In It To Swing It: The Dixie Ticklers
"Our vintage swing-tastic fun-time night presents... The Dixie Ticklers; one of the UK's most respected swing bands, both revisiting & transforming classic New Orleans music with a youthful glimmer. This hard working band is building a fierce live reputation within Jazz, the vintage scene and festival circuit's around the globe.
Old masters like Kid Ory, Sidney Bechet, Louis Armstrong and Jelly Roll Morton would surely have whooped & hollered at their interpretation of "Salty Dog", "I wish I could Shimmy like my sister Kate" and "Wild Man Blues"."

This six piece ensemble has put today’s date on early jazz, placing it alongside groove-based shuffles and fresh modern treatments whilst constantly staying true to the polyphonic approach that shaped the music of the initial pioneers such as Louis Armstrong, King Oliver and Jelly Roll Morton.
The band manages to bring in a deep scholarly understanding of New Orleans and Dixieland jazz without letting it undermine their enthusiasm for performing, and they manage to bring a contemporary London edge to the music while being true to its origins.
