Band Profile 

 

Established nearly twenty years ago The Martinique Jazz Band fast became one of the top jazz bands on the local scene. They have played at many of the premier venues both in the UK and on the continent, and played with many of the top stars in jazz. The annual German tour has always gone down well with both the musicians and the audiences.
The Band has also played in Fritzels on Bourbon Street in New Orleans during the Jazz and Heritage Festivals. After being invited to play at one of the Mayors charity presentations, the whole band were declared

" Honorary Citizens of New Orleans! "

The Band refuses to be labelled as a "Dixieland" band!
They take pride in playing many types of jazz, from King Oliver to King of the Swingers, from Beiderbeck to Brubeck, from Louis Armstrong to Louis Prima through Louis Jordan.
The musical repertoire is as broad as it is long. Many of their numbers will be recognised by even non-jazzers but they also continue to play lesser-heard obscurities because of their unique musical value. The play-list includes, Old Classic Jazz, Blues, Show Tunes, Sinatra and some good old swingers but the aim to send people home happy.
