Chris Pearce’s Frenchmen Street Jazz Band

Chris Pearce's Frenchmen Street Jazz Band

The band was originally formed in 2002 after Chris’s first trip to New Orleans: as a result, he named the band after the famous Snug Harbour Jazz Club on Frenchmen Street. Chris was also a member of The Blue Note Jazz Band in Bristol and played with Acker Bilk, Humphrey LytteltonBud Freeman, Wild Bill Davison and many more. Chris left the Blue Notes to join The Antique Six Jazz Band. Now that The Antique Six has ceased playing, Chris has re-formed his own band.
