The Tuxedo Jazz Band
Derek Galloway, Isabel Toner, Richard Knock, Brian Woods, Malcolm Horn, Gerry Owen
The Band was formed in 1993 by six experienced musicians, each having a desire to produce a band whose overall sound and technique was as authentic as possible to the original New Orleans bands.
You will find the band playing each Thursday at the Old Wallaseyans Club , 142 Grove Road , Wallasey. CH45 0JKF. Tel.0151 639 2832. Here they play to please the more purist fans of New Orleans Jazz. A major event worth a mention takes place on 8th November at Heswall Civic Hall when up to 300 gather for the 'Three Churches Together' for an evening of New Orleans style spirituals.
The musicians' pedigree covers a wide spectrum of experience, particularly their very good name in Holland and Germany, and the pleasure of having played with some of the originators of the music - Alton Purnell, Kid Sheik, Louis Nelson, and our own Ken Colyer. Still very much with us, Sammy Rimington (who hopefully will be playing with the Tuxedo during this year).
