The Old Fish Jazzband was formed in 2009 in Berlin with the intention of conserving and reviving the spirit and style of the ragtime music of the 1910s and 1920s which originated in New Orleans.
The band has travelled whole Europe, playing international jazz festivals, street festivals, innumerable cafes and bars, swing dance events, theatres and even opera festivals.
The band consists of musicians coming from a wide variety of different backgrounds and nationalities, namely France, Belgium, Germany, Sweden, Spain and Latvia. The typical instrumentation of Trumpet, Clarinet, Trombone, Tuba, Piano and Banjo opens up a wide range of musical intercourse and dynamics within the band. The joy and enthusiasm of the band is contagious. It is actually the biggest strength and backbone of the band. This along with an outburst of playfulness and musicality brings back the fire and lively energy of these old stomps and rags.
2019 Old Fish celebrates 10 years, and visits Sweden for the first time since 2011.
