The Dixie Ticklers are one of Europe's leading exponents of New Orleans, Dixieland and Trad jazz. Since meeting on the thriving London jazz scene, these exciting young players have enjoyed a busy concert, recording and touring schedule and have appeared at most of the major Dixieland and jazz festivals including Henley, Birmingham, Jazz Open, Croatia and Tarragona.
Led with exuberance by Dom James on clarinet – and setting a trumpet, clarinet and tenor front line off against a drums (or washboard for ultra portability), banjo and double bass rhythm team – the Dixie Ticklers represent the toe-tapping, livelier side of jazz entertaining with skill, style and charm.
There is also some lively interaction and rich vocal harmonies as this 6 piece, who list Woody Allen as one of their fans, bring to life the beloved sound of 1920s New Orleans playing a mix of well known hits and hidden gems.
