Line Jazz Band in recent years, will play tuba. Dan got his start as a symphony orchestra player in Nevada, but did well for mainstream jazz bands in Austin. Jimmy Vence is a fan of Django Reinhardt and an excellent guitar soloist. The rhythm section is rounded out by Rob Schmidt, a big band drummer who also does a great job with small jazz ensembles.
