THE WORLD OF MARCHING JAZZ BANDS ROCKED BY SWANSEA EAST SIDE REVOLT

Jazz bands are in decline – struggling to recruit  new members with a wealth of more sophisticated choices from computer games to mobile phones as alternatives

The bigtime for the bands was in the 1960s – 1980s when the coal mining areas that had originally spawned them during the general strike in 1926 were again in conflict with  tory government. Sure enough the kazoo bands emerged again.

I had the experience on most Sunday mornings of having my hangover bashed by the rehearsing o f the – world champions- East-Side band marching past my girlfriends flat.
