Band Info

The Louisiana Rhythm Kings - Perform the jazz of the 1920s and 30s, capturing the exciting sounds of New Orleans, Chicago and New York. Their repertoire features the music of Jelly Roll Morton, King Oliver, Louis Armstrong and Bix Beiderbecke. Influences of the American revivalists Muggsy Spanier and Bunk Johnson can be heard, as well as the bands pf The Btitish Trad boom such as Chris Barber and Acker Bilk. The band was formerly known as the David Jones Band and was led by David for over half a century. The Louisiana Rhythm Kings are now led by Simon Wyld, who performed alongside David for twenty-five years. The other members of the band are all well versed in the style, having played with many top UK bands and several are bandleaders in their own right.
