The Harbour Jazzband goes way back. Former bandleader Ferdi Meijer founded a band in 1956 with friendship and a mutual love of traditional jazz as starting points. Since then, the group has been through a lot, touring the world's most beautiful locations, recording various albums, winning prizes at several jazz competitions and working with countless orchestras. Obviously, a number of staff changes were inevitable in recent years, with many original members becoming too old to keep on performing. But a new line-up has also brought new zest to the band. And old traditions are kept alive in a balanced swing repertoire!
