Crown City is described as “One of Southern California’s most popular Dixieland bands” by the Society for the Preservation of Dixieland Jazz (SPDJ).

Perhaps a review by the Temecula Jazz Festival says it best:  “Crown City blows that Dixieland sound right into your heart.”

Jazz Forum: “One of the best bands in the area.  This is a band that likes to play happy music and encourages audience participation.  They have a very varied repertoire.”

South Bay New Orleans Jazz Club: “Throughout the time the Crown City Dixieland Band was on stage, the listeners were held spellbound … Very professional … Standing ovations.”

Family Motor Coach Association (FMCA):  “You really gave our show the opening liveliness we wanted.”

Palm Springs Jazz Association:  “A great concert. Crown City brought down the house.”

Southern California Hot Jazz Society: “They are all still talking about your appearance.”

Wedding: “Your music made the reception.  People were dancing that I didn’t know could dance.  I heard nothing but raves.  You played something for everyone.”
