Formed in 1962, The Frog Island Jazz Band plays classic 1920’s and 30’s New Orleans Jazz ranging from Jelly Roll Morton’s Red Hot Peppers, Johnny Dodd’s Blackbottom Stompers, Papa Celestin’s Tuxedo Jazz Orchestra and King Oliver’s Creole Jazz Band. In this YouTube they delighted Ramsgate Seaside Shuffle fans with Milenberg Joys
during the July, 2014 Festival.
