Smitty's Big Four

The Big Four are the kid brother of the Kansas Smitty's House Band and were born three years ago in the belly of Waterloo's cavernous vaults. Since its inception the band has taken on a trajectory independent from the House Band's. Their infectious beat has raised people up out of their seats from Shoreditch House to The Hackney Empire with small group interpretations of songs by their favourite ragtime and jazz masters: Jelly Roll Morton, Scott Joplin, Sidney Bechet and some Django Reinhardt.

The Big Four's unique combination of trumpet, soprano sax/clarinet, guitar and bass, separates the group from traditional Dixieland groups with the omission of drums and piano. This streamlined formation allows the band to navigate and tightness while maintaining the melodic integrity of the canon. The band is made up of Pete Horsfall, Giacomo Smith, Dave Archer, and Ferg Ireland.
