Steamboat’s musicians – Richard Elmes (Leader, banjo), Tony Richards (trumpet), Dave Corsby (reeds),  Martyn Rawbone (trombone), Gerry Birch/ Harry Cook (sousaphone), Dave Robinson/ Jimmy Tagford (drums) – will present a superb blend of music and movie comedy to make Silver Screen Jazz a sparkling spectacular for everyone.

Hot Jazz and Silent Screen Comedy
In Richard’s own words, “I first had the idea for this after seeing contemporary rock bands playing live with a video screen behind them and thought of bringing the two definitive genres of the Roaring Twenties together, namely, Hot Jazz and Silent Screen Comedy”.

Steamboat Jazz Band will turn up the heat with a blend of classic music and iconic film from the trailblazing decade universally renowned as the Jazz Age. The focus will be on standards such as Avalon, Doctor Jazz, Basin Street Blues and will present a rollicking montage of slapstick comedy from the Hollywood stars of
silent film.
