About Funeral Jazz

What could be more memorable to commemorate and celebrate a life?

The Eureka Funeral Band has been offering this service 

for many years in the UK.

In New Orleans there has long been a tradition of employing a live band to play at funerals as you may have seen 

in the James Bond Film, ‘Live & Let Die’

We play old-time tuneful melodies, mainly from

 the 1920s, 30s & 40s.

These could include New Orleans spirituals e.g. Old Rugged Cross, Saints Go Marching In, Just a Closer Walk with Thee, or just

 popular tunes from the Great American Song Book.

A four-piece band is usual, to lead the funeral cortege from the gates of the cemetery to the door of the chapel or graveside, However, this could range from a solo saxophone player through to a full jazz parade band.   Musicians will be dressed in

 smart red or black uniforms.

A Grand Marshal, to dance in front of the band, can be added 

for extra spectacle.

Contact us should you have any specific needs or directions. 

We would be happy to discuss them with you and/or 

with your funeral director.

Based in Birmingham, West Midlands

the band can be available anywhere within an 80 mile radius.
