The River City Jazzmen – Live at Orange

1063c Ferry Rd, Ferrymead (access via Kite Lane)
Oranges Studios
$20 GA

If you’re a trad-jazz fan you may have seen or heard them play about town before, but not like this! The River City Jazzmen specialize in playing authentic Dixieland standard repertoire from the New Orleans and Chicago classic 20’s period as well as Tin Pan Alley hits of the 30’s & 40’s. The line-up boasts four teachers, an accountant and a businessman; all Cantabrians at heart despite none being born in Christchurch. This charming and charismatic posse will be recording and filming their concert live at Orange Studios in Ferrymead next week!

The River City Jazzmen include:
Neill Pickard – banjo, guitar & vocals & general hilarious banter
Tony Lewis – trombone & overall debonaire
Michael Fairhurst – trumpet, flugel horn & vocals & flair
Alan Hawes – clarinet & saxophones & that little extra at top of the band
Dave Pitt – acoustic bass & foot tapper
Jerome Raateland – drums & Dixie heartbeat

Seating for this exciting live recorded show is limited to 50 – so get in quick!
