This popular band is welcoming in the New Year for us promising us an enjoyable and fun evening. With their true New Orleans sound and wonderful musicians, they are always well received. "Baby Jools" is part of the new youth movement in old school New Orleans jazz. The Gloucester musician spent much of his time as the drummer with Jim McIntosh and Max Collie, but the Jazzaholics have now been together for several years. Julyan has taken over the leadership duties since Jim moved to Germany.

Denny Llett (trumpet); Mike Owen (trombone); Karl Hird (reeds); Brian Mellor (banjo/guitar); Jim Swinnerton (bass); Julyan 'Baby Jools' Aldridge (drums and leader).
