Biography

The St. Louis Strollers came together in London in early 2011 with their sole aim being to produce their own modern take on traditional 'vintage jazz'. The musicians are some of the finest jazz players in the London area and completely fluent in the foot-tapping New Orleans and Dixieland sound.


Taking Louis Armstrong's Hot Five and Hot Seven recordings of the 1920's as their starting point they built on this foundation and added their own take on the original arrangements. They now have a setlist comprising of some of the best known tunes of the era and you can expect to hear music from the likes of Jelly Roll Morton, King Oliver, Sidney Bechet and Kid Ory.


Using sousaphone as their bass instrument, and all other instruments being completely portable, the band is completely acoustic and mobile; free to stroll around your event or move quickly from one venue to another. Lively, fun, entertaining and charismatic; the perfect band to provide the sound track to your garden party, drinks reception, festival or wedding.
