Hi Folks,
I've just uploaded a new video of the Gresty /White Ragtimers  playing 
the Muggsy arrangement of 'Jazz Band Ball' filmed at the Pakefield 
Festival earlier this month.
here are the notes with the video:
Filmed at the Pakefield Now You Has Jazz Jazz Jazz Festival on Friday 
6th March 2009. The Ragtimers specialise in recreating the arrangements 
of the Muggsy Spanier and Bob Crosby Bands. The line up features Alan 
Gresty, trumpet, Brian White, clarinet, Geoff Cole, trombone, John 
Crocker, tenor sax (depping for regular member Goff Dubber who was 
unwell) Colin Bray, piano, Tony Bagot, bass and John Petters drums.

The line-up is almost a who's who of British jazz. Alan & tony played 
with Monty Sunshine's band for years. Brian has led his own Magna Jazz 
Band as well as working with prety well everybody. Geoff was in the Ken 
Colyer band for years, John Crocker with Barber....
