The Prairieland Dixie Band has been performing since the early 1980s throughout central Illinois (and Japan). Presenting "over a century of New Orleans jazz, and more" the material ranges from early 20th century dixieland to more contemporary renditions of tunes from the Dirty Dozen and Rebirth brass bands, with a lot of stops in between. The steady personnel for the last several years includes Brian Choban and Bruce Lane on trumpets, flugelhorns, and bass trumpet; Randy Huberman on reeds; Ron "augy" Augspurger on trombone; Corey Beirne on tuba; Roger Heerdt on percussion; and Eric "Bones" Bach on banjo.
