Bollington Jazz Club
Frog and Henry
The band borrowed the phrase ‘string and brass band’ from the descriptions of the earliest dance and jazz bands. And in that tradition they feature violin and mandolin-banjo as melody instruments along with clarinet and baritone saxophone. They’ve even designed a foot-operated tuba that allows one person to play tuba and six-string banjo simultaneously!
Some of the Frog & Henry influences include The Dixieland Jug Blowers, Frenchy’s Stringband, Lionel Belasco, Leecan & Cooksey, Sara Martin, King Oliver, Johnny Dodds and others (click on links to listen).
