“Ragtime Band Comes To The Coast“
Wellington 7 piece group, The Roseneath Centennial Ragtime Band are bringing their ragtime throw back show to the Kapiti Coast this month. Set to play St. Peters Hall, Paekakariki on Saturday June 23rd, this is the first in a series of Community Hall shows that the band are planning to do.
“St. Peters Hall is such a great venue ” says drummer Mike Jensen. “We’re really looking forward to playing there”.
The idea to do a community hall series came from a show the band did last year. “We did a gig at this charming old hall in Breaker Bay. It was like stepping back in time to 1950’s New Zealand. People were dressed in vintage clothes, there was a shared bbq, and a packed dance floor”
“We’re looking to try and recreate that same kind of vibe with the Community Hall gigs, a Saturday Night shin dig like they would have had a few years ago” says piano player, Dayle Jellyman.
The band are known for their energetic live shows and impeccable dress sense and play mostly original music that is inspired by the eclectic sounds of New Orleans. “We have a 3 piece horn section, upright bass, drums, acoustic guitar and we all sing. We even haul an upright piano to all of our shows”, says Dayle Jellyman. “We definitely get people up and moving, and we throw in a few sing along numbers for good measure too!”
Having recently played to a sell-out crowd at the San Francisco Bathhouse in Wellington last month with brass band, The Richter City Rebels, (which featured a combined 16 piece group), the band are keen to take their music on the road and play to some new crowds.
“We want to branch out of Wellington a bit more and play to people who may not have seen us or heard of us before. If it goes well, we will set up more gigs like this. There are quite a few beautiful old halls that we would love to play in” says Mike Jensen.
The Roseneath Centennial Ragtime Band, Saturday June 23rd, St. Peter’s Hall, Paekakariki. $15 (Door sales only). 8pm
Listen to “Mean Ol’ Woman” from our new album!
“In the melting pot of turn of the century New Orleans, jazz, the blues and ragtime was the music for every occasion and station in life – from christening parties to funeral parades and every liquor-fuelled dance floor in between. Wellington’s Roseneath Centennial Ragtime Band specialise in this hypnotic and irresistible musical force of nature that pulls heartstrings, shakes booties and stomps feet”. (T. Rodwell)
Hailing from the windy city, Wellington, New Zealand, the Roseneath Centennial Ragtime Band was formed in 2011 by Dayle Jellyman and Mike Jensen. Paying dues to legendary musician, Louis Armstrong and the New Orleans’ jazz and blues tradition from the early 1900’s, the Roseneath Centennial Ragtime Band bring back to life the music that filled the saloons, brothels, sporting houses and juice joints of this bygone era.
The Roseneath Centennial Ragtime Band is all about playing music that gets people up and moving, don’t look for fancy solos here, but make sure you bring your dancing shoes with you!
Having started out playing traditional tunes and arrangements of common ragtime and early jazz standards, they’ve moved towards playing entirely original music, serving up their our own version of gumbo, cornbread and collared greens, Roseneath style!
The Roseneath Centennial Ragtime Band is:
- Mike Jensen: trap drums, vocals
- Dayle Jellyman: piano, vocals
- Dan Yeabsley: upright bass
- Hamish Jellyman: trombone
- Adrian Jensen: guitar
- Matt Enright: trumpet, vocals
- Frankie Curac: clarinet, vocals
