Info provided by the Event Organiser
Chris Pearce's Frenchmen Street Jazz Band was initially formed in 2002 after Chris's first trip to New Orleans during which he and his brother in law, David Birt, stayed over a Jazz Club, the famous Snug Harbour, on Frenchman Street.
The band played gigs over the next few years with various personnel, enjoying great success at clubs and festivals in the South West of England. At this time Chris was a long serving member of the Blue Note Jazzband in Bristol where he had the opportunity of playing with many fine musicians including Acker Bilk, Humphrey Lyttelton, Bud Freeman, Wild Bill Davison and many more.
The Blue Note Years produced a string of fine recordings with a repertoire drawn from sources as varied as King Oliver and Bix Beiderbecke to Arlo Guthrie, Dave Brubeck and The Modern Jazz Quartet.
