Enjoy 1½ hours live jazz with various artists while sailing through the harbour and canals of Copenhagen. Until now 4 bands have entertained with jazz, swing, dixie, ragtime, gospel and blues in an enchanting mix of rhythms from slave songs to bebop. This year we have added three new bands whose members are between 25 and 75 years – this indeed brings new inspiration.
Ever since Scandinavian Rhythm Boys was established in 2005 the band has changed Copenhagen’s harbour to Mississippi with charming rhythms from the South. Doc Houlinds All Stars delivers good time jazz as if the location was at one of New Orleans small cafés and dancing halls. Henning Munk & Plumperne offers a solid and happy swing with a French touch á la Sidney Bechet. This year we introduce three new bands: Basement Jazzband delivers dixieland music and Zebrass is inspired by early brass band music combined with a wonderful Caribbean drive. Chris Tanner Rifftet unites in a charming way classic jazz with funk. Find schedule for the the bands here
