The city's oldest active jazz musician — having trumpeted through the Great Depression and jazz in all its forms — may be in his 10th decade, but he's still a familiar face at festivals and with the Palm Court Jazz Band. The original member of the New Orleans Ragtime Orchestra headlines his own birthday party (with cake, of course). Tickets $20.
