Jeremy formed THE DART VALLEY STOMPERS in July 2005 with the intention of playing lively, exciting New Orleans jazz and music from the 20s and 30s. THE DART VALLEY STOMPERS, featuring some of the top musicians in the UK, quickly gelled into an efficient unit and established a reputation in their native South Devon.
The band is lead by Jeremy on saxes, clarinet & vocals and he is joined by Graham Trevarton (trumpet & vocals), Ron Milford (trombone & vocals), John Whitlock (banjo & guitar), Lukas Drinkwater (bass) & Ron Berry (drums).
For smaller venues and budgets, the band can also be booked as a 5 piece (saxes & vocals, trombone & vocals, banjo & guitar, bass & drums) or as a 4 piece (saxes & vocals, trombone & vocals, banjo & guitar, bass).
THE DART VALLEY STOMPERS can also perform as an acoustic strolling band.
This enables them to move about and become "wandering minstrels" playing amongst the audience, or leading parades and carnival processions.
The band is very popular and is regularly re-booked to appear at jazz festivals and jazz clubs throughout the UK. As well as touring throughout the UK, they also arrange trips to France, taking with them supporters from all over the country.
An ideal band for Jazz clubs, Jazz festivals, weddings, parties & corporate events - in fact any venue or occasion requiring top-class entertainment.
With the emphasis on entertainment, and playing at a volume sympathetic to the occasion, Jeremy and the band pride themselves on a professional approach to their music, presentation and appearance.
Although based in Devon, THE DART VALLEY STOMPERS is prepared to travel anywhere in the UK and abroad.
