Born: February 24, 1957 Primary Instrument: Trombone
Hello, my name is Darrell J. Walker. Born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana. Fled Katrina August 2005 and currently reside in Englewood, NJ, right over GWB.
Here is some info:
I am an AWESOME trombone player in the real New Orleans tradition--:) Been called the baddest trombone player in NO. Learned from the best--my daddy plays the trombone as well as I studied in college. I have played professionally for approx 30 years, I'm 49 years old. I've played mostly jazz (smooth, jazzy, Dixieland) and R&B but have also played with rock bands. I am extremely professional both in appearance and demeanor. I can both read and play by ear.
Played nightly in the French Quarter. Some bands I have played with in NO are:
New Orleans Levee Board Deacon John & Ivories Doc Paulin Brass Band Doctor Frank Minyard (he's the coroner of NO) Jazz Roots
Additionally, I have played both the Blue Note and Lincoln Center Outdoors with the Dirty Dozen Brass Band. I also played with Irma Thomas at Central Park SummerStage.
