Pete Lay's Gambit Jazzmen

Band Information

Just like the early Ken Colyer, Kid Ory and George Lewis bands, considered a powerful combination, believing that the audience should be able to hear us at the back of the hall.  Their repertoire covers a wide range of musical styles.  Just as happy playing Oliver, Morton and Piron tunes as playing tunes of the Revival period. Not stuck in any one particular mode whether it be Classic Jazz or Traditional-style or New Orleans. Their heroes are Kid Ory ~ George Lewis ~ Bunk Johnson ~ King Oliver ~ Freddie Keppard .
