It's been a fantastic couple of years for us, from initial set-up of the band to present.

We cater for a wide variety of audience, including fun-days, garden parties, weddings, beer festivals, formal events and annual celebrations.

 

The Ragtime Revellers Band are based on the South Coast, in Christchurch on the borders of Hampshire and Dorset, enabling us to cover a wide area.

 

I formed the Band after leaving my brass band and concert band life behind, I have always enjoyed those iconic sounds of traditional classic jazz from being a youngster.

Bob Crosby and his Bobcats, Arty Shaw, Jack Hylton and his band, Jelly Roll Morton, The Fire House Five + Two and so many other such famous musicians had a huge impact musically on me. I love the sounds of traditional jazz from Dixieland to traditional blues, not heard much in modern society now. thankfully still accessible if you know the YouTube website.

 

It is with great pleasure we bring you the Ragtime Revellers. Happy foot tapping music which still echoes through time; Music for any occassion.

James
