Jazz Bands in Nottingham

Nottingham is perhaps most famous for, amongst many other things, the legend of Robin Hood. This storytelling history is, perhaps, one of the reasons why the music scene is so strong in the city and the surrounding area.

Robin Hood and his band of merry men have been characterised throughout folklore history as robbing from the rich to give to the poor, living in the middle of Sherwood Forest. Many people claim that he may have originally come from Yorkshire — indeed, a Robin Hood is shown in records as having lived in Wakefield in the 13th and 14th centuries.

The stories tend to focus around Hood’s support of the 12th century king Richard the Lionheart, who was away at the Third Crusade when his brother, John, was left in charge of his kingdom. The period of rule under John was a tumultuous one, with the revolt which ended his reign leading to the sealing of the Magna Carta, thereby restoring rule to the United Kingdom.

This was a hugely significant period of history, so to have Nottinghamshire linked with it — whether factually or in folklore, has contributed to the cultural heritage of the county. The number of classical and jazz bands in the area is testament to this. This is where we come in! If you’re interested in hiring a jazz band for your event, why not get in touch today to see what we can do for you?
