DixieMix was formed in 2006 and celebrate their
12th anniversary in November 2018
DixieMix Jazz Band, led by the youthful (and remarkably handsome) cornetist Simon Nelson has rapidly established itself as one of the UK's most engaging and hard working jazz ensembles.
The band brings together the best jazz musicians in East Anglia. Our talent, knowledge and enthusiasm for traditional jazz combines with ease to provide outstanding entertainment for all occasions. With the emphasis always on first class music mixed with great humour, this band never fails to provide a top quality performance.
The professional six piece band excel with slick arrangements of many jazz favourites, all with the DixieMix twist. Our fresh and enthusiastic approach has helped the band gain national recognition, leading to a tour with Rod Stewart, TV appearances and multiple festival and theatre gigs.
As well as playing for established jazz audiences, we are equally at home letting rip with an entertaining show creating a feel-good factor designed to please everyone. Which makes DixieMix the ideal choice for corporate events, weddings, garden parties, festivals, launches, dances and celebrations of every kind.
DixieMix are always looking for new venues and opportunities to perform. For more information and bookings please make
