On this occasion Dave had a 5 piece band which included
L-R Tom Kincaid, James Swinnerton, Frank Brooker, Bill Evans, Dave Donohoe
Trombonist, Dave Donohoe, leads one
of the best New Orleans style bands in the country
Dave believes that New Orleans music is a style rather than a repertoire, and therefore the band doesn't restrict itself to popular jazz standards. He will draw on any song that lends itself to a good melody and the right swing and rhythmic approach.
His band consists of handpicked musicians which includes such well known names as Teddy Fullick (trumpet), Frank Brooker (reeds), Jim Swinnerton (bass), Tom Kincaid (piano), Mal Horne (banjo) and Bill Evans (drums). For many years Dave lived on the Lancashire/Yorkshire border playing regularly at the Band Club in Delph and when playing in the North West he still draws on some of the musicians that played with him there including John Brunton (reeds) and Dave Podgson (trumpet).
