The Last Chance Ragtime Band

Jazz for Dancers...

We are a stomping Lindy Hop Jazz Band based in the East Midlands. We play the best swing music especially crafted for dancers.

The Last Chance Ragtime Band is a group dedicated to putting jazz on the dance floor. Taking their inspiration from the New Orleans Jazz Bands of Frenchman Street, LCRB plays music especially crafted for swing dancers from greats such as Jelly Roll Morton, Ella, Benny Goodman, Louis Prima, Louis Armstrong and Hoagy Carmichael. We cater for Lindy Hop, Blues, Balboa and Shag dancers. Stephen Pagano (Piano/Vocals) is also a Lindy Hop and Balboa dancer/instructor.

 We have played for: ...Bletchley Park, Cambridge Lindy Hoppers (inc. CLX), Oxford Lindy Hoppers (inc. Oxford Swing Festival and OLX), Twinwoods Festival (Tin Hat), (inc. GNSH), Swingsters (Bedford), Swingrave, Market Harborough Swing Dance, Norwich Lindy, Cool Yule, Yakarocker (Lille, France), Swing Dance MK, Hepcats Holiday, The Cotton Club (Northampton), The Towersey Festival, Get In The Swing, as well as numerous private parties, weddings and dances.
