New Orleans jazz par excellence – Doolally Tap -The Merchants Suite, Devizes 6 June 2018

On a warm summer Wednesday evening of June 6 a packed Merchants Suite in the centre of Devizes was treated to the delights, fun and expert musicianship of New Orleans jazz at its best - as part of the Devizes Arts Festival. ‘Doolally Tap’, who have been going ‘doolally’ on the London scene for more than four years, came to ‘far flung’ Wiltshire to the delight of an enthusiastic audience who wanted more: but all good things have to come to an end.

The promenading through the audience in true festival style, and rumbustious rags, were offset by the sensitive blues and gorgeous melodies to give a polished yet really entertaining evening - with all the frolicsome fun and energy of the New Orleans prohibition era.

For the best in live music, entertainment, literary and other events , treat yourself to one of those still to come in the Devizes Arts Festival – running until 17th June -
