Who are the Blue Rhythm Band?
Andrew Dickeson's Blue Rhythm Band is a band for dancers. They do what Basie did. They play 4 solid beats to the bar and no cheating.
Andrew Dickeson: Band leader, drummer, teacher, and jazz history lecturer at the Conservatorium of Music in Sydney.
Sydney lindy hoppers were looking for a band leader with one foot firmly in the Savoy Ballroom, and the other setting down a steady beat.
Andrew had had a group of musicians who wanted to play for audiences who could dig what they were putting down. Andrew Dickeson's Blue Rhythm Band is a dance band. Made by jazz musicians for the ultimate jazz fans.
The Blue Rhythm Band have become a steady dancers' favourite, booked for all the major Australian lindy hop events this year.
