Bill's New Orleans Jazz

At 16 he 'discovered' New Orleans jazz at Art College and with a group of like minded friends (he found an old banjo in his uncle's pub attic), he began playing what his classically trained pianist father called -'that *!!&%!'

A founder member of the Terry Treagus Jazz Band Bill has played all over Kent, in prisons, schools, dancehalls and jazz clubs as well as occasionally at private functions. Seven years on, he was asked to rejoin the local Treagus Jazz Sounds and he still plays with the same band (now called Dr Jazz) once a week at the Duke of Wellington pub in Ryarsh.

With the Ken Colyer Jazzmen, he travelled all over the UK, they also played many tours in East and West Germany and did a British Council tour of the Middle East. He played as a regular member of Steve Lane's Red Hot Peppers, Chris Watford's Chicago Feet Warmers with Charlie Conner, and deps with many other UK bands.

He runs his own band now - The Goin' Home Band whose personnel were all involved in some way with Ken Colyer and his unique style of NO jazz and they perform in clubs, hotels, parties, churches and village halls - full circle!

Copies of The Goin' Home Band CDs are available from him at 10 each.
