DOWNTOWN DIXIELANDERS GREAT BIG MARCHING BAND
No marching, just a riot of undisciplined mayhem brought together by the inimitable Michael Cousins on trombone. Jammer Marion Lustig has unaccountably been asked to play recorder but will probably not be heard above the cacophony. Last year the audience loved this band – perhaps because of its humour, definitely not its musicality.
