New Orleans Hotshots Jazz Band
Based in the East Midlands, The New Orleans Hotshots Jazz Band was formed in 1993 by trombonist Dave Harmer. There have been numerous musicians over the years, with members being replaced as death and retirement have taken their toll. Dave is now the only remaining member of the original band.
Nottingham-based trumpeter and vocalist, Dave Leithead, is the band’s most recent recruit.
Long term band members from the Derby area are ragtime pianist Joe Nutman, vocalist and bass player Al Harris and Kelvin Smith on clarinet. Holding it all together is drummer Keith Chaplin, from Barrow upon Soar.
The band will play a wide variety of traditional jazz numbers including rag, blues, spirituals and 1920s classic jazz tunes.
