I am sorry to tell everyone that our good friend and
trumpet player, Roger Higham, has retired from playing.
We now work as a 5 piece on our club nights but inviting a guest trumpet to join us for outside and special gigs.

Established in 1984, the
Peninsula Jazzmen laid their first claim to fame by playing at the Liverpool
International Garden Festival, sharing
the bill with Acker Bilk and the Black Eagles. Since then, they have become established members of the
Merseyside jazz scene, appearing
regularly in the Wirral International Jazz Festival
with the likes of Digby Fairweather,
Ben Cohen, Duncan Swift,
Keith Nichol and accompanying vocalistes Sheila Collier and Beryl Bryden.
More recently they have had the pleasure of working with Roy Williams,
Jeff Barnhardt and, once again, Keith Nichol and “Spats” Langham.
Playing a light hearted,
‘easy to listen to’ variety of jazz, they
are always in demand on the Wirral and Merseyside and have ventured as far as
Blackpool in the North, Blackburn
in the East, and Whitchurch in the South!!!
The present line-up is
