DX03
Authentic New Orleans Jazz

This lively traditional jazz band has been entertaining audiences in the southern region for over twenty years. Formed by clarinettist and leader Jack in 1987, the group performs at a wide range of functions. The quality, sensitivity and appeal of its traditional, New Orleans style of jazz makes it ideal for all age groups, particularly where dancing is involved or an upfront performance is required. The repertoire also includes blues and Dixieland numbers.
The full line-up is a six-piece, but the band frequently performs as a five-piece or quartet, depending on the client's requirements. The band includes musicians who play or have played with the likes of the legendary 'Ken Colyer Jazzmen'. They have played for the Lord Mayor of London and at various events for the legal profession at Lincoln's Inn. The band was recently complimented by the Lord Chief Justice at a Fulham Palace performance for having played the best jazz he had heard in the past forty years!

Jack has performed alongside the professional bands of Chris Barber, Acker Bilk and Kenny Ball on many occasions. His idol and mentor Monty Sunshine, a renowned clarinettist with the Chris Barber Jazz band, gave Jack the clarinet which he had used to record his revered golden disc 'Petite Fleur'. This has proved to be a fascination for Jack's audiences over many years, and Jack is renowned for his unique and powerful clarinet tone.
