The Band in their 6 piece lineup, play jazz inspired by the music of the "classic" interwar years, with a creative energy that has become its hallmark. The band's skill, originality and phenomenal swing have excited audiences in clubs, theatres, dance halls and festivals throughout Europe, including those at the Edinburgh International Jazz Festival.
The musicians are all well known, experienced and highly respected members of their profession. Line-up includes trombone/guitar, clarinet/tenor sax, piano, guitar/banjo, bass, drums.
This is a jazz band that can respond quickly to the needs of the moment. Whatever the occasion, the emphasis is on entertainment: the band's good humoured, professional approach to performance has ensured a "user-friendly" reputation.
The music comprises an imaginative repertoire of material, ranging from "hot" up-tempo numbers to haunting ballads such as Where or When, You Go to my Head, and blues and “swingers” such as Shine, and Lady be Good.
|Newbury Show||The band were very professional, played exactly to schedule, and provided some lively background music for our stand. They drew quite a bit of interest from the crowds.|
|Wedding at Penrhos Court||The band were excellent & there have been many comments on how good they were... ( in fact, people were enjoying themselves so much that there was a small amount of “bribing” of taxi drivers outside to wait another half hour!!!)|
