Bold, brassy and imaginative, The Original Rabbit Foot Spasm Band have been moving feet in the dancehalls of  Europe since 2007.  Listen to our music here. 


The band's original compositions celebrate the high life - and low life - of the British Isles.  


Among their musical heroes are Louis Armstrong, Louis Jordan, Louis Prima, Sidney Bechet, Bessie Smith - and homegrown jazz legends such as Nat Gonella and George Webb.


The band believe that jazz and blues are a living, exciting music - as relevant today as they were in early 20th century. They've won a large, enthusiastic audience for their own brand of  upbeat "Jump Steady" jazz.
