Hade Edge Junior Jazz Band is an eclectic mix of various jazz instruments forming into a large big band (of sorts!). Instruments include: trumpets, trombones, saxophones, clarinets, keyboards, guitars, bass guitars (and on occasion, double bass) and percussion.
Formed in 2006, the Jazz Honkers have been extremely successful and regularly perform a host of high-profile concerts (including Huddersfield’s St. Pauls Hall). A number of junior band members perform in the band on their ‘second instrument’, but the ensemble has also attracted a number of non-brass players on instruments such as guitar and saxophone.
The Jazz Honkers are directed by Simon Wood rehearse at the bandroom on Monday evenings.
