We were treated last Monday to this fine line up of 'The Best Dixieland Band in Bolton', proudly also advertised as the only such band in Bolton.
It was a special night for them as they were recording the music for a new CD - 'The Dixie Beats - "Live at Eagley Jazz Club".
Unlike many of the local jazz bands, the Dixie Beats, led by the commanding figure of John Percival on trumpet, have a website that provides information on the band, pictured from left to right above:
Michael Grant, Karen Johnson, John Percival, Scot Johnson, Steve Allen and Richard Slater.
It was a great performance to an appreciative full house. They will be welcomed back any time.
Ypu are blessed with live jazz in your locale. I would much rather hear jazz live from lesser known groups than just listening clinically to recorded stuff. Jazz thrives on the atmosphere at the time.
