Welcome to my world of Traditional Jazz. The pages which follow are a tribute to the musicians who have dedicated themselves to playing the music of New Orleans and Dixieland in the North West of
the British Isles. Although I try very hard to ensure all the information about the bands and events are correct, please check with the venues concerned before setting out on your journey. - Fred Burnett.
Bootleg Band play the vintage sounds of the Cotton Club
and Birdland, the Gatsby era, the illegal drinking
haunts of prohibition Harlem and Chicago and countless
rent parties, with driving bass, explosive drums and
sophisticated witty vocals. They might not be your idea
of a 'traditional' jazz band, but they certainly play
traditional jazz, and the younger generation love them.
In this video they are not quite so explosive, and
the ending came quite swiftly as the passengers climbed
aboard and the band realised that the train was about to
leave them behind on the platform along with me!
