12 June 2003 - Clevedon Jazz Club

Last year this band went down a ‘real treat’ at Saturday’s Long Weekend 
Shoppers Concert in the Triangle so we’ve brought them indoors for a Club 
Night gig on 12 June. In the old Rugby Club days Excelsior were a regular 
feature but this is their first appearance at Clevedon Jazz Club’s Walton 
Park Hotel venue.

The Excelsior Jazz Band was formed several years ago and they have been one 
of the resident bands at Bristol's world famous jazz pub, The Old Duke in 
Kings Street for many years.

The scope of this six piece band's repertoire lies within the Traditional 
spectrum, with numbers drawn from New Orleans through to standards from 
Dixieland as well as some Ellingtonian material.

As well as their residency at The Old Duke, the band have appeared live on 
radio and at many local and national jazz festivals. They have recorded an 
album and have supported such well known names as Roy Williams, Danny Moss, 
Acker Bilk and Alan Elsdon.

The doors open at 8pm, the music starts at 8.30pm and its £5-50 ‘on the 
door’. Further details of this and all other Clevedon Jazz Club events, and 
Club membership - members get a substantial discount on admission charges! 
- are available from Trev on 01275 343210 or from the Club’s web site at 

Good Jazzin'
