Smitty's Big Four is the feisty little brother of the House Band, specialising in ragtime and early jazz. The Big Four's unique combination of trumpet, soprano sax/clarinet, guitar and bass separates the group from traditional Dixieland groups with the omission of drums and piano. This streamlined formation allows the band to navigate New Orleans and swing standards with unparalleled energy and tightness while maintaining the melodic integrity of the canon. 


This line-up is lightweight and functional. Being completely acoustic it is perfect for background music or can equally well provide an eclectic focus of entertainment.
