Praise from the USA

Ray has received an e-mail from an Annie Pruitt with some very complimentary remarks about our web site and in particular the links page which they had found very useful in researching New Orleans Jazz in their community Centre.

So much so that Lilly, who is a student their wished to share with us a link to a collection of resources for bands and musicians which we have added to our links page and is included here also www.qualtrics.com/blog/musicians-guide-to-marketing Many thanks Lilly for passing this on for us.

We now have Two additions to the printed programmes, the return of The Windy City Weatherbirds and Paula Jackman’s Jazz Masters

Saturday 17th August

Windy City Weatherbirds

The Windy City Weatherbirds are a London based Trad Jazz group specialising in Swing and Dixieland music inspired by our love of Bobby Hackett, Jack Teagarden, Louis Armstrong, Muggsy Spanier and Wild Bill Davison to name a few!​

Formed several years ago during our time spent studying at various UK conservatoires they now perform concerts, shows and gigs and are also available for private function bookings.

Saturday 19th October

Paula Jackman’s Jazz Masters

'Paula Jackman’s Jazz Masters, is named as a tribute to Paula’s husband, Brian Masters - one of Britain’s finest jazz banjoists. There is no banjo in the band because Brian was irreplaceable. The, band is made up of great musicians and great friends - we enjoy our music and enjoy our time together. When a band has fun, you can guarantee the audience will too. We play Dixieland jazz from its roots in New Orleans through to its heyday during the British Trad boom.’
