International producer Mitch Player kicks off the 2014 Spring Series of Nickel-a-Dance! A resident bass player at Preservation Hall since 2000, Player relishes his role in preserving Traditional New Orleans Music as well as connecting cities of Brazil to New Orleans through jazz through cultural exchange. “The cultures of Brazil and New Orleans are similar in that both are a “feeling” that can’t be explained,” said Player. “It’s a vibe you just have to experience for yourself.” Player has worked extensively with the Leroy Jones Quintet, has been leading his own group, The Players New Orleans Jazz Band, and done countless gigs at Maison Bourbon, Donna’s Bar and Grill, Snug Harbor, and other New Orleans venues.
