This is a six-piece combo playing a mixture of boogie, latin, popular swing and show tunes including jazz classics in a New Orleans style. There were three things born with the band, the name BOURBON STREET BEAT, The Nelson Jazz Club and the Nelson Jazz Festival.
The Band auditioned for New Orleans and the California Redwood Coast Jazz Festivals and were accepted in both places. WWOZ radio New Orleans broadcasted a BOURBON STREET BEAT programme at their festival time and the Band appeared LIVE at the California Redwood Coast Jazz Festival.
Their latest highlight in 2016 saw them entertaining on the P&O cruise liner ‘Pacific Pearl’ and with great feedback they have been asked to return.
