Decatur Street Beat
"Serving North Carolina from the Coast to the Mountains"
Dick Sloane, Keith Longmire, Irv Eisen, Dan Cunningham
Decatur Street Beat has played foot stomping, toe tapping, New Orleans style Dixieland music since 2004. They have played for 4th of July picnics at the beach, Mardi Gras parties, birthday parties, local restaurants, a jazz festival in Virginia, a number of senior living centers in the Durham area and even some jazz funerals. The group is made up of experienced Dixieland musicians. They took their name from Decatur St. which runs through the French Quarter past Jackson Square, Cafe du Monde and Tujagues, the tuba player's favorite restaurant. They want to bring to central North Carolina what they feel is the happiest, liveliest and easiest music to listen to. You can take us home with you on our CD, available for just $10.
Dick Sloane, trombone, has played actively with a number of Dixieland bands in the Triangle area since 1982. He is the leader of the Fidgety Feet Dixieland band. Dick recently retired from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences in the Research Triangle Park.
Keith Longmire, clarinet and saxophone, is a retired band director from the Durham Public Schools,
having taught his last 15 years at Carrington Middle School. He has also taught in Columbus County and
Granville County Schools. Keith repairs, buys and sells woodwind instruments, so if you are looking for
a clarinet or saxophone, Keith's your man.

Keith also plays with Leon Jordan's Continentals Dance Band.
