Barry Tyler’s Original Dixieland Jazz Band Inspired by those great jazz innovators The Original Dixieland Jazz Band: Barry Tyler’s unique Original Dixieland Jazz Band combines a formidable level of musicianship together with the fun and humour associated with Traditional Jazz. We are frequently told The Original Dixieland Jazz Band enjoys their music and it shows. Our preference is for the music of Louis Armstrong, King Oliver, Bix Beiderbecke, Jelly Roll Morton and other jazz legends. However we also know there are times when a familiar ballad is appropriate. Our music ranges from New Orleans through Dixieland to “Trad” played at a sensible volume, but we do not play any modern jazz. Band Personnel are:- Vic Bevan – trumpet, Bob Alcoe – trombone, Karl Wirrdan – Reeds, Binky Pollock – banjo, Paul Coulton – bass and Barry Tyler – drums.
