The Sugarfoot Ramblers are a group of young musicians from Melbourne who have studied and played contemporary jazz styles, but also share a love of traditional jazz.  After spending time in New Orleans, Travis Woods and Daniel Berry decided to form this band to explore the classic traditional jazz repertoire. The Sugarfoot Ramblers are Travis Woods (trumpet), Chris Vizard (trombone), Jon Hunt (clarinet), Matt Hayes (banjo), Hiroki Hoshino (bass) and Daniel Berry (drums).

The group has performed around town quite regularly over the years including appearances at the Wangaratta Jazz Festival, Newcastle Jazz Festival, Stonnington Jazz Festival, Bellingen Jazz Festival, Bennetts Lane Jazz Club, The Paris Cat, Fitzroy Pinnacle and Uptown Jazz Cafe.

Travis says, “We all love the music of Louis Armstrong, Sidney Bechet, Duke Ellington and Jelly Roll Morton, as well as local legends and personal heroes, The Red Onions and The Hoodangers.  So that’s the music we enjoy playing in this band.”
