From the Album: Bridge City Dixieland Jazz Band Release year: 1969
The Bridge City Dixieland Jazz Band was one of the many good things to come out of the Canada's Centennial celebrations. Just for fun, six musicians donned boaters and candy-striped blazers and played on a float in Saskatoon's annual Travellers' Day Parade. Soon bookings started coming in and the band was firmly established in the Saskatoon area.

---- About the Saskatchewan Music Project.
From about the time period of the late 70's to early 90's, various local Saskatchewan musician groups ranging from choir music to polka and more all had records, cassettes, and 8-tracks made for a local audience. All these years later most of this music has been forgotten and available only through bargain bin thrift stores. Even so, there is starting to become frequently less available all the time.
This channel is dedicated to recording this music over to digital and uploading it to digital platforms to preserve them for future generations. While the title specifically states Saskatchewan, it will also feature other local artists from across Canada and the United States.
