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  

Roger Higham – Trumpet / Cornet,  
Ian Robertson – Trombone,  
Dave Dixson – Clarinet / Soprano & Alto Sax (leader),
Mike Swift – Banjo / Guitar / Harmonica, 
Ali McDonald – Bass Guitar / Guitar
Brian Woods – Drums.
