Geschichte

The REVIVAL JASS BAND was formed in 1975, it was made up from the best known Dutch trad jazz bands (Dutch Swing College Band/New Orleans Syncopators/New Orleans Seven/ Ted Easton's Jazz Band/Pall Mall Jazz Band).
In a surprisingly short time the band became a fixture on the European jazz scene, mainly due to it's characteristic and completely individual sound, and galvanizing rythm section. The Revival Jass Band has made several records,CD's, radio and TV broadcasts and played at nearly all the European Jazz Festivals.(Breda, North Sea Jazz Festival, Dresden,Lenk,Biel,Frankfurt,Silkeborg,Moscow,Leningrad,Tallin,Athens,Sofia, Upton upon Severn,Oslo,Warsaw, Rimini, Bornholm, etc.) In the USA the Revival Jass Band took part in the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival and they played the Sacramento Dixieland Jubilee three years in a row.
