The Arcadia Jazz Band was born in 1994 and throughout our career we have been a support band to Humphrey Lyttelton a total of 9 times, as well as the likes of Kenny Ball, George Melley, Kenny Baker and the Don Lusher Band. We also supported Helen Shapiro during her last public performance.
We have also had the delight to have some professional faces as members within our band such as Kathy Stobart, Tony Roberts and finally John Critchison.
The band can be seen performing throughout the South West and can be hired for any event, whether big or small.
Annual performances for the band include 'Classics at the Castle' at Sherborne Castle, the 'Annual Charity Summer Fayre' at Forde Abbey and other charity events. Around these, the band performs at many private parties, whether on grand country estates or private gardens.
Arcadia Jazz Band is a 'little big band' consisting of trumpet, sax, guitar, bass and drums. They also have a guest vocalist available on request. The band plays a wide selection of music from all aspects of jazz, including jazz standards, blues, latin and funk. With a wealth of experience between them, they are sure to find something suitable for your event.
