The New Black Eagles ripped the rafters off the Community Arts Center in Pennsylvania last year. This year's encore will be at Tri-State Jazz Society's larger hall in New Jersey, the Fellowship Hall of Haddonfield United Methodist Church.

The New Black Eagles have been together for 41 years and play the traditional music of New Orleans. According to trombonist Stan Vincent, "we present our interpretation of early black jazz as it was played from, say, 1900-1938." Indeed, they take their name from the Black Eagle Social Club, which was a black organization in New Orleans at the turn of the century.

Renowned for their seamless ensemble work, they have appeared just about everywhere great jazz is played, including the Newport Jazz Festival. The NBEJB has an uncommonly large repertoire and will feature material by Armstrong, Oliver, Bechet, Morton and Ellington as well as other early masters of the form.

Tony Pringle is a founding member of the NBEJB. Originally from Liverpool, England, he's been playing cornet in traditional jazz bands since the 1950s. He was with Tommy Sancton's Black Eagle Jazz Band before the NBEJB, the New Climax Jazz Band in Leicester, UK, and the Druids Jazz Band at The Cavern in Liverpool in the early 1960s.

Bob Pilsbury, pianist and vocalist, has been with the band since their first gig as the NBEJB on the Peter Stuyvesant in Boston Harbor in 1971. A solid ensemble player, he solos on challenging Jelly Roll Morton pieces with a deceptive ease.

Trombonist Stan Vincent has been with NBEJB since the Peter Stuyvesant gig in 1971. He put together his first jazz band as a junior high school student in Newton, MA, played with concert bands and symphony orchestras at Brown University and in the U.S. Army, and has been associated with many other trad bands of note, including Tex Wyndham's in the 1960s.

Billy Novick joined NBEJB on Thanksgiving 1986 and plays alto saxophone, clarinet, and sometimes soprano saxophone. He is a full time musician who writes music for TV and movies, teaches, does studio work, and is known for his duo work with Guy van Duser.

Peter Bullis has played banjo and handled the management and booking for NBEJB since 1971. He played and recorded with the Tommy Sancton BEJB in 1971. He played with, recorded with, and managed the Indian Chiefs Jazz Band from Dartmouth College in the 1950s and performed with the Salty Dogs South in Raleigh, NC, in the 1960s.

Barry Bockus has been playing with the band since he helped them out in Florida several years ago and is now the regular NBEJB bassist. He played with Peter Bullis in the Dartmouth Indian Chiefs in the 1950s.

C.H. "Pam" Pameijer has been playing drums with NBEJB since 1971 and also played with Tommy Sancton's BEJB. Before that he played with the Windy City Jazz Band, the Rail Road City Seven, and his own group, the Fair Town Jazz Band in The Netherlands.
