directory of local bands
The style of the band is broader than the usual British "trad" band" although some of the repertoire has evolved from that. The music of New Orleans and the "classic" jazz of the 1920's and 30's (Louis Armstrong, King Oliver, Jelly Roll Morton, Fats Waller etc) has been broadened to include many songs from the "swing" era to more recent times. Tunes played by the likes of Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, Charlie Shavers and Nina Simone and usually part of the programme. The Band has featured in most of the Southwold Jazz Festivals and in 2009 will be appearing in "Exploding Brass" which attracts over 3000 people, alongside the Taverham Band for the 4th time. It was resident at the Tally Ho at Mettingham every Thursday for a local club night for more than 25 years, moving Jan 09 to the Buck Inn Flixton Suffolk & then in November 2012 to The Maltings Pavilion Prinhow St Ditchingham NR35 2RUour best move ever which is going from strength to strength every week.
