Richard Leach’s Street Band

Date: 8th June 2023

We once again present Richard Leach’s Street Band which started life in 2012 as a strolling jazz ensemble at the various town festivals in Richard’s hometown of Droitwich in Worcestershire. The infectious two-beat nature of the band’s rhythm is helped along by the inclusion of a sousaphone in the line-up and the band is fast gaining fans on the jazz club and festival circuit. A host of experienced professional jazz musicians make up the personnel of the band and Richard himself has picked up three awards for his musicianship during his career.
