New Orleans Heat

New Orleans Heat

A seven piece band playing the old style New Orleans jazz in the style of the late great, Bunk Johnson, George Lewis and Kid Thomas bands. Our motto is "helping to keep the real jazz alive".

We travel extensively over the UK and Europe playing jazz clubs, theatres, hotels, jazz festivals, church concerts and private engagements.

We offer a choice of band size to suit any occasion. The regular seven piece line up is Richard Church cornet/trumpet, Dave Vickers trombone, John Scantlebury or Roger Bird clarinet/sax, Barry Grummett piano, Colin Bushell drums, Harry Slater bass and Alan Birkinhead banjo.

For small functions or background music we can take it down to a quartet or trio.

Whatever your need band leader Barry Grummett will be glad to give any help or advice.
