"Jazz / Blues / Swing - Simply the Best"
Mike Carnie and his band bring you the finest entertainment with the exciting sound of jazz, all over the North West of England. The six piece band, comprising of Derek Harrison, Dave Margaroni, Mike Carnie, Jon Critchley, Mike Hayler and Laury Cooper are one of the finest Traditional outfits around today. Their mix of Dixieland, Blues and Swing capture audiences wherever they go, and the versitility and humour from Derek Harrison (piano) with his style of Louis Armstrong and Fats Waller is something to be seen.
The band are also engaged in private functions of all kinds offering soft music during dinners and rounding off the evening with their free swinging Dixieland style. Parts of the band have travelled over to New Orleans and have played with big names including Jack Maheu, The Silver Leaf Jazz Band and Harry Connick (Senior) at The New Orleans Jazz Festival.
For any enquiries or to obtain a CD of the band please have a look at the "Contact" page.
Hope to see you sometime soon - Mike Carnie
