This is one of the most enjoyable party bands that can be booked in Dorset for weddings and events. They perform well known jazz standards, blues, and pop songs of the early 20th century in this jazz genre, lively music that makes the night go with a swing and appeals to all ages.
This Dorset jazz band like all acoustic jazz bands are not dependent on electricity, which allows these artists to present music for entertainment either inside or outside. The musicians play Trumpet, Clarinet, Banjo and Sousaphone (Tuba or Brass Bass)
This jazz band has many tunes on their playlist, mainly from
the vintage swing era including well known songs from the great American songbook like "All of Me", "Tuxedo
Junction", "Avalon", "Blueberry Hill", "Bye Bye Blackbird" and a few from
the revival era like "The King of the Swingers" all classics in their own
Most of their extensive repertoire was played at some time by top artists like Louis Armstrong, Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack who recorded the best songs of the era, however Acoustic Jass is not a covers or tribute band, they play in the New Orleans idiom not copying any one artist.

CD "The Summer of 17"
(that was when it was recorded)
One of the best Dorset jazz bands.
Traditional Jazz is the name applied to the earliest kind of music that jazz bands developed in New Orleans (it wasn't known as jazz then but was called hot music), it was very popular in the 1920s as a social music, jazz bands entertained for any function or social gathering, from being the entertainment at a picnic or for dancing in the dance halls.
Early live jazz was usually played by small jazz groups of up to seven musicians. It is an improvisational music where each player in the band re-arranges the tune as they go. If you hear the same band perform the same tune twice it shouldn't sound the same as the musician improvises to reflect the audience, the event and, how they are feeling on the day.
The original sort of jazz had a revival starting in the USA in the ninteen forties with jazz and swing bands spreading across the world and has continued to be a popular and entertaining music today. A particularly British version became known as trad jazz in the UK during the 1950s.
