This is a old-style jazz band that also plays blues, song-book foxtrots and swing numbers along with other dance music from around the world, including waltzes, beguines, tangos and the odd polkas, All of their repertoire dates from the 1850s-1940s. In 2018 the band released the brilliant ‘Dust’ LP.

The band features: Ewan Bleach on saxophones, clarinets and vocals / Lewis Taylor on trumpet and vocals / John Kelly on guitar / Joplin Parnell on piano and vocals / Joe Dessauer on drums

There will now be a waltz dancing class led by Raymond Root every week before their show, with live piano accompaniment by Ewan Bleach. The class is at beginner level aimed at swing dancers but anyone with little or no couple-dancing experience is welcome. No partner is required. Dance class leader Raymond Root is an expert and former champion Ballroom dancer who has been teaching people the steps for many years.
