Most people can remember jazz bands when they were growing up.
Were you a member of one, or perhaps one of your friends was in the band?
Or perhaps a family member was a player or supporters of the music?
Some people say the uniforms played a large part of the fascination of the jazz band.
The detail in the uniforms can be seen by looking at these photographs, from the elaborate head-dresses to the colourful outfits the different groups wore.
The hours the band members must have had to put aside to practice their music and routines, certainly showed in the displays put on for the public.
Were you a member of a jazz band, or one of the people that established one of our jazz bands?
Is your jazz band still going? Do you have memories you would like to share with us?
