The Cross Keys Tavern, at 19 East Main Street, in
Chillicothe, Ohio, is the home of the Goosetown
Astonishers, a ten piece dixieland and straight
ahead jazz band. They have played for 28 years
each Thursday night from 8:30 until 11:00 p.m.
which would put them in about second place as the
oldest dixieland band in continuous operation.
Sit in's are welcome in this Irish pub, with a
family atmosphere. Patrons have said they have been
to New Orleans, and never heard a band better than
this group. They have made several T.V. appearances
and are well known in this part of the state.
