The Valley Stompers
Mix a march from the American civil war with a stately measure of quadrille, a creole love call and a double dose of blues. Blend through three horns and serve over smoking hot rhythm garnished with fun. Do that right and you've cooked up something like a mess of New Orleans jazz.
Beware of cheap imitations!
For a taste of the real thing catch the Valley Stompers. Dixieland band. The Stompers have been cooking the righteous recipes for over 30 years; Joe Oliver, Kid Ory, Sidney Bechet, Louis Armstrong, all that great stuff.
Bring sippin' whiskey and sail away on a trip down the Mississippi
The Valley Stompers have been playing original Dixieland Jazz in Wellington since 1971 and are playing better than ever.
They are always developing new arrangements and adding numbers. This type of jazz is fun and tunes are never played the same twice in a row. It is high energy music with improvisation from all the instruments.

It is a complete mystery just what valley the band is named after. Some think it is the Hutt Valley. Others claim they can prove it is the Ngaio valley, Wilton Valley, Plimmerton Valley, Aro Valley or any one of the hundreds of valleys in Wellington.

Many will remember the band from student days when the Stompers were a leading part of the Dixieland jazz revival in Wellington.
They featured every Wednesday evening for 13 years from 1975 in what was then the Western Park Tavern in Thorndon.

The Wellington Jazz club hosted the thirty year birthday party for the band in April 2001.

It is not just the name of the band which has stood the test of time. Total number of years of service shared by the existing players is about forty seven.

Ideal for: background theme setting music for private party, parade, outdoor event, family day, wedding, corporate event
