The Roseneath Centennial Ragtime Band - Community Halls Danc

The Roseneath Centennial Ragtime Band - Community Halls Dance Tour - Press Release 9/11/12

Fresh out of performances at World of WearableArts and community halls across the region, The Roseneath Centennial Ragtime Band is taking it's show on the road.

Their month-long Community Halls Dance Tour will see performances across the North Island in seven towns, from Auckland to Wellington, bringing their infectious, foot-stomping style to a range of rustic venues.

The seven-piece band prides itself on making people want to dance and have enjoyed the engagement and control over the sound they get from smaller halls.

"Its nice to be able to play on our own terms," pianist Dayle Jellyman says.

Jellyman's brother Hamish plays the trombone and they are both looking forward to playing in home town Wanganui.

The Jellymans are one of two sibling pairings in the band, with the second being guitarist Adrian Jensen and brother Mike on drums - who grew up in Auckland.

For those looking to swing, Auckland's Galatos in particular boasts a dance floor suspended on springs, "the fastest in Auckland," Jellyman says.

"If you've got some moves that you want to pull - that's the place to pull them."

The music is "timeless stuff - it just moves people," Mike Jensen says.

"It's nice, warm music to listen to and it makes you feel good. People can't help but say 'I just feel like dancing'."

The music is played entirely on acoustic instruments and 'Roseneath' boasts a wide repertoire of original music, with some old favourites thrown in, Jellyman says.

"We play some of the old stuff because we're in to it - but mostly we are writing our own."

The band goes to great lengths to look the part and fans have embraced the ragtime look, from retro gowns to dapper waistcoats, so dressing up in your finest is definitely encouraged.

Both young old appreciate the appeal of the music, with younger fans often saying they didn't expect to enjoy the raucous, bustling ragtime style as much as they did, and older fans can't help but get caught up as well.

Tickets are available from undertheradar.co.nz, and presale tickets will earn discounts on the band's album so get in quick because shows are likely to sell out.
