The Gramophone Band was inspired by the magic of a wind-up picnic gramophone box and a suitcase of old 10inch Jazz records that they found at a garage sale in Timaru.
The band enjoys performing the sweet dulcet tones and the toe tapping tunes of the 1920's through to the 1960's - from Gypsy Jazz, Swing, Ragtime to Rock-a-Billy - but although they are a "Vintage Band”, they also compose their own music and arrange retro renditions of modern songs.
The Gramophone Band can bring you a magical evening of vintage music, wonderful nonsense and beautiful tunes. They can perform a huge ranges of styles. They can be anything from a sophisticated accompaniment to cocktails and canopes to a rollicking good-time party band.
