Richard Leach's 7 Stars of Jazz has a style reminiscent of the Alex Welsh Band, which from the mid- '50s to the early '80s, was Britain's foremost Chicago/Dixieland style band. The 7 Stars play an eclectic nix of Chicago, Swing and Dixieland with a hint of Vaudeville.

Line-up: Richard Leach (trombone); Chris Pearce (reeds); Gary Wood (trumpet); Ian Riley (piano); Ian Perry (banjo); John Fellows (bass); Graham Smith (drums).
