Modern Jazz Movement is a Louisiana jazz collaborative created by founders Dion Pierre (Bass), Frank Kincel (Drums), and Denny Skerrett (Saxophones). Since the 1990s, MjM has been producing quality straight-ahead jazz and Louisiana infused funky originals.
You're likely to have heard MjM or its members playing Festival International de Louisiane, New Orleans Jazz Festival, or one of the many other music festivals worldwide. If you've been around the Acadiana music scene a while, you might remember MjM from regular night's at the Lion's Tavern, Rodrigues, Blue Dog Café, Café 101, Café Cottage, Metropolis, Bisbano's Cellar Bar, Grant St. Dance Hall, The Rinky Dink, Sidebar, Cornwell's Café, Café des Amis, M's Café, or other Louisiana venues.
Founding Members & collaborators can be found regularly playing venues from NOLA to Lake Charles, Lafayette and surrounding areas.
MjM does both public and private functions and accepts booking requests using the contact form on this page. Live jazz for private events is a specialty.
