Jazz to dance to

Hi there! Welcome to the website of Royal Buckets, a Dutch jazzband located in Den Bosch, (on some maps s-Hertogenbosch) Brabant (southern province).

The Royal Buckets is a band that brings fun and plays songs to which you can dance. Foxtrot, swingdance, Lindy Hop or just messin' around .... With repertoire mainly from the American jazz tradition. Traditional jazz with elements of Swing and New Orleans jazz. You'll feel happy with a cheerful jazzy note in your garden or living room, your party room, club or festival, we'll make sure of that!

And even without dancing you will hopefully find it pleasant to watch and listen to.

"There may be dancing," the bandleader shouted. "But rather not", the band would reply and the audience could laugh at this. Because dancing is fun, energy, the blood flows, the senses are stimulated. And to inspire you, where there is space and budget, we are accompanied by lindy hop, swing dance and charleston dancers dressed in style. Seeing is participating!
