Frog Island Jazz Band Brings Lake Pontchartrain to Ramsgate




 True to their New Orleans style, The Frog Islanders got Ramsgate Seaside Shuffle’s 2014 Festival off to a rip roaring start on the evening of Friday, 11th July. The hall was packed making filming the full band difficult. So in the YouTube below I focused on the brass conclave: Graham Reed (tuba), John Whitehead (trumpet), John Jeans (trombone) plus
Jimmy Hurd on clarinet.

Pure, rhythmic New Orleans music that got the festival off to a flying start.
