THE ROBIN REECE JAZZ BLUES & ROCK BAND
The charismatic Robin Reece led his first jazz band, "The Reece Castle Jazz Band', from his home base of Chepstow in Wales. Moving further south into Devonshire, The Robin Reece Jazzmen have achieved a status not just for being ‘local heroes' but of becoming one of the finest bands from the West Country. From behind the clarinet and saxophones, Robin leads his band with much panache and humour always providing ebullient and exuberant jazz.
For more than fifty years the charismatic ROBIN REECE on Saxes/Clarinet/vocals (AND funny stories !) has been entertaining the public in many parts of the UK and Europe with his very individual brand of swinging jazz and blues and nowadays more than a good slice of Rock'n Roll and Country making the band more enjoyable to a greater cross section of both young and older listeners !!
Since the addition of JAMES CLEMAS on piano/keyboard/vocals...and ALAN JOHNSON on guitar/vocals the band have been getting "rave" reviews wherever they play..........
