Savannah Jazz Band

We once again welcome back one of our favourite bands who have been regular visitors to the club for many years now.
The Savannah is without doubt one of the most popular UK bands around. With their talent for satisfying listeners and dancers alike they have built up a truly international reputation at major festivals in the UK and overseas.
The band’s driving and exciting New Orleans style attracts large audiences whenever they play. Their many fans follow them from festival to festival and turn out devotedly to see them at regular venues in the UK. This tremendous support is very much appreciated by the band. However, the band’s reputation has not suddenly emerged; it has been hard earned and well-deserved for over 3 decades. Formed in 1979, The Savannah started their swinging Thursday night sessions at the Station Tavern at the railway station in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, which has now come to an end.
Richard Church (trumpet), Brian ‘Sam’ Ellis (trombone), Roger Myerscough (reeds), Chris Marney (banjo), John Meehan (drums & leader), Tony Pollitt (bass).
