Fire Hose 1 Jazzmen


This seven-piece band is based on the Firehouse Five Plus Two, a driving force on the American 1950 & 1960 Dixieland scene. Emphasis is on fun and good times without compromising the rehearsed arrangments which are based on the original recordings by the Firehouse Five Plus Two. Many of the selections feature mass vocals to give the event  a happy, ‘singalong’, feelgood factor.

Smaller versions of  the band are available on request.

Matt Palmer (reeds & vocals), Dave Leithead (trumpet & vocals), Dave Crossley (trombone & vocals), Malcolm Hogarth (piano), Mike Dexter (banjo), Richard Slater (tuba), Dennis Goodwin (drums)
