Band Info

Phil Probert, banjo and guitar, joined his first band, on Merseyside, aged 15. He now lives in the more genteel surroundings of the Malvern Hills, where men are men and the sheep are nervous. He played for the university's trad band for three years while at Cambridge, then joined the Blue Magnolia Jazz Orchestra back in Liverpool. During the 1980s and 90s he played for George Huxleys All Stars until work commitments took him overseas. Since retiring from the allegedly real world, he
works as a regular member of Johnny Everett's Red Dragons, Denis Armstrong's Great Northern Jazz Band, and the Sheila Fawkes Quintet, joining Frenchmen Street in 2011. Phil also runs his own Jazzmates small combos playing the great melodies of the 1930s and 40s. Phils personal musical heroes are Johnny St Cyr, Freddie Green and Barney Kessel. If he ever gets to heaven, he hopes to sit in with Buck Clayton's band while Freddie Green is off having a pint of elixir.
