The Maple Leaf Seven, Vermont’s own traditional jazz band, provides "Dixieland" and classic swing throughout the northeast for jazz lovers and dancers. Maple Leaf Seven features traditional and contemporary interpretations of jazz standards on clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, piano, bass and drums.
Maple Leaf Seven was founded in 1978 by jazz lovers in St. Johnsbury, VT. In the succeeding 39 years the band has played numerous concerts, weddings, parties and anniversary celebrations. During the summer months Maple Leaf is a highlight of many Vermont and New Hampshire town fairs and bandstands, including Danville, Irasburg and Fairlee, VT and Bethlehem and Lisbon, NH. Winter engagements include annual appearances at First Night - St. Johnsbury and Mardi Gras celebrations in addition to concerts, dances and private parties. The band has traveled for performances in Portsmouth, NH, Cortland, NY, Hogansburg, NY and Cornish, ME as well as onto Lake Champlain on the Spirit of Ethan Allen. The 2017 performance season began with a “Gatsby” party at the Mount Washington Resort and Mardi Gras at the Kingdom Taproom. A full calendar of the band's 2017 performances and contact information for bookings is available at www.stjjazz.org.
