The Jelly Roll Jazz Band are a lively and dynamic traditional jazz band, originally based in the North East of England but now working regularly across the country. They have a diverse repertoire, ranging from New Orleans standards like ‘Bourbon Street Parade’ through to Disney classics such as ‘The Bare Necessities’, via some less conventional tunes – anyone fancy a jazz version of ‘My Heart Will Go On’? Whatever the occasion, the band are certain to bring smiles to faces and help the event go with a swing.
They usually play as a trio or quartet, and can easily adapt their instrumentation depending on a client’s needs and the availability of the musicians. Furthermore, they are able to play completely acoustically, making them ideal for outdoor events.
They perform regularly at everything from wedding receptions to birthday parties to exhibition openings. Recent engagements have included playing for the Tour de Yorkshire, Malton Harvest Food Festival and the ‘Monday Menu with Music’ at Scarborough Spa Complex.
