A Jazz Band

At the summer ball, the guests were greeted with a glass of champagne while "A Jazz Band" played in the background.....

"A Jazz Band" led Santa Clause and the Celebrity to switch on the Chrismas lights....

Have you noticed how all the reports of summer fetes list with un-erring accuracy all the stalls and who manned them, who made the tea, the fact that there was a suprise visit by "A. Corn And The Little Oaks Agricultural Band" who all get a mention, but at other times "A Jazz Band" played, even when we get our picture in the article.

Here we are, "A Jazz Band", you've found us, four musicians with tens of years of experience under their belts playing traditional jazz in the popular entertaining style that would still be recognised by the musicians of New Orleans who invented it in the first two decades of the twentieth century.

"You played for our party/wedding/anniversary, I can tell it was you because of the striped blazers and boaters"

"I haven't seen you since you played at my daughters wedding"

The above are two statements that "A Jazz Band" hears many times whether we were there or not, maybe it was an imposter and not really "A Jazz Band".

The surprising thing is that "A Jazz Band" is one of the few Jazz Bands that has a uniform of matching striped blazers and boaters with matching bands.

When you searched for "A Jazz Band" it may have amazed you that so many jazz bands have names, but you have found us anyway, and as you have seen us in so many places, you know we are a jolly smiling bunch, wearing striped blazers and boaters, playing the old style, traditional or New Orleans jazz ready and willing to entertain you.
