Paul Eger

I began clarinet in high school but then let it go for about 20 years until my daughter began playing clarinet and opened the door for father-daughter duets! More time passed before I first heard Dixieland music.

I played with the Southwest Big Band and now regularly play with the Red Rock Swing band. But Dixieland is not in their repertoire. A year ago Paul Hjelmstad, Centennial Stompers pianist, asked me if I would like to try some Dixieland with the Stompers. I have enjoyed playing with the Stompers.
