Chelsea Reed and the Fair Weather Five is a New Orleans jazz and blues band specializing in music from the 20s and 30s. This band hails from Philadelphia and all members are Boyer College of Music students or graduates from Temple University. The band is led by Miss Chelsea Reed and alongside her as always is the Fair Weather Five: Chris Oatts on soprano and alto saxophone, Noah Hocker on trumpet, Jake Kelberman on guitar, Joseph Plowman on bass and Austin Wagner behind the drums. Their music embodies the feel and history of jazz music in the South, drawing upon early jazz artists such as Fats Waller, Bessie Smith, Louis Armstrong and Billie Holiday. Playing both obscure gems and timeless classics, Chelsea Reed and the Fair Weather Five strive to bring the humor, playfulness and raw grit of New Orleans jazz to every audience, no matter the city.
