Peter Morris and Ponjo's Stompers
- Serving East Anglia, London & the Midlands
Peter Morris and Ponjo's Stompers are a traditional Jazz Band playing as a Jazz trio in Essex with professional Jazz musicians that have more than 30 years of experience! Great for weddings, corporate events, festivals, after dinner parties & private functions!
The traditional Jazz band Ponjo's Stompers, was formed in 1972 by bassist Peter Morris, from the ashes of the defunct Ray Elliott Jazz Band, and quickly gained popularity by combining 'hot' Jazz with entertainment.
The instrumentation is the classic line up of cornet, clarinet, trombone, banjo, double bass and drums. Many Jazz luminaries have played with the band: Digby Fairweather, Humphrey Lyttelton, Wild Bill Davison, Mike Cotton, Monty Sunshine, Kenny Davern, Charlie Galbraith, Bob Kerr, Kenny Ball, Hugh Crozier, Martin Litton, Maxine Daniels and Ken Sims, to name but a few.
More than 30 years on the band is still playing entertaining traditional Jazz. They are a variety band like no other! The band can appear in combinations from a trio to a seven or eight piece band with a female Jazz singer.
All combinations are capable of playing acoustically and the need for an electricity supply can be purely academic. Whatever the combination, and wherever the venue, good, hot, foot-tapping, good-time Jazz is guaranteed!!
Peter is also part of COCKNEY DOODLE DO, a traditional cockney sing-a-long duo. He also appears as a solo keyboard player/vocalist playing laid-back 'lounge' Jazz in restaurants and at wedding receptions and parties. His music is drawn from the classic popular tunes of 1930-1950 era.
