The Shout Band tradition of the South Eastern United States originated from the exuberant church music of North Carolina. African – American brass players formed bands predominantly trombone-based, inspired by jazz, blues and Dixieland, gospel and old-time spirituals: imagine a more souful version of New Orleans Brass Band. Star trombonist Dennis Rollins has reinterpreted this Black musical tradition and brought together the UK’s top jazz, funk, Latin and Ska trombonists to form his own ‘Shout Band’ – BoneYard, which began life as a commission from South Hill Park Arts Centre, Bracknell for it’s Wildefire event last autumn. This performance is part of a series of performances sponsored by The Arts Council.
