The Dixie Strollers are a young seven piece jazz band in the Dixie/New Orleans style of the 1920s-50s, made up of students from two of the top music conservatories in London. Between them the band have played in all of the major London jazz venues including Ronnie Scott's, The Vortex, and the 606 Jazz Club, as well as at the London Jazz Festival, Royal Albert Hall and many others. Influenced by Alex Welch, Kid Ory, Sidney Bechet, Jelly Roll Morton and Louis Armstrong, and boasting a front line of trumpet, clarinet and trombone as well as a four-piece rhythm section, the Dixie Strollers are guaranteed to get you on your feet!
We regularly play public gigs as well as private functions in London and around the UK. If you're interested in booking the band, get in touch!
