High Sierra Jazz Band
 

The High Sierra Jazz Band was formed in 1976 in the small town of Three Rivers, located in
Central California at the entrance to the Sequoia National Park. The band has seen only a few
changes in its long history. Of the original six members, four: Charlie Castro, Bruce and Stan Huddleston
and Earl McKee, are still active members.

From the beginning the band has enjoyed enormous popularity; it enjoys the support of a large group
of jazz fans. An American Rag readers poll recently pronounced the High Sierra Jazz Band the second
most popular traditional jazz band ever, just behind the Turk Murphy band, ahead of the
Duke Ellington Orchestra.
