The quintet was created and is led by vintage vocalist Damaris Jean. Damaris Jean was originally performing with backing tracks at well known vintage events, private and corporate functions. Her passion to sing with live musicians led to the creation of Ragtime Rewind.
Damaris first started performing with pianist Jonny after a recommendation from the director of a well know swing dance festival, DJAM. The duet soon expanded to a trio with double bass, and then to a quintet, growing rapidly in popularity in a short space of time.
Pianist Jonny is a talented musician and also plays dru ... ms. Drummer Kenneth has years of experience as a jazz performer and also plays piano. Part of the act sees them swap places and take on each others roles! Double bass player Simon took his exams on double bass in his teens that later evolved to his playing bass in a ska band. He has gone back to his roots in Ragtime Rewind and is loving every minute of it. Last but not least is the beautiful Louise our talented saxophone player. Louise particularly loves songs where she can let go with a sax solo, walking into the audience and feeling the moment. All members of the band love the songs they perform and enjoy each other's company. Their natural repartee off stage comes across in their performances as well as their passion for the songs they play.
