George’s Regis Jazz Band was founded in 1989 by George Bennett with the main intention of playing at gala functions in the Bognor Regis area.
The band has a nucleus of local musicians who, under George’s leadership, come together throughout the year in various arrangements to entertain music-lovers at functions all over West Sussex and sometimes further afield.
The band plays in different styles according to the type of function it is attending, the numbers ranging from traditional New Orleans marches and conventional ‘trad’ numbers to 1920s favourites and comedy routines.
The band is very popular with residents and holiday-makers alike and can be seen performing during the summer months at sea-front events, regular pub and restaurant sessions, at the Christmas shopping festivities and a whole range of other events including weddings, parties, carnivals, fêtes, festivals and corporate promotions.
The band features prominently on the front cover of Bob Crosby’s book “Jazz Around Chichester”. All proceeds from the sale of this book are donated to St. Wilfred’s Hospice, Chichester.
