The tale of Spicy Advice

”The best jazz band in Europe is Swedish”
(Swedish newspaper SvD after Spicy Advice’s victory in Euro Jazz Festival, Paris, July 2007)
It all began in 1994 in the north of Sweden, when the young trumpet player Jocke Falk formed a New Orleans jazz band together with some teenage friends. Spicy Advice Rag.me Band was born! The young musicians were warmly and enthusiastically greeted by the audience in local jazz clubs and traditonal jazz festivals. But at that early stage no one could ever imagine it would become such a persistent and successful project. In 1998 Spicy Advice switched its base to Stockholm and the establishment was a fact. Soon Spicy Advice Ragtime Band made its first international appearance and became part of the international jazz scene.

Spicy Advice Ragtime Band has visited several of the big jazz festivals of Europe, won prestigious awards and recorded five CDs. The combination of playful innovation and the brisk pureness of the New Orleans jazz style has taken the audience by storm and has made the band a popular act even outside the traditional jazz forums.
