The band’s motto is “Happy Jazz” and this certainly reflects the members attitude to their music. They excel in playing the jazz classics but are not averse to playing old music hall songs etc. if that brings happiness to the audience.
Don’t be misled by their fun attitude for they are also deadly serious exponents of fine jazz. We’ve been taking them abroad for over 25 years and they have consistently delivered the goods to their dedicated followers and won over new fans each trip.
