Belying its name, this versatile band doesn’t play just Dixieland jazz. The Dixieland Express concerts take the form of a musical “whistle stop” journey through a wide spectrum of styles. The three-piece front line and three rhythm line-up allows them to move from the New Orleans classic period through swing, urban blues and mainstream to their own arrangements of compositions by some of the more modern jazz greats. This brings a freshness and variety to their constantly changing programmes. Rest assured - whatever is played, it will be with enthusiasm and feeling.
Line-up: Goff Dubber Reeds, Pete Rudeforth Trumpet, Mike Hogh Trombone, Tim Huskisson Piano, Peter Morgan Double Bass, Martin Guy Drums
