The Chameleon Dixieland Five

The Chameleon Dixie Five is the ideal 'Walkabout' Jazz Band using trumpet, trombone, clarinet, banjo and brass bass. They play a variety of Dixieland standards and Spirituals at venues as diverse as Funerals, Race Courses, Shopping Malls and Garden Parties. Both bands wear smart uniforms and carry their own P.A.T. tested PA systems if required. They also carry full public liability Insurance.

The band is run by Chris, who has been involved in jazz and swing music since he bought his first clarinet in 1955. He has regularly presented the jazz programme on BBC local radio stations in the South for over 25 years. Chris is currently a committee member of the jazz section of the Musicians Union, and regularly organises jazz festivals, theme cruises and jazz lectures for major leisure companies.

He also runs the Chameleon Swingtet, a 4-6 piece band which specialises in the much-loved swing repertoire of the 1930s and 1940s. This band is equally at home providing dance music for leading hotels and cruise liners, appearing in their own right or backing top National (and International) jazz stars at Festivals and in pubs and clubs. Chris also runs the Chameleon Dixieland Jazzband, a classic 6 - 7 piece traditional jazz band.
