Birger’s Ragtime Band was formed in spring 2011 by five experienced jazz musicians. Their distinct love for the original jazz tradition brought these friends together, forming a new band keeping up the spirit of traditional New Orleans jazz. The repertoire consists of old tunes played by Louis Armstrong, King Oliver, Jelly Roll Morton and also gospels and spirituals.
The Helsinki based band performs frequently in clubs, restaurants, jazz festivals and churches. Summer 2013 and 2014 the band loaded a bus with their fans and drove to perform at Mannaminne Trad. Jazz Festival in Sweden. Performances also include weddings, private parties and jazz cruises.
The band’s vocalist Charlotta Kerbs joined the band in spring 2014. The other members are:
Jukka Järvelä- banjo, Robert De Godzinsky- piano, Jussi Sipilä- bass, Sven- Erik Krogius- drums & washboard and Birger Lindström- clarinet.
