Get your glad rags on, folks because the Jazz Age is in full swing!
Taking you back to the golden age of jazz, The Easy Rollers are a roaring seven-piece vintage jazz band performing hits from the speakeasy bars of the Prohibition era through to the end of the Swing era. Based in Manchester, they have had audiences jumpin’ and jivin’ on dance floors across the country.
Since 2016 they have been steadily building a reputation as one of the hardest working swing bands in the north of England, with appearances at Manchester Jazz Festival, Cheltenham Jazz Festival, Lake District Summer Music, Buxton International Festival, Manchester Day, Brecon Jazz Festival, Marsden Jazz Festival and the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. The Easy Rollers have also organised a number of UK tours, sharing their enthusiasm for this music through gigs, Lindy Hop events and theatre shows.
