1920s and 30s numbers from Duke Ellington & Cab Calloway, played by a very talented seven-piece band.
Formed in 2015, the Meer Cats is made up of the finest early jazz specialists in London, playing the music of Duke Ellington’s bands of the late 1920s and early 1930s. Much of what they play is in the famous “JUNGLE STYLE”, with growling trumpet and trombone, haunting clarinet, swooping sax and African drum rhythms. However, there is much in our repertoire for the swing dancers. Come and hear us and expect the sounds of the Cotton Club in New York!
