formerly known as "The Mississippi Dreamboats

Jazz Leeds "Emily Bacons Good Time Gang" Emily Bacon vocals and piano. Liz Bacon clarinet, Peter Wright trumpet. Jeff Milner trombone. Sarah Thatcher banjo and tenor guitar. Spike Kennedy bass. Paul Bacon drums.

Paul and Liz were formerly known as "The Mississippi Dreamboats" However time has seen the band evolve and their daughter Emily on piano and vocals is now heading up "The Good Time Gang".

They are still rooted in the New Orleans style of jazz, surrounding themselves with musicians who are inspired by the Good Time Bands of the 40s, 50s and 60s. Jeff Milner on trombone is a true exponent of the Jim Robinson style from the George Lewis Band and Liz continues to be inspired by George Lewis. Sarah Thatcher on banjo and tenor guitar works in a great partnership with Spike Kennedy on bass and Paul on the drums, playing the solid beat of the dance halls of New Orleans.

Emily's vocal repertoire includes well known jazz standards, blues and spirituals.
Paul, Liz and Emily are also available as individual guests for other bands. More at http://www.baconsjazz.co.uk/
