Fish Seller. Grand Dominion J.B 1988
Another good traditional revival band is the Grand Dominion Jazz Band. The band was formed in the early eighties and had musicians from the Northwestern United States and British Columbia in Canada. They perform very much in the style of the earlier British trad bands. Three of the members are originally from Great Britain and Ireland.
Leader/banjoist Mike Cox has actually moved back to England, clarinettist Jerry Green plays clarinet in the style of Wally Fawkes and trombonist Jim Armstrong is a follower of Chris Barber. The American members are Bob Jackson on trumpet, Bob Pelland on piano and Mike Duffy and Stephen Joseph on bass and drums.
