Alytus Dixieland (artistic director Dainius Platūkis)
The leader Dainius Platūkis
Striving to develop jazz music performing tradition by professional musicians in Alytus town, Dixieland musicians have been systematically propagating jazz music implementing the project „Alytus Performs Jazz“ („Alytus groja džiazą“) and organizing 6-7 concerts every year.
In 2005 they released their first album.
The musicians initiated the music evenings in the Town Park under the name „Piping returns to the Town Park“ in 2006. This action was recognized by citizens and surprised its guests, but the clerisy of the Alytus town revived their youth reminiscences.
