Dr. Warren Ertle's Corpse Revivers

Dr. Warren Ertle’s Corpse Revivers (formerly "Hot Peppers") is an authentic eight-piece “hot jazz” band comprised of all-star musicians from Mississippi and Alabama. The band is committed to providing authentic performances of 1920s-1930s jazz, including Louis Armstrong, Jelly Roll Morton, Bix Beiderbecke, Irving Berlin, Duke Ellington, George Gershwin, and many others.

The band is led by award-winning composer and ragtime pianist, Dr. Warren Ertle. The Tuscaloosa-based musician and Mississippi native is an avid performer of ragtime and stride piano music as well as an active composer and arranger. Ertle’s passion for both early jazz and the American “Jazz Age” help to ensure that the band looks and sounds as if it stepped right out of the vintage recordings that it recreates. The band employs the traditional “three horn front” (clarinet, trumpet, trombone) of the original “Dixieland” bands, a myriad of vintage instruments, microphones, accessories, and principal vocalist, Jamie Shannon.
