Don't know about the US, but the Dutch Swing College Band (although at
first it had a different name) has been around since 1944 or 1945, non
Other contenders: Acker Bilk, Chris Barber, Kenny Ball and the
Merseysippi Jazz Band (all British), or the Barrelhouse Jazz Band of
FRankfurt, Germany, which was established in 1953 and, I believe, is
still going strong.
I'm sure that you'll find other long-lived bands in Europe.
