Smitty’s Big Four
Kansas Smitty’s has become a name synonymous with good music and real people. You’ll hear the sounds of New York, New Orleans, Paris, and Havana in their sour mash of jazz genres. Smitty’s musicians are young and hungry virtuosos whose musical flights are more like athletic miracles than practice room exercises. Jazz with grit. You’ve never seen another band like this one because it doesn’t exist. Of course we won’t expect you to take our word for it…
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 tightness whilst maintaining the melodic integrity of the canon. The band is made up of Pete Horsfall, Giacomo Smith, Dave Archer, and Ferg Ireland.
