The Red Jackets Jazzband was founded in 2009 in the jazz city of Bergen op Zoom and plays real street jazz in all tastes: from the well-known traditionals of the early 20th century, via the blues to the newer Rebirth classics of the second half of the last century. All these authentic New Orleans styles have the same core: making music is about fun. As a band, you don't have to have fun alone, but with the entire audience. You don't have to be a jazz lover to be convinced of the power of this timeless music.
Based on an authentic street parade rhythm section with the indispensable sound of the washboard and the banjo, the Red Jackets Jazzband brings the music with conviction to and among the people on the street, exactly where it originated and belonged.
Dressed in the eponymous red jackets, the band and its members have earned their spurs on the street and have become an indispensable part of the line-ups of (inter)national Jazz festivals. With representations from several generations, the orchestra is a successful combination of youthful enthusiasm and refined musicians: good music, a dose of enthusiasm and unpredictability!
