Hatched in a dark corner of South East London five years ago by trombone ace David Lalljee and sousaphonist Tom Briers, the band also features the amazing gnarled vocals and banjo of Nick Singer, who has been playing this music for six decades. Throw into the mix the bold bluesy tones of trumpeter Titch Walker, unconventional clarinettist John O'Neill and some wonderfully silky crooning from David and the result is a unique onstage energy and rapport.

Line-up: Titch Walker(trumpet); David Lalljee(trombone/leader); John O'Neill(clarinet); Nick Singer(banjo); Tom Briers(sousa)
