Windy City Jazzmen

Styles:Dixieland/Mainstream/Swing/Modern

THE WINDY CITY JAZZMEN is a versatile eight piece band which, with its tightly orchestrated arrangements can sound like a Big Band. It plays music from New Orleans, Chicago, the Swing Era, mainstream jazz, the 'shuffle sounds' of Louis Prima, Rock Jazz and popular standards that have a jazz flavour. Repertoire is chosen to suit the occasion.

Masina, the Band's vocalist is a stylish and accomplished singer in the tradition to the Billie Holliday and Ella Fitzgerald - and she really looks the part. Other memebers are Brian Copping (Reeds), Bob Benton (Trombone), Lindsay Timms (Trumpet), Tony Eardly (Piano), John Perry (Double Bass/Vocals), Bill Tattersall (Drums) and Kevin Ferguson (Guitar).

Over the past few years, The Windy City Jazzmen have performed regularly at The Jazz Club of WA, Jazz Fremantle and at the Toodyay and York Jazz Festivals.
