10 YEARS A CO-OP festival – Day 3: jazz/swing
Alligator Gumbo are an exciting 7-piece band playing jazz from the hey-day of the New Orleans swing/jazz era, in particular the ‘roaring 20s’, when music was raw and largely improvised with melodies and solos happening simultaneously which has now become defined as the New Orleans sound.
Performing extensively for over 10 years, Alligator Gumbo have made numerous appearances at prestigious international jazz festivals and clubs throughout the country, establishing themselves as firm favourites on the British jazz scene. The band continues to wow audiences far and wide with their good-natured mix of foot-stomping rhythms and toe-tapping tunes, and raucous singalongs. Guaranteed to be a show like no other and not to be missed!
James Paylor – Double Bass/Vocals
Mike Rudland Simpson – Guitar/Vocals
Chris Lloyd – Piano
Greg Surmacz – Clarinet/Saxophone
Chris Williamson – Trumpet
Tim Hurst – Trombone

The swing party vibe will continue after the band finishes with a dancing and DJ Elise Hopper from House of the Black Gardenia.
