Hire a Trad Jazz or Dixieland Band for your event!

Trad (or traditional) Jazz includes Dixieland, New Orleans & Ragtime Jazz with early exponents including Louis Armstrong and King Oliver. Everyone knows music from this era with famous tunes such as ‘When the Saints Go Marching In’, Alexander’s Ragtime Band and ‘Basin Street Blues’ etc and it is difficult to not tap your feet to the rhythms that make it so popular.

Trad & Dixieland Bands are characterised by that special sound of a lead instrument, usually a trumpet playing the tune while other instruments of Clarinet and Trombone improvise around it. The rest of the band is a rhythm section which is usually Banjo, Sousaphone or Bass then Piano and Drums. Other versions of Trad and Dixieland do not have piano or drums particularly when strolling and so this style of Jazz Band varies in size and instrumentation.

Trad Jazz & DixielandBands are versatile and very popular. They are used for all kinds of events such as garden parties, wedding receptions, carnivals and product launches where the upbeat music never fails to make people smile.
