About the band!

"In 2012, after 22 years, Robert Duis left the Limehouse-Jazzband.
To play the music of the "Hot Five & the Hot Seven" was our idea to start
a HOT SIX - combination => Blue River Jazz Band

and a Adrian Rollini Project under the name:

                            "OLD DUTCH & NEW ORLEANS"

        with Bass-Sax / Contra-Bass / Banjo and Cornet.
In a way we might describe our music as a combination of less rigid arranged
"collectives" and a lot of freedom.
People can both listen to- and can dance on our music.
Our "BLUE RIVER JAZZ BAND" has a repertory of very well known pieces and
also tunes we might call: "Forgotten Melodies".
"Musicians" - on the website - shows the names of the band-members.
All come from very well known jazz-bands in our country".
