A six piece band, The Chicago Swing Katz play New Orleans Traditional Jazz and great numbers from the Swing era but with a bias towards Eddie Condon’s Chicago style Jazz.
Set up in 2010 by Jeff Matthews, the band has a conventional ‘trad’ line up - Trumpet: Pete Ainge; Trombone: Andrew Mackenzie; Clarinet/Sax: Jeff Matthews; Keyboard: Derek Harrison; Double Bass: Dave Margaroni; Drums: Mike Carnie/Bill Buck/Steve Foote. And when available, our highly talented young musician, Barry Edwards on guitar.
The Swing Katz play monthly at their Ironworks club in Oswestry, Shropshire, so if you should be in the area, be sure to drop by and enjoy the fun with their enthusiastic fans. Live jazz, great entertainment!
