Do you dance or just enjoy listening?  Then either way The Caxton Street Jazz Band is for you. The Band will be blowing up a storm on Sunday 11th July at the Kawana Community Hall Nanyima St Buddina when they present a once only performance of the music of Kenny Ball, Acker Bilk and Chris Barber.

The band was formed in 1977 and has performed constantly  in jazz conventions, pubs, clubs  weddings and private functions. The band's music is firmly planted in the hot traditional jazz of the early 1900s, but many other music influences are represented in their performances. Their music is drawn from the early Ellington,Armstrong, Bechet, Morton an Bix through to the mainstream jazz of the 30's 40's and 50's . In this one only concert the  music of the great British Jazz bands will be played...  This will be a concert to remember.  Kenny Ball,AckerBilk andChris Barber's music will be  relived  in their original traditional styles.

The Caxton group has always prided itself on having the best musicians and this present lineup has no equal. Bob Mair plays drums and washboard and is the nominal leader, Bernice Haydock on piano and vocals, Tom Nicholson plays trombone banjo and vocals, Dennis Ashton on bass and the  remarkable Paul Williams on reeds and the hot jazz trumpeter John Braben.

The 6 piece Caxton Street Jazz Band appeals not only to jazz aficionados but has a wide following from the general public who enjoy good music The band is more than a jazz band . It is formed by a group of talented musicians who enjoy playing and entertaining. This concert is too good to miss.
