ABOUT US

Alligator Gumbo are a unique, exciting and entertaining 8 piece band, playing jazz from the hey-day of the New Orleans swing era, in particular the "roaring 20s". Before the time of the jazz big bands, swing music was raw and largely improvised with melodies and solos happening simultaneously which has now become defined as the 'New Orleans' sound. Alligator Gumbo strive to keep this style alive in their renditions of popular songs from this unique time and place.

They have been playing together extensively for 5 years to rave reviews everywhere they go, including notable performances at international Jazz festivals such as Edinburgh, Birmingham and Manchester, as well as performing live on BBC Radio 3.

All in all Alligator Gumbo are able to provide a unique sound to any event and are guaranteed to get your party swinging!
