Kevin Scott : Band Leader : Tenor Banjo, Tenor Guitar & Vocals
Spent the early part of his jazz career running a Classic style band, before going on to form the Golden Eagle. His playing is very much influenced by the revival period, in particular, Kid Howard, Bunk Johnson and George Lewis.
Alan Cresswell : Clarinet
One of the busiest clarinettist in the country and we’re extremely fortunate to have him on board. His playing has rhythm, musicality and that must have ingredient, melody.
Malc Murphy : Drums & Vocals
Malc is one of the few exponents of the true New Orleans style, and as such has played with hundreds of bands both at home and abroad. His most most notable engagement was the seven years he spent with Ken Colyer’s Jazzmen.
Roy Stokes : Trombone, Vocals
What hasn’t this man done? You name them and Roy’s probably played with them. He has a wonderful gutsy style, much in the manner of Jim Robinson and Louis Nelson.
Chris “Thumper” Thompson : Double Bass, vocals
Well known in the south of England, Chris’s playing is steady and hard-driving, esssential for New Orleans dance music.
Tony Karavis : Cornet
Tony is another player steeped in the New Orleans tradition. He has a lovely melodic style and is a happy team player. A real asset to the band.
