Steve Tucker All Star Jazz Band
Steve launched the jazz band in North Devon (UK) fourteen years ago, basing the sound on the ever popular classic songs and show tunes of the 1920s, 30s and 40s. Since then the Steve Tucker All Stars have been hugely popular around Devon and the South West. They have benefited from good CD airplay from the BBC in particular, whilst newspapers and magazines have generously acknowledged the band’s energy, enthusiasm and exciting performances.
Steve has played or recorded with many top West Country jazz bands and musicians: Derek Winters (Ken Colyer & Chris Blount band), Norman Thatcher (Ken Colyer band), Alan Robinson of the Ken Colyer Trust band, jazz guitarist Tony Oreshko, Jez Huggett (Hawkwind and Band of Gold), Brian Carrick and Roy Pellett, Joy Parke (winner of the prestigious Cleo Laine award), Craig Milverton (George Melly. Digby Fairweather, Acker Bilk, Kenny Ball and BBC’s blues man Paul Jones from Manfred Mann; Craig was also voted best jazz pianist of the year at the British jazz awards) and Charlie Hearnshaw to name a but a few.
