Prohibition Orchestra



Prohibition Orchestra was formed in 2018 in Graz, Austria.

 Composed of the leader, arranger and pianist Nobuo Watanabe and his cherry-picked 9 young musicians from 7 different countries, this international 10 piece orchestra authentically performs Hot Jazz from the Prohibition era, 1920-1933. Their repertoire ranges from the hot numbers from Fletcher Henderson and Duke Ellington, as well as the sweet melodies of George Gershwin and Cole Porter, to the European hits from the era.
