Alligator Gumbo are a 7-piece swing band from Leeds. Playing jazz from the hey-day of the New Orleans swing era, in particular the "roaring 20s", where Jazz music featured instruments such as the violin, clarinet and accordion particularly amongst the Creole musicians based in the city who helped to define this style.
Before the time of the jazz big bands, swing music was raw and largely improvised with melodies and solos happening simultaneously which has now become defined as the 'New Orleans' sound. Alligator Gumbo strive to keep this style alive in their renditions of popular songs from this unique time and place.
