Dutch Vintage Jazzband Alice in Dixieland is a group of six professional female jazzmusicians, who gleefully slalom between swing, mainstream, musical, dixieland and bebop. Beside their impeccable instrument control the musicians display their vocal qualities. That’s why the close-harmony vocals (Andrews Sisters) are one of the high features of the band.Alice_par_John_Tenniel.png

Alice was founded in 1978 and has treated the audience to inspired soloing, sparkling close-harmony vocals, splattering horn collectives and a sympathetic stage performance from the Azores to Northern Finland, from Schotland to Poland, from Tunesia to Germany.

The band is named after the famous book of the English writer Lewis Carroll: “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland”, written in 1865. (Drawing of John Tenniel)
