Alligator Gumbo

Alligator Gumbo 5

Alligator Gumbo are an exciting Leeds based swing band, with a line-up of clarinet, violin, trumpet, trombone, washboard, accordion, steel guitar and double bass. They play New Orleans swing/jazz from the 1920s era with songs made popular by the likes of Louis Armstrong, King Oliver, and Jelly Roll Morton, performed in the traditional style of upbeat tempos, entertaining improvisations and footstomping swinging rhythms.
