The Stevedores Jazz Band, a seven-piece traditional jazz band, enjoy an excellent reputation as one of Perth’s top trad jazz bands.

The Stevedores were formed in 1992 by Bert Nicholls (Banjo) and were resident at the Railway Hotel in Fremantle between 1992 and 1995. After Bert’s passing in 1999 his wife Lynn took over as leader and banjo player. The band plays an up-tempo style of traditional jazz suitable for dancing and all types of social occasions. They have a long and wide-ranging performance history including weddings in the country, wineries and private parties, along with corporate functions aboard the paddle steamer “Decoy”.
