New Orleans Heat

It’s now twenty years since we lost one of the finest New Orleans revival style clarinetists, Chris Blount, but The Blount Band which became New Orleans Heat have kept the music going with few changes of personnel. Surprisingly, it is four years since we had the pleasure of hearing this band at our club but here they are again with only one change from that session, Brian Bates instead of Will Robinson on trumpet. Roger Bird and Dave Vickers complete the front line with Barry Grummett, Alan Birkinhead, Harry Slater and Colin Bushell making up the band. Not to be missed!
