The Castle Jazz Band was a Portland-based Dixieland jazz band, part of the "West Coast Revival" of traditional jazz music. The Castle Jazz Band started in 1944 and was led by banjoist Monty Ballou. The band released a series of recordings on its own Castle Records label. Cornet player Don Kinch claimed that one of these records, "Floating Down the Old Green River", sold more than a million copies. The band disbanded in 1951, and Ballou formed a new version of the band that performed in a club called the "Diamond Horseshoe".
