Hot jazz from the early years of Louis Armstrong, Jelly Roll Morton and Sidney Bechet through Fletcher Henderson, Duke Ellington, Count Basie and Billie Holliday to Louis Prima, Sonny Terry & Brownie McGee, Chris Barber, Acker Bilk and more!


Regarded as one of Australia's top bands playing in the hot jazz style, the Caxton Street Jazz Band has been entertaining audiences for over 40 years with their crisp arrangements and tight ensemble playing. Their broad repertoire spans the classic jazz years, from the 1920s to the 1950s, and includes mainstream, swing, trad/New Orleans revival and blues. Adding variety to the performances are the fine vocals of Bernice Haydock (piano/vocals) and Tom Nicolson (Trombone/banjo/vocals). John Braben (trumpet), Paul Williams (clarinet/tenor sax), Matty Eves (double bass) and Dave McCallum (drums/washboard) complete the quality line-up for this show.
