The Simcoe County Jazz Society Presents:
The Ragweed Jazz Band
No trekking to Toronto to enjoy toe-tapping live music from the golden years of jazz – Right in our own backyard, the Simcoe County Jazz Society brings back, by popular demand, this mainstay of traditional jazz, the Ragweed Jazz Band.
For many years this band has happily played for its local fans, but more recently has found enthusiastic acceptance farther afield. With appearances in Orillia, London Ontario, and the USA, they continue to provide great, danceable music of the 1930s and 40s.
Their typical lineup includes Brian Graville, trumpet; Jim Purdie, reeds & washboard; Manfred Koch, trombone; Bob Wallace, bass and Jamie MacPherson, banjo.
