A review from Gateshead “Jazz At The Fell”  “Levee Ramblers, great favorites at the club", delivered their own rather special brand of egoless, pure ensemble style of New Orleans Jazz – as always played with such a lovely gentle, subtle, authentic feel and delightful foot tapping rhythm. It’s not by luck that this band are so hugely popular at clubs and festivals all over the UK and beyond”. Roly Veitch.

 Thanks very much for last night - it was great! Hope you and the rest of the band enjoyed it too. Definitely one to repeat! Councilor Liz Twist (Riverboat Shuffle -River Tyne September 2015)

"Well what a wonderful night we had", hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. You have a wonderful, talented band, great musicians. Thank you for coming and helping to make the Festival so successful and we hope to see you in the future. Amy Ward - Ryedale Jazz Festival 2015.
