"Shades of Jazz" was created following a conversation 'in the early hours', between UK legends Jim Douglas, the late Pete Skivington and the not so legendary, Graham Smith. The band performs Dixieland, Traditional and Swing/mainstream styles pleasing all tastes. A performance at Pershore  Jazz Festival in 2016 was heralded as a musical highlight (witnessed by a number of Pump House JC members) and the Club have been fortunate to secure this booking.
