A bit of History....
After meeting for an impromptu gig in early 2011, Drew, George and Jeremy found they worked really well together and loved every second of it.
When Jeremy left later that year to pursue an overseas music contract, Drew decided to form a standing band with George and two other musical colleagues: Stuart, on Keyboard; and Will, on Double Bass.
They quickly rekindled the spirit they found earlier in the year and moved into 2012 under the name Willow Jam Jazz Band.
Fast forward to late 2015. Sadly, Stuart left the band due to university and other commitments. it was then Trevor joined as a session musician, filling the gap until Tim joined on Guitar in mid 2016.
In 2017, Carena joined the band to fill the still vacant keyboard position. With the addition of Tim and Carena, the band started in a new direction. By adding both male and female vocals, plus expanding out into the genres of soul, blues and rock&roll - The band has since moved from strength to strength.
